message 1: by Elisa (new)

Elisa (elisahansen) I actually started keeping track of pagecounts of all the books I read starting in August of 2008. That's also around the time when I really started using goodreads. I've since added as many books as I can remember ever reading to my goodreads profile, but I never went back to add them to this page count list list. Maybe I will get around to that soon.
The first 72 of this list are in backwards order because I copy and pasted it from my goodreads profile in September 2009. Since then, I've added books as I've read them to the bottom of the list, so #73 and on are at least in the right order :)
