You are correct! Folks are just enthusiastic... I'm reposting here my 26 weekly chunks, but I changed 218-280 & 281-319 to 218-263 & 264-319, as the long chorus ends at 263. It's difficult to cut up intelligently a text you haven't read. Further adjustments can be made if necessary!

Each month's first scheduled "deadline" is in brackets.

1-39 (October 7th), 40-103, 104-159, 160-217, 218-263 (November 4th), 264-319, 320-384, 385-474, 475-537 (December 2nd), 538-586, 587-635, 636-680, 681-762, 762-809 (January 6th), 810-854, 855-930, 931-974, 975-1071 (February 3rd), 1072-1135, 1136-1213, 1214-1294, 1295-1371 (March 3rd), 1372-1447, 1448-1520, 1521-1611, 1611-1673 (March 31st).

While I recognize the merits in insisting on an allotted amount of lines for each week,
for me this text presents a great deal of difficulty for many reasons, not least of which is
my inexperience with this kind of material. And in general, spending as much time as I need
on few lines is more preferable to me than charging ahead.

This is not to say I'm going to give up; I'm merely voicing my genuine concern that I may
not be able to stick to the schedule.
