message 1: by Autumn (new)

Autumn (autumnmemory80) The challenge is to read a total of 25,000 pages for the year of 2016! Any and all books are acceptable, even audio books! When counting an audio book, simply go to the main book posted and see how many pages there are and count those. This is all on an honesty based system, and I will not be policing you! ;) What I did when I have done this challenge before is set up a thread for myself and added to it by editing the comment throughout the year and adding to my number of pages. It does not have to just be thriller books, all book are accepted! I will literally read cookbooks like books, so I would count that then!

Rules:

1. Any book started on or after Jan 1, 2016 and completed by Dec 31, 2016 counts.

2. Audio books do count :-)

3. You are on the honor code to keep track of your count of pages read in 2016.

4. Any type of book will count... thriller, romance, children's, YA, you name it - it counts!

Enjoy!

Good luck! :)

Amber I read a lot of children's books for work and to my niece, so my number of books read is, in my opinion, somewhat misleading. I much prefer to focus on the number of pages read.
