Audiobooks should be compared to the paper edition.

Thanks for letting me know, Evana! I will be checking to see how many books you have read in 2012. I'll be putting the number by your names. (I'm not caught up with mine, either! ☺)

message 39: by Alley (new)

Alley (alleycatfish) | 198 comments MIght want to change my total as well. I read 15 books that were < 170 pgs, so 245. As of right this minute, I've only read 258 books, but I have 2 that will be finished this weekend - both of which are > 170 pgs,

Done! Thanks!


message 41: by [deleted user] (new)

my total is actually 70 minus the books under 170pgs but I'm hoping to finish a couple books over the next day or so, so my total will probably go up again, but at this point I think this will be as good as it get :D

My goal for 2013 is to read 100 books but we'll see how that goes as the year goes on :)


message 42: by Moderators of NBRC, Challenger-in-Chief (new)

Moderators of NBRC | 30795 comments Mod
♥Kat♥, after a real quick look at your bookshelves and page count, I'd say you did 69 books, so I'll put down 70. Alright?
