Time to Read

An Explorer reaches the North Pole at sunrise and takes an hour to set up camp and eat some breakfast. Finishing breakfast, she pulls out the copy of War and Peace that she brought with her and sits down to read. It takes her 10 minutes to read a page in the book. She stops every four hours for a 20 minute lunch break. Every five hours she takes a 30 minute catnap. Every three hours she takes a 15 minute break to stretch and go to the bathroom. At sunset it becomes too dark to read anymore, so she breaks camp and heads back in the dark. How many pages of war and peace did she get to read during her stay?
