Gina's (ginasgoodreads) | 2292 comments Hey everyone.

We are very happy to have reached 800+ members this month.
So we decided to make a 80,000 page challenge. You can join starting today (https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...)
You can also post your comments, questions and much more related to this challenge here. And please add the number of pages you read so we can keep a better track of whom read which books.

Enjoy.

-Mods of so you like YA?!

For the Challenge progress(view spoiler)

If there are wrong number of pages, please let me know, also if you have made progress and want me to post it you can also comment here or on the Challenge comments. The ones that have a question mark is because the number of pages haven't been posted yet.

Good luck to all :)

This challenge was meant to be active since yesterday so if it is a book that started on that date it's okay. Plus the book has to be added to a specific shelf for the challenge, only those count for the Goodreads Create Challenge.

It has to be. Team work.


message 35: by Xandra (new)

Xandra (literary-legionnaire) It's 600,000 pages for all of us combined, right? Because I'm pretty sure I can't physically read 1714 books (averaging 350 pages)... or afford it.


message 36: by Gina's (last edited May 04, 2014 12:55PM) (new)

Gina's (ginasgoodreads) | 2292 comments
Please note that the book pages started on May 2nd and this will last until we have reached 600,000 pages read. Please add the number of pages that you have read here after you have had added the books for the challenge on a special shelf on Goodreads. You can also view more details on the group home :)

Yes, so Goodreads can track down the activity on your shelf.

The 3 most common ones are: to read, currently reading and read.

When you click on the Group Home and on the Challenge you have to post a approximate number of books that you'll read for the challenge and the name of the shelf that will be created specifically for this Challenge (most of us named it 600 000 page challenge) then you click on save and you start adding the books to read for this challenge and here you post the number of pages read from May 2nd until the Challenge is over.

Feel free to ask questions.

Greetings and hopefully I was helpful.

Thank you:D

Gina's (ginasgoodreads) | 2292 comments @Riya

374 pages + 352 pages = 726 pages in total

is these 374 pages the same number that you put on the comment on your challenge or is it a new book??

Wow- math fail! Yeah- those are the same that I put in my comment for the challenge. I thought it'd be easier if I just put it all together here. Sorry for all these complications!
