According to link, on June 29, 2013 there are about 4 billion web pages on the World Wide Web.

According to [no longer exists], by May 2013 the average web page had increased in size to a bit over 1 MB.

According to link, 1 MB of data is about 500 pages of text.

If you can read 25 pages an hour for 20 hours a day you can read 500 pages a day. That means you need 4 billion days, or about 11 million years. This exaggerates, since images take a lot of MB but are quick to read. So divide by ten if you want, and guesstimate 1 million years.

How long would it take to read a medium sized egg (or strawberry as some say)? . Allegedly, that's the weight of the Internet.
