Read-A-Thon - 2 days away
Here is the list as of now:
The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka (54 Pages)
Samuel the Seeker by Upton Sinclair (194 Pages)
Fanny Hill: Memoirs Of A Woman of Pleasure by John Cleland (176 Pages)
A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett (208 Pages)
The Moneychangers by Upton Sinclair (206 Pages)
At the Mountain of Madness by H.P. Lovecraft (224)
My estimation is about an 8 hour day of reading. I am hoping to read them all, but if not, at least 4 of them.

I also have a new long term goal. On Goodreads.com there is a group that was based on someone on another board wanting to read 1 million pages in their lifetime. Very grand goal. On the group, we have to start with this year, but I've been keeping track for a few years now. I won't count all the books I read as a young woman, but as far as I've been keeping track I've read (from 2004) to date I've read 69,995 pages.
This year has been low because I really got into the audio books. Only 930,005 pages to go. To even have a chance at it, I'll have to read a minimum of 25,000 pages a year. That rounds out to about 83 books a year for 37 years. LOL!
