Its time your partner starts looking at how much has been achieved rather than worrying on how much is left to do. A realistic stock-taking of all that has happened in a positive way towards the attainment of the goal is needed at this hour rather than fret and fume.. Feeling desperate is part of the journey.
Believe that she is destined to achieve what she wants.Breaking down the tasks at hand ( the unfinished ones into smaller segments __ those that are achievable) will make her feel better. Small steps moving forward and believe in self that one has the ability to achieve come what may. Try getting 8 hours of sleep till you tide over the depressive feeling.Depression sets in bouts and doesn't last long. Perhaps a minor change in the lifestyle by including some amount of daily routine and regular exercise(e.g. walking, jogging or even swimming) can alleviate the seemingly grim situation.
Try visualizing how it would look on attaining the long cherished desire to complete Ph D.Two of my friends were non starters even after 7 years. Last week one of them has submitted his thesis. Have faith in yourself. All difficulties will trivialize as time passes and you take conscious steps not to tread the already trodden path.
You are destined for bigger things in life. May god bless you.

Kindly indicate the domain in which you are trying for PhD. It will be worth while if you can mention the area or tentative title. All PhD scholars go through this phase. After-all you had some motive to join to begin with. Motivation waxes and wanes on numerous factors (perhaps even with-in a day). Self-doubt is the biggest killer of instincts. So watch out ! I was a non-starter as far as writing the thesis is concerned (writers-block syndrome). Well, its matter of time. Push yourself, you will find yourself across the abyss.Good luck!!

Being into the 5th year of PhD this question is rather late !? All the same, by now you would be in a position to discern which article /material needs full reading and which one needs a gloss over. Having said that, unless all the reading translates into some notes writing the number of pages has no significance. At the end of the day what matters is how much progress are you making towards your goal on daily basis. I for one would not like to waste time in figuring out how many pages to read rather than make concrete advances. I must add that PhD is not end-all, its a stepping stone for future research for life time. I know I haven't answered your question (no. of pages).

REMEMBER five years is considerable time spent. I read during childhood from Reader's Digest, that one needs to spend one-hour every day for next 8 years, to become an authority on the subject, in the world. This was prior to the advent of internet . So, its the time spent, not the number (pages) that matters.

I would rather look at it upside down. What is the purpose /lessons brought out by each of them (FAIRY TALES, FABLES, MYTHS AND FOLKLORE ) given the background (for individuals, groups or organizations) thereafter categorizing them would bring in the comparisons most astutely than going round and around step III and IV in particular. Other steps are part of any PhD study. Of course use of technology cannot be missed out in the present circumstances. Hope I have been able to coney something useful, if not a new perspective!
