"Let's see how many pages the group reads this year! Any books read in 2018 count so if you have read it this year it counts! Post either the cover or title link of the book and the number of pages for the edition you read. If it's an audiobook just put what the page count would have been for the physical copy. Add your total to the previous total from the above users post. This is collective of the whole group though if you would like to keep up with your own total or do things like linking to your review that is perfectly fine"

This challenge was created by Nikki in 2017 and it has been requested that we do it again for 2018. Since the year is already halfway through, let's set the challenge to 500,000 pages read as a group total. If you would like to participate, just put your numbers in and feel free to refer to last year's posts. Happy reading!

Trina  (trinanycolbrown) TOTALS from my goodreads year-in-books count so far:

I read 37,519 pages across 118 books (book link below)

Should I list the books individually and the page counts?

Wow that's amazing! Do you have a set reading challenge for this year?

I think how you linked yours is fine. We can still see the individual books through the link. I feel like it's mostly helpful to have a link so that the rest of us can browse new book titles to check out. :)

You're very kind, thank you. I absolutely love ebooks, audiobooks and hardbacks. I rotate between them. I like that I can start reading a book on my Kindle and pick up where I left off in the car, then back to print when I get home.

Yes, my reading challenge was 100. I've been on goodreads for many years but it's my first year participating fully on the site. I'm absolutely hooked and glad I found you guys!

I'm currently going through my reading journals to input my books for previous years as well:-) I'm such a geek, I know:-)

Siddhant Nath (yoyopandaking) Well I honestly don't feel like writing the names of all the books I've read since January 1st this year. What I can say is that yesterday, I began the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan.

4 million words. Will update once I finish it.

Welcome Karen! I totally agree, I love lists. That's part of why I'm so addicted to Goodreads. I like being able to sort my books read and keep track of all the book recommendations I've gotten over the years. Happy reading!

Kandice I get a little irritated with the way GR keeps track of "pages" for audio books. The Cabin at the End of the World counts as ten. Ten!
