How many books over 500 pages will you read in the next 9 months challenge

I have a few of these books that I want to read this year. Making this challenge will prompt me to get around to doing so. It might also prompt you to read some of those door stoppers laying around the house.

If so, list here through the end of the year. Just the title, author and # of pages is fine. I think I can manage to have a small prize at the end of the year for:

1 - the most books read
2 - the longest book read

Thanks for trying out this challenge. It runs from April 1st through December 31st.

I guess I was confused as you have it in the Release Challenge forum instead of the Book Talk forum where the reading challenges usually are. Thanks.

over on librarything shows I have ~30 books that are 512 - 780 pages long.

I'm not sure how many will get read in 2017, as I double them up with other reading challenges. At least 3 are Canadian Authors, so those are likely.
