From Friday 29 May at 12.01 am (in your local time zone) you start keeping track of how many pages you read until Sunday 31 May 2020 at 11.59 pm. In the May 2020 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 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.

Thank you all for taking part, I hope you all had fun doing it. I lost access to my microsoft office over the weekend and thanks to strict budgeting, I won't be getting it back for a while. So totalling your final numbers may take slightly longer. Instead of coming back every day to take down numbers, I will wait and write them down, (maybe next week, I'm not sure) when I'm ready to give the final number.
