The most unexpected award, an award like no other.
The text of the award certificate read;
You did it! You’ve made it to the Top 5% of readers in Pocket.
This year, you read so many words in Pocket that you nearly outread everyone else. Give yourself a pat on the back!
Wale read 1,128,138 words in Pocket this year. That’s like reading the Great Gatsby 24times
And if the pages from those books were stacked end to end, they’d make it past the top of the Empire State Building.
Wale and over 10 million people use Pocket to save articles, videos, and more for later.
For those that do not know, Pocket is regarded as a “bookmark and read later” service. It comes in very handy if you frequently come across things on the Internet that you’d like to read but unable to do so at that time. With the requisite bookmarks, apps and extensions, it helps you to save stuff to check out these articles whenever you like.
Very unexpected, i must confess, but well deserved. Never knew i was that much of a book, sorry, gadget worm.
