Cassandra | 5832 comments LET'S TURN PAGES CHALLENGE
Duration: January 1, 2015 – December 31, 2015


We are always making goals about how many books we want to read in a year. How about we make a goal for number of pages we want to read?

1. Make a goal of number of pages you would like to read.
2. Read as many pages as you can in one year.
3. Since you probably don’t know what you want to read for the entire year, make your list as you go. (Be sure to post the number of pages in your book!)

If your edition doesn't have page numbers (such as an audiobook), use the most popular edition of the book (that's not an audiobook) to determine what the number of pages should be. Rereads will count for this challenge, but you have to read the entire book…no skimming!


Have fun with this challenge--let's turn a bunch of pages this year!

Example:
The Flight of Gemma Hardy – 447 pages
The Yard – 432 pages
Total number of pages read so far: 879 pages – Just keep adding as you go!

This challenge will be led by Cassandra.

Cassandra | 5832 comments How to Participate
1. Post here telling the challenge leader that you'd like to join the challenge. You can choose your books for the challenge at the beginning, or add them as you go. You can join a challenge at any time, as long as the challenge is still active.

2. Whenever you finish a book for the challenge, post here and let the challenge leader know so they can update your progress.

Some members choose to update their original post with their progress to keep track of their challenge more easily, but make sure to also post a new message so the challenge leader knows to go look at your original post. You can look at how other members report their progress to find a strategy that works well for you.

For more information about how challenges work, check out this thread or ask your challenge leader.

Lilac  (lilac_wales) | 867 comments My Goal is 30,000! I love these page count challenges because in 2015 I've got a lot of 1000+ page books planned so it means they count for more. :)


message 4: by Cassandra (new)

Cassandra | 5832 comments Wonderful! I'm looking forward to this challenge, since I like to read long books as well. I haven't decided what to set my goal at yet, though.

Cassandra | 5832 comments Awesome, Alissa! I've added you for 20,000 but if you would like to change your goal at any time during the year, just let me know.

Caro (karopi) | 992 comments I do not read as many pages as the rest of the people here, but still want to participate.... If is not a minimum required to participate I will start with 15,000

I've only read 16,000 this year, so 25,000 is probably going to be a stretch for me!

Good luck to you!

Sabari Ragav (upfsabari) sounds interesting...!! I'm not sure how much I'll read so let me try with 10,000!!


Theresa~OctoberLace (octoberlace) | 773 comments Does everyone know that GR has Stats on the books you log? I logged all books I've read in 2014, and the Stats say I've read 156 books with a total of 56,507 pages. The longest was Kristin Lavransdatter by Sigrid Undset with 1,168 pages.

To get your stats, go to My Books, scroll down watching the left column where your shelves are listed. Below that you'll find Tools, one of which is Stats. You can check stats on other readers books, too, assuming that they haven't locked down who can view their books.


message 27: by Erika (new)

Erika (erikarae) | 708 comments For anyone who doesn't already know this, I thought it'd be helpful: To see how many pages you've read so far this year, so you can accurately gauge how many you want to read next year, you can go to "My Books" and then click on "Stats" over on the right. Then just selected "Pages" and it will tell you. :)


Theresa~OctoberLace (octoberlace) | 773 comments Erika, we think alike! The Stats like is actually in 2 places on the My Books page - under Tools on the left as I posted and on the upper right corner as Erika mentioned.


Theresa~OctoberLace (octoberlace) | 773 comments I think I'll go with the majority and start out with a goal of 40,000 pages. I'm assuming we can always bump it up later? Right now I have 12 books over 1,000 pages on my TBR list, most of which I already own.

I figure if we share our longest books TBR, maybe we'll find some inspiration from each other.

Claire  (claire6452) | 713 comments Thanks for the information on finding how many pages we've read. I never noticed it before.

As it turns out, I have read just over 31,000 pages this year, so I guess my goal of 30,000 for next year is pretty reasonable.

Stefani - SpelingExpirt (speling_expirt) | 585 comments I'm going to go for 35,000 which is about 12,000 more than I've read this year but I've got my sights set on some large fantasy series!

575/35,000

There are 60 books on my TBR with more than 1000 pages, there is no way I'll be able to read them all next year.

However I am planning to read at least the following books from those 60:
The Stand 1153 pages
It 1090 pages
The Dark Tower 1050 pages

I'll be happy when I read at least 10 books of 800 pages or more.

Traci (traciinaz) | 69 comments I'm in. :) I read approximately 18,000 pages this year so I'll start off with 25,000. I've got some George R.R. Martin books to read so that should cover at least a couple of thousand pages. ;-)

Chloé (fullmetalclo) | 573 comments I would be down for Les Misérables. I started it when I was probably too young for it, and I got discouraged, so I didn't finish it.

Theresa~OctoberLace (octoberlace) | 773 comments Greg & Kara & Chloe,

A Buddy Read may be good for some of these long books. I own both Les Misérables and The Count of Monte Cristo in Kindle and audiobook formats. Les Misérables is 60 hrs 31 min and The Count of Monte Cristo 52 hrs 45 min in the versions I own. I'm be up for either one. When would you guys want to start a Buddy Read?
