After you guys smashing it in 2016 by achieving our goal of 1,5000,000 I've decided to up the number to 1,750,000 for 2017. I'm pretty confident that this figure can be reached and hopefully it will be fun to see if it's possible.

It would be great if you can add each book read as you go along and having some librarians in our midst means numbers can be kept an eye on too. But whatever works for you is fine. Thank you again to those of you who number watch and keep an eye on totals. I'm very grateful.

Good luck everyone and happy reading!

message 21: by Terri Wino (new)

Terri Wino (TerriWino) | 2044 comments I believe Amber's addition of her total pages was off by 10, so I think our current total should be
4,919

However, Willowblue, was 100 the total pages of the book or you read 100 pages of it so far? Because I think we're trying to stick to the guideline of not adding pages to the total until you finish a book. So I just wanted to make sureI added yours in correctly. :)

Thanks, Terri. Much appreciated. :)

Yes, just totals please everyone when your books are read. Makes it easier all round. We're off to a good start!


message 23: by Terri Wino (new)

Terri Wino (TerriWino) | 2044 comments I think I understand now that Willowblue started the book in 2016 and finished it by reading the final 100 pages in 2017. So we're at:
4,919 pages

Nope. I recalculated and the five books I read did indeed come out to a total # of 1,349.

Terri Wino (TerriWino) | 2044 comments Yes, Amber, but you listed 1,339 as your total pages read in your original post instead of the actual total of 1,349. So our number is currently accurate when I corrected the total with the missing 10 pages. :)
