The reason it seems to go faster is that when you're reading a book, you measure how much you've read by how much of what remains you've gotten through. When you read the first ten pages of a thousand-page book, you've read just one percent of what's left. Hardly anything. When you read ten pages of the last hundred pages of that same book, you've gone through ten percent of what's left. Nearly there! you think, rightly.
(This is more noticeable with paper books than with ebooks because they show you, consistently, what percentage of the book you've read.)
What's true in reading books is true with life and the time you have left. As time passes, you think: Nearly there!
