Johnni Quest (johnniquest) | 1226 comments Welcome to our week long read-a-thon. That's right, at Hooked on Books we've decided that there aren't enough hours in a day, or days in a week, so our week long read-a-thons run for 8 days! Each participant reads from 12:01am on Saturday to 11:59pm on the following Saturday in their local time zone.

To sign up simply start yourself a post to track what you've read during the read-a-thon. Edit your post throughout the read-a-thon to let everyone know which books you've read & your total number of pages.

Hi Nancy :) No the tbr is merely a guide for yourself, so feel free to post or not to post one. I will inevitably be switching mine up as the week progresses.

Katz Nancy from NJ (nancyk18) Thanks so much Danni - I hope that's your name since they don't always fill in full names.

I really dislike the use of percentages on Kindle. How do you convert this if there is no listing of the number of pages?

Thanks for your help.

No problem :) and yes it is.

I just write 10% read etc. or, you could look for another edition of your book on Goodreads or Amazon that has the page number listed. Divide the page number by 100 and then x this by the number of the percentage you are on to give yourself a rough estimate of your page number. I hope this helps :)

Hi Nancy, I have a Kindle as well. There are a couple of techniques that I use to determine the page count.
1. When you are in the book on the Kindle, tap the menu (the vertical dots), then tap on About This Book, which, for some of the books gives a page count. If the information is not there, then I do exactly what Dannii suggests.

Hey, Nancy! Here's what I do: I calculate the number of pages based on the percentage I've read and the number of pages total (from another edition). I usually use the paperback edition, since I've noticed the number of pages on Kindle editions tend to be pretty close to the paperback ones.
