Finished ISKCON Bhagavatham 7th Canto

After spending 4 years, finally, I have completed ISKCON Bhagavatham 7th Canto (9th volume). Bhagavatham has 12 cantos and ISKCON published those in 18 volumes.

To read the first four volumes (Cantos 1st, 2nd, 3rd first part and second part), I took one year.

For the next four volumes (Cantos 4th first and second parts, 5th and 6th), I took four years.

For the next volume (7th canto - 9th volume), I took four years.

After every four volumes, the time taken is increased by four times. If the same speed continues, then

For the 10th, 11th and 12th volumes, I would take 4*3 = 12 years

For 13th, 14th, 15th, 16th volumes, I would take 16*4 = 64 years

For 17th and 18th volumes, I would take 64*2 = 128 years

With this speed, I think I would take 204 years to finish the entire Bhagavatham, unless I get blessings from Krishna or the devotees of Krishna.
