Trinity This is a group challenge where we all try to get to 250,000 pages. This challenge starts on August 1st, and then goes on until we reach 250,000 pages. After that we will increase our goal to another 250,000 and then again after we complete that.

message 5: by Jonel (new)

Jonel Hey Katie, I think the current total should be a running tally of the entire groups pages (Trinity, correct me if I just made that up). So now we're at:

Current total: 1260pgs


Amber (amberinbookland) (amberinbookland) current total: 558


message 7: by Jonel (new)

Jonel Ok. I'm super confused..... Is this a group or individual marathon?


Amber (amberinbookland) (amberinbookland) yea same I'm confused lol


message 9: by Jonel (new)

Jonel When I read the instruction/blurb the 'we' made me think group. I guess we'll just need to wait for clarification.


message 10: by Trinity (new)

Trinity Hi everyone, sorry! This is a group, not an individual challenge. So all the totals should add up to the previous post. You were correct, Jonel. :)


message 11: by Jonel (last edited Aug 03, 2014 05:46PM) (new)

Jonel ok, brilliant. I'm glad we got this sorted out early in the month.

So I think that means that our current group total is 1260pgs + 558pgs (Amber's total)

Current total: 1818pgs


Amber (amberinbookland) (amberinbookland) so from now on we each add our pages to 1818? :)


message 13: by Jonel (new)

Jonel Amber wrote: "so from now on we each add our pages to 1818? :)"

Or whatever the current total is. Add it to the total in the post before you.

ie// next post is 1818+222 = 2040

post after 2040+365 = 2405

etc, etc, etc


message 14: by Trinity (new)

Trinity Current Total: 1,484 Pages

Amber, you have to post the book you read, along with the day you finished it, the rating and the pages.
