Here's the place where it all starts!

To qualify for the drawing, you need to complete at least five books of 150 pages or more. The only exception is if you are reading some epics, in which case we will accept 1000 pages in completed books (sorry, no credit if you haven't made it to the last page) [note: please only ask for the entry based on pages if it's past the 15th of the month and you know you won't have time to get to five books--thanks.]

While setting an impossible goal can be a great challenge, just make sure you aren't setting it so high that you can't reach it and get an entry in the drawing. There's nothing keeping you from reading extra books once you reach your goal!

Here are some possible levels:

Taking the first step: 5 books
Crossing the street: 6-10 books
Walking to work: 11-15 books
5K: 16-20 books
Half-marathon: 21-24
Marathon: 25+ books

Various notes

Books must be 150 pages or more to count. If you are reading an audiobook or an ebook and cannot find a page count, you may claim the paperback or hardback page count. Otherwise we will go by the page count of your specific edition.
