I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Pages Read

This is great and we should do this one along with all our other challenges. It's being hosted at It's all about books. Basically, pick a number of pages you want to read this year and keep track. Check it out and sign-up. If you're already doing a challenge, it shouldn't be too much more to keep track of your pages.

If you read ebooks, check amazon or Barnes & Noble for print pages and use that number. Some of my ebooks are not available as print so I'll need to figure out another way. I added up the pages I already read of my print books then multiplied by 12 to get just over 40,000. I don't think my ebook pages will be 10g but I do want to stretch myself some but not too much (there is a daughter's wedding, a vacation & family reunion to take into consideration). I'm going to choose 50,000 pages to be read this year. I should make it, will all the challenge books I need to read :)

Now, there is an important quote from the rules "...and other stuff you read..." so textbooks? Newspapers? Magazines? I don't know and didn't look so I'm going to go by books for now.

Okay, apparently I had posted questions about ebooks and she counted the words on a page of a paperback :o Her count is 300 words so that's what I'm going to use.

3-1: There is no way you'll be able to make sense of this list if all I do is list my books so I'm moving them. Just to let you know that some of my titles will be short stories or even very short stories but they are purchased as a separate title and not part of a collection. Also, I read everything so some of these may be a children's books :-)
