From Friday November 27th at 12.01am (in your local time zone), you start keeping track of how many pages you read until Sunday November 28th at 11.59pm. In November Read-a-thon thread you will post your progress, telling everyone what you're reading and how many pages. Then all readers' totals will be tallied on the Monday to reach the goal of 20,000 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:) Once the thread is posted in Book Chat, make sure reply to the event or put your name on the thread if you would like to be included. If you simply stumble onto the thread, then please, join in!
As for the last read-a-thons, better to keep track of all numbers, we change the first post we write in the discussion, so each of us has only one and not 2000 as before!!!!
*An easy way to keep track is using the Currently Reading feature on Goodreads, entering your page number at the end of each day.
**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. If you respond 'Yes” to the event invitation , please don't forget to list totals in February Read-a-thon thread in Bookchat. Don't forget to post your totals of daily or full week end tally on the thread.
