If I have a daily routine of reading:
- x pages of a book, or x paragraphs, or x sentences, etc.
- Where the x object may change according to the book type (for example, if I read a poetry book, I'll read x poems; or if I read a foreign language book, I'll read x sentences)
What word should I use to generally describe the x items?
I'd like to use that word with counting, for example:
Every day at 20:00, I read my daily 5 <items>
I was tired and only read 2 out of my 7 <items> today, so tomorrow I'll read 12 <items>
I know I can just replace
<items> with the objects I'm reading (pages/paragraphs/sentences), but I wonder if there's a general word for them?
Alternatives I have in mind:
In my native language, I'd actually use 2 words that would translate to "reading sections", or "reading segments". Intuitively, that doesn't sound like a good English word choice.
