Let's have fun with numbers.

Standard Challenge:
Read a book with less than 100 pages.
Read a book with 100-200 pages.
Read a book with 200-300 pages.
Read a book with 300-400 pages.
Read a book with more than 400 pages.

Bonus Challenges:
Read a book that ends with a "9" page - for September. (ie: if it has 399 pages, it counts)
Read a book that ends in 13 - either chapter or page number (so, a book with thirteen chapters, or a book with 213 pages would count).
Read a book that has numbers in the title.
Read a book with a title comprised of nine letters.
(I had to change the last bonus one because the original goal was too hard. ^.^)

Since this is the September challenge, there are nine goals. How many can you finish?
Have fun!

From Sheri:
FYI - If you go to your bookshelf, at the top of the page there is a link called "shelf settings: custom" - from here you can choose the option of sorting your shelves by page number (so you don't have to figure it out manually!)
