From Friday 19th April 2019 at 12.01am (in your local time zone) you start keeping track of how many pages you read until Monday 22nd April 2019 at 11.59pm. In the Easter 2019 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 throughout the week 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 April Read-a-thon 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 understand that everyone in this group is from all over the world and celebrate religious holidays differently. I've only named this the Easter readathon because it's taking place over the Easter weekend. I do not intend to offend, I've only called it that because we are doing two readathons in April.

Since I'm setting this up earlier in the week than normal, it may take longer to post your name on the main list, don't worry though because once you make your post in this thread, consider yourself signed up.
