2016 Let’s Turn Pages

February 8, 2016

2016 LET’S TURN PAGES CHALLENGE
From: Goodreads 2016 Reading Challenges Group
Duration: January 1 – December 31, 2016

This challenge is back by popular demand this year! 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!
