From Friday 27th July at 12.01am (in your local time zone) you start keeping track of how many pages you read until Sunday 29th July at 11.59pm. In July 2018 Read-a-thon thread 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 10,000 pages. 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:) Once the July Read-a-thon event and thread is posted, make sure to put your name on the thread if you would like to be included. If you simply stumble onto the thread, then please, join in!

*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. Don't forget to post your totals of daily or full weekend tally on the thread.

I usually just divide the number of pages by the number of sections (usually those are about equally long). It’s not 100% accurate as some books will have shorter and longer sections but it’s good enough for me. I also tend to try to start a new audiobook on the first day, but this time that seems unlikely because I just started a ten hour one and I don’t think I’ll finish it by the end of tomorrow.
