Since you had fun last year, we decided to do it again. Special thanks to Romance Readers Reading Challenges’ for letting us use their Million Page Run as template. There are quite a few groups that do something similar, but we like theirs the best.

This thread will open soon after we reach Our First Million pages for 2015. Until then, this thread will be frozen.


How It Works:
Anyone may join this challenge. To participate, all you need to have are two things--a book you’ve recently finished reading and the page count of that book.

Begin by posting the number of pages of a book you just finished. To continue, anybody who has finished a book since January 1st (regardless of start date), and has not posted it in our first million thread, may post their book title, and taking the previous total, add the total pages of the books.

Examples:

Some Tips:
1. Please post the book cover, date read, and page number of your book(s).
    If you need help, see Add a Bookcover Link.
2. Please double check your post total.
3. For those newly joining the page count, there is no need to post your backdated books. Just keep a tally from the point you join onward.
4. The original intent was for everyone to post page counts for just one to two books at a time to keep an up-to-date running tally, but a larger page dump for more books is okay. Just please DON’T wait until the end of the year.
5. Remember to click “Refresh,” just in case someone posted at the same time as you did.
6. If you're at the bottom of a page, make sure you don’t need to hit “Next.” Each GRs thread page holds 50 posts. If you see the person above you is at a 50 increment number, make sure you don’t need to go to the next page.
7. Please use the page numbers of the edition you read.
8. There are no page length or genre restrictions.
9. For audiobook conversion, use the most popular page length, or go to Edge Studio and convert the hours and minutes.
10. Again, please double check your post total.
11. Start date May 1st, 2015!
