Please let me know how many pages you read this month! When this group started on Shelfari many years ago, pages counted made it stand out compared to many groups. It was well received and numbers were quite high. Since moving to Goodreads, the numbers have dropped dramatically. Yes, we have fewer members but only a handful participate in the pages counted, if we're lucky. If you would prefer, I will get rid of this feature starting 2018 (I will finish out this year). Please let me know your thoughts.

I stopped tracking pages a couple of years before Shelfari shut down. But when I mentioned it at the time, MANY members expressed how much they enjoyed this aspect of the group.

I use this group as my primary place to keep track of my reading; but beyond that I mainly like the "What are you reading?" to share reviews. I've notice lately that there are very few participants there as well -- last month the two of us accounted for almost all the reviews (you had twelve, I had seven, and there were two others with two each).

Terris | 536 comments I like this thread to keep track of my numbers, but I have gotten off-track in posting my reviews. I'll try to get back to it -- you two have inspired me!! :)

Linda C (libladynylindac) | 219 comments I use this group to track pages and have gotten away from adding reviews because I have so many places I need to enter info each time I finish a book and was trying to cut back.

I got behind when school started due to starting a new full time job. I do like the feature but will understand if you feel there is not enough participation to warrant it. Hopefully I am caught up for now.
