Goodreads 2017 Reading Challenge

Goal: 60 books

Pages Read 2017 Challenge

Goal: 17,000 pages (Bonsai)

Current: 11,153 pages

This challenge is hosted by Gina @ Book Dragon’s Lair. Because Goodreads does not take the length of books into account, I want to keep track of the number of pages I read. This also lets me keep track of pages read even when I do not read the entire book.
