An 83-year-old man in Dorset, England has been meticulously keeping a diary for 66 years, and it is long. John Gadd started writing the diary in 1947, and it now has 21,000 pages, approximately 4,000,000 words, and over 33,000 photos. The 151-volume diary weighs half a ton. To put that in perspective it's eight times the size of War and Peace, four and a half times bigger than Shakespeare's collected works, and a little less than four times the size of the entire Harry Potter series.
