Reading Challenges 2010, Part One

The two challenges that I always impose on myself and I have been unable to find hosted anywhere are the 50 Book Challenge and the 15000 Page Challenge.  I do both because I could easily hit the 50 Book challenge with graphic novels and never read anything of substance. So how did I do last year, success on both counts.

15000 Page Challenge

Excluding the two audio books I totaled out at 18323 pages read.  This also excludes unfinished books.
 
18323 / 15000 Pages

 

So by my calculations that puts me over for each of these challenges. Rock!

Reading Challenges 2010: 1500 Pages

My Challenges Icon

15000 pages is my minimum basic page count every year. Last year I just made it this year I have already made it. Mostly thanks to Stephen King’s inability to write anything short and to the point. But here is the total so far.
