Read-a-thon #2 is here!! (Depending on your time zone...)

As always, this is your official progress post. Use it to share your progress with the group and offer encouragement to your fellow read-a-thonners.

Tell us...
How many pages have you read?
How many books have you read?
What are you reading now?
What have you finished reading?


As with all our read-a-thons, we want to remind participants that the idea is to read, read, read. Read as much as you can and have as much fun as you can doing it. Don't make reading a job or a chore. Don't let the progress of others intimidate or discourage you. Everyone reads at their own pace and we're here to have fun. Go on! Get started! Read and enjoy!

Rachel A. (abyssallibrarian) | 2634 comments I'm a bit confused about whether books that I started before the read-a-thon would count. I had 100 pages left of Spinning Silver by the time the read-a-thon started, and I finished that off today. I'm not counting it for the team challenge, but am I safe to assume it can count for everything else?

How many pages have you read?
7 September: 100 pages of Spinning Silver + 84 pages of Quiver
8 September: 205 pages to finish Quiver
9 September: 131 pages of Darius the Great Is Not Okay
10 September: 185 pages to finish Darius the Great Is Not Okay
11 September: 120 pages of Textrovert
12 September: 115 pages to finish Textrovert + 51 pages of A Mother's Reckoning: Living in the Aftermath of Tragedy (or 71, if you include the 20 pages of preface that don't seem to be included in the Goodreads page count)
13 September: 112 pages of A Mother's Reckoning: Living in the Aftermath of Tragedy
14 September: 141 pages to finish off A Mother's Reckoning: Living in the Aftermath of Tragedy and 55 pages of That's Not What Happened
15 September: 274 pages to finish That's Not What Happened + 46 pages of The Truth About Happily Ever After
Total: 1619 (or 1639, including the preface of A Mother's Reckoning: Living in the Aftermath of Tragedy)

How many pages have you read?:1619 (or 1639, including the preface of A Mother's Reckoning: Living in the Aftermath of Tragedy)
How many books have you read?: 6 (one started before the read-a-thon)
What are you reading now?:The Truth About Happily Ever After
What have you finished reading?: Spinning Silver (started before the read-a-thon, but last 100 pages read on Day 1), Quiver, Darius the Great Is Not Okay, Textrovert, A Mother's Reckoning: Living in the Aftermath of Tragedy, That's Not What Happened

Yes, Rachel, you can count pages. Progress should allow for all pages read :)

Great, thanks! I thought that made the most sense, but wanted to be sure.

Laura, can a book started before the read-a-thon count toward the Individual Quest? I didn't see anything in the rules to exclude it.

I think we should stick to the same rule as the team challenges, especially since there’s a competition component this time around. So 125 pages remaining. Unless it’s a short story for the rat prompt.
