People / Resolutions

Sam Armstrong

The model’s New Year’s resolution takes him away from the screen and into the books.

“To read 52 books this year – a book a week. 

The average number of words per book is around 64000. My read speed is about 200 words per minute (not very fast), which means It will take me 320 minutes to finish a book (provided it’s not War and Peace). That divided by seven comes to around 45 minutes of reading a day. This seems achievable as my other New Year’s resolution is to cancel [my] Netflix subscription.”
