Attention all readers!

Chatterbox: Blab About Books

The Ultimate Reading Race
Attention all readers!...

Attention all readers! As a part of the revive BaB movement, I decided it was my job to create another BaB thread. 

So, introducing the Ultimate CBer Reading Race! Here's how it will work:

Everyone who wants to participate, leave a comment on this thread. Everyone has to have entered by September 1st. I will possibly accept latecomers if you beg and plead enough. 

Then, from September 2nd - September 20th, everyone has to read as many pages as possible! Real books only, please, not picture books or pages with gargantuan fonts. The person who has read the most pages by the end date is the winner! Then they set the next deadline, and we continue on in this fashion.

Remember, you are on the honor system here! No saying that you read 7,000 pages when you really read 100. I trust my fellow CBers to be honest. We can also use this thread to discuss what books we are reading and how long those books are. 

I really hope this takes off. On an unrelated note, this is the first thread I've ever made on BaB.

Anyway, good luck, and happy racing!

So, I kind of forgot to track my page counts and am kind of just estimating here...

each  Wings of Fire books is about 300 pages, and I read 3 of them, so that's about 900 pages.

I read the second half of Throne of Glass, which is about 150 pages.

So in total, I read abooouuut 1,150 pages.

Everyone else, post your totals! so far PygmyOwl is in the lead. I should probably put a deadline on result posting. BUt we'll figure that out later.

Since I last posted, I've read Watch Us Rise (368 pages), Graceling (471 pages), and Bitterblue (576 pages). That, added to the 685 pages I posted last time (A Wrinkle in Time and The Candymakers), totals to 2100 pages!

(I had to look these up on Goodreads to find the page totals XD)
