Here's the sentence in the book I'm reading:

By doing so, you may be able to avoid having to wade through pages of

the last part of the sentence should refer to the pages, plural, rather
than the material, singular. Or maybe it's just up to the author. Or,
and this is quite possible, I'm just bored.
