Total page count:

Shall we aim for 20000 pages?


This is a relaxed read-a-thon; it doesn't matter if you read 20 pages or 100, it also doesn't matter if we reach our goal, it's just having fun doing what you would normally be doing anyway:)



For those who read by eReader, take the page number which shows for paperback/hardcover here on Goodreads for your total. Calculate by percentage to work out your page number read.

For audio listeners, check out how many pages the book has on Goodreads, then divide that number by how many CDs or hours it is to give you an idea of pages per time

Wow, I just finished Neverwhere and I am blown away. This book really scared me, but it also gripped me where I fell in love with all the characters, and just couldn't put the book down! These totals include finishing this book, and then starting The Tutor, which will hopefully calm me down a bit :)
