Do we have to report what book we will be reading and the number of pages or do we just report it after were finished reading it?

I guess what I'm trying to say is do we have to reserve the pagecount?

I guess what I'm trying to say is do we have to reserve the pagecount?

I don't think we have to reserve the # of pages because different players can have the same number of pages (unlike other towers) but each player can have the same number of pages only once.

Meaning that both you and I can post a book with 384 pages but once we claim that number of pages, we cannot do so again.

Meaning that both you and I can post a book with 384 pages but once we claim that number of pages, we cannot do so again.

Now I have a question about the number of pages. Do we strictly with what GR says? Because I know sometimes the number of pages are way out there.

DG, if the pages of the book you are reading are very different from the same ISBN listed on GR, a librarian can adjust it for you. She will verify it with another resource but usually will take the number from your book-in-hand as more reliable than the GR data.

@Jo Ann: DG is correct, no reservation is necessary however only unique pagecount per reader is allowed (hence no planning thread)

@DG: If the specific ed you read has different number pages than what GR says then please note it when you report your reading. We'd go by what you have on your hand.

PS: I'll be deleting these comments on the first for the sake of tidy-ness as it's meant to be reporting thread only. Tx

The problem is that I'll be mostly reading ebooks/audiobooks so I won't have ways to compare to any printed issue.

for this one (specifically) - ebooks with no print versions don't count; audiobooks - use the most popular version here on goodreads

*D.G. ~Shameless Hussy~ wrote: "The problem is that I'll be mostly reading ebooks/audiobooks so I won't have ways to compare to any printed issue."*

ah, for ebook/audiobook, we'll stick with the pages for the most popular edition (usually the one on the top of the list of 'Other Edition')

Yes I know that. But that doesn't mean that the pages of the most popular edition is not wrong either. :) I find books with wrong pages all the time and I correct them if I have the printed version of the book (I'm a librarian.) I just wanted to make sure that it's not as if we have to hunt printed versions to verify and go with whatever GR says.

Yup, we are going with whatever GR says, in this case, for ease :)

I want to be sure I'm playing correctly ... in the Pages Tower, the books must be different from the ones in the other Towers. We can report a book only once in the game. --Just want to be sure I'm doing this right:)

Yes, only once in the whole game. Tien answered that question for me...let me see if I find the link.

Yes, LynnB, you can only use a book once and... I just noticed that you've reported Miss Bishop here and in the Scripts Tower too! As you can only use it once, I'll take off the one here as it's only for page numbers and you can fill that up easily with whatever you read.

*Karen wrote: "The Christmas Mysteryread 03/01/13 260 pages"*

Karen, the book edition you've linked to only has 247 pages on GR (is this right at all?) & I tried to look in 'Other Editions' but none of them has 260 pages.

Please let me know whether the edition you read is on GR at all (the ISBN would help, if you've got it?).

Thanks!

Glad you caught that - I hadn't even noticed.

No 247 is right, don't know how I got from that to 260. Might be time to go back to work, my brain is starting to turn to mush.

LOL - I went back to work yesterday and as I left home, I was wondering if I'd remember what / how I'm to do my work!

That's what I plan to do too!

Eeek, Karen, you were a bit slow with your shield and caught an arrow on your shoulder!

Please do NOT report any other reads until you have completed your recovery task & let me know when you have completed your recovery task in this thread.

Your recovery task is Famous Fortress #1 - Masada - Israel

FYI, if any of you are wondering, there are certain numbers (of the accumulated total pages), randomly drawn, that will trigger recovery tasks and the last person to post past that number will have to do the recovery tasks.

The number triggered by Karen was 5,622.

That means we have over 5000 out of 100,000 done already? That's over 1/20th of the goal on this tower already, and most of us have been posting other places. I'm amazed. Go us!

Susan, I've noted accumulated total & completion percentage in msg #6 :D

*Tien wrote: "Susan wrote: "Susan, I've noted accumulated total & completion percentage in msg #6 :D*

Oh, yeah. I keep forgetting. I look for it with the personal totals in message 3 (which has a coding typo again, I think). And when it isn't there, I forget to look farther.

message 1:by Tien (last edited Dec 20, 2012 02:23PM) (new)To read a total of 100,000 pages to knock this tower offThere is no pages limitation per book so you can claim picture books however the page number has to be unique per reader. That is each book you read will have different page numbers; you can only claim the number 251 (pages) once per reader.

The number of pages to be claimed will be determined by the edition that you read so please link the book to your specific edition. However, if you have read large print / audiobook / ebook, we will use the number of pages listed on the most popular edition of the book on GR (ie. the book on the top of the ‘Other Edition’ list). If your book is only in digital edition and does not include page numbers, then we will not allow it for this tower (this is just to make it easier for us to keep score).

Please ONLY post your completed reads
