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!)

RC: Counting Pages Read . . only 950,517 to go!

One Million Pages
Reading Challenge

hosted at Smiling Shelves
more information and sign ups, here

Main goal: Read One Million Pages in your lifetime.

I had seen the GoodReads group, I think I even signed up, but as I kept forgetting my log-in info and use LibraryThing so much more, I deleted my GR account. :-(

I joined "Let Me Count the Ways" for 2013 with a top level of 10,000+. I'm sure I'll hit 50,000 this year, I've got four weeks and 600 pages to go. With that knowledge it will take me 20 years :-) I can think a worse things to spend 20 years doing.

The GR group says 15 picture books=1 book but I'm not counting books, I'm counting pages and don't know if I want to separate them, again. We'll see.

My first post about this was Jan 2012! I started blogging in 2009 so, if possible, that's how far back I'll go with my page count.

The funny thing is when I told my husband about the challenge, he thinks I've already met it!

2009 - 81,104 . . . still missing a couple but this is close enough!
2010 - 1,719 . . . terrible year of record keeping

I like the way you set up this post. I'm still trying to figure out how to keep track of the pages I read. Monthly and yearly totals seem like a good way to go!
