250 Book Challenge

Recommended Posts

Its online, do you want me to link to the story, so you can see how long it is, when I post them?

 

Transfering it all to word would suck immensely, given how long they are.

 

Or, *sigh* I guess I just could not count them.

Kanaye, if it's a fanfic it doesn't count. It has to actually be a published book. If you read it from PDF it should have a page count. Hell, if fanfics were allowed I'd hit the 250 mark in about 2 weeks.

I don't think she means just fanfic, also original fiction that hasn't been published. Something like the stuff on fictionpress.com maybe?

It's not fanfiction. I don't read fanfiction.

 

His stories are completely original. He has his own website and is a gay author, which is why I'm reluctant to post the link. Don't want to get flamed for corrupting today's youth or something. *laughs*

 

I just highlighted and pasted 4 random chapters into word, 1=21, 2=18, 13=23 14=21. Times New Roman, font 12.

 

Like I said, I guess I could not count them, which would really suck since I read a lot of them.

 

Oh, and do audio books count? I listen while I crochet.

Very difficult questions Kanaye. We'll (dracodoctorwhofan and Freddyness) have to discuss it, however Freddy is currently on holiday and I can't contact her. I'll talk to her when I get the chance, until then I just suggest you don't count them.

 

I'm also not sure about the audio-books, again me and Freddy'll have to discuss it.

I think if the audiobook was just a read-aloud version of a printed book, then you should be able to count the pages of the printed work.

 

As for online books, if there's a page count it should count.

I'll join this year too~

 

Can you add up multiple volumes of manga until you get to 500 pages and have them added as one point combined? (if that makes sense XD )

Is word count instead of page count acceptable? Most of the stuff I read this day is published fiction as ebooks (and I prefer html/very idiosyncratic formatting on word, which really [....]s with page count). A novella is about 20k+ words, a novel 60k+.

 

For example, the 140k words I just read comes out to about 350 pages in paperback.

WOO HOO It has begun!! biggrin.gif

 

OH, I do have a question: I have a Lord of the Rings 'omnibus' which contains The Fellowship of The Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of The King. If I finish that does it count as one book, or 3 as they were all released seperately?

I think this time, I'll write down the books I read in my journal so I'll have it saved somewhere, instead of having to try and remember everything. I know the first book will be the fourth book in the Keys to the Kingdom series by Garth Nix, Sir Thursday. I'm loving that series, I just haven't started on the book yet. ^.^
