Chicks Together Group Challenge III
July 1, 2017 - September 30, 2017

We read 76,082 pages in the Second Chicks Together Group Challenge of 2017. Let's try to beat that number in this challenge.

If you want to join in, when you finish a book, ebook or audiobook between July 1st and September 30th, post the title and the number of pages followed by the new group total.

If reading an ebook or audiobook, you may use the page number from the hardback version of the book.
