I got a version that fits that description, so yes (I think). I remember noticing how large those numbers were and wishing they could be a lot smaller.
Who read all that and noticed that OTA didn't actually answer the original question? ("[…] how long would it take to slide […]"
) … and then go and find the thread
for that? … just me? Okay, I'll just be over there…

I read all the Harry Potter books. They're the only "officially published with an ISBN and everything" fiction books I've read in the last 20 years. Given the choice between fiction and non-, I prefer the latter because it seems more relevant. Nevertheless I don't find time to read nonfiction books either. I've also read a lot of non-ISBN-tagged fiction online (mostly thanks to the OTT).
The best thing about books is that you can skip around, which is particularly good for finding the answers to questions that the author seems to have decided to put somewhere near the end. For that reason I didn't start Homestuck
until its author claimed to have finished the series. I treat fiction books like textbooks — about half of the exercises have answers if you turn to the back.
The second best thing about books is that you can skip around, for finding a bit you knew in advance you were interested in. Finding the context for a Shakespeare quote is a typical example. I don't do that often with fiction, but it's happened.
Also of note, in Homestuck
after about the first 10,000 words of dialogue, I created a tool to auto-convert the dialogue to remove the l33t-sp34k encoding. For that reason I would not have read Homestuck
in printed form. (After another 10,000 words of dialogue I simply started skipping all the dialogue, and I don't think I missed much.)— mrob27
