From Friday April 27th, 2018 (in your local time zone), you start keeping track of how many pages you read until Sunday April 29th, 2018 11.59pm. In here you will post your progress, telling everyone what you're reading and how many pages. Then all readers' totals will be tallied on the Monday to reach the goal of 20,000 pages - last time we didn't make it!!!! This is a relaxed read-a-thon; it doesn't matter if you read 20 pages or 100, it also doesn't matter if we reach our goal, it's just having fun doing what you would normally be doing anyway:)

Make sure to put your name if you would like to be included. If you simply stumble onto the thread, then please, join in!
As for the last read-a-thon, better to keep track of all numbers, we change the first post we write in the discussion, so each of us has only one and not 2000 as before!!!!

*An easy way to keep track is using the Currently Reading feature on Goodreads, entering your page number at the end of each day.

**For those who read by eReader, take the page number which shows for paperback/hardcover here on Goodreads for your total.Calculate by percentage to work out your page number read.

***For audio listeners, check out how many pages the book has on Goodreads, then divide that number by how many CDs or hours it is to give you an idea of pages per time.

Beth | 406 comments I was doing Dewey's readathon so I didn't have a chance to record here separately, but I read:
Saturday:
The World's Wife 76 pages
Bakkhai 160 pgs
Spin 206 pgs so far
The Lions of Al-Rassan 372 pgs so far
The Hunting of the Snark 27 pgs (audio)

Sunday:
The Lathe of Heaven 176 pgs
Lamia 26 pgs (ebook, Project Gutenberg)

(I didn't read on Friday)

I'm not entirely sure what the breakdown is between Saturday/Sunday (Dewey's Readathon was 5am-5am my time, which makes it hard to *also* keep track of this one where the 3-day period is according to local time zone.
