I met me page challenge this year for reading! 

Last year I fell short by about 2,000 pages (or 4 to 6 books), of my 25,000 page total.

This year 72 books later (not counting the things I read to the kids), I have read 25,909 pages........ 

Edit: I never put in what my goal was, just what my total was.

Do you just set up the page challenge for fun or is it a bookclub thing you do?
I love to read but haven't picked up a book since at least the summer. I have a book in my car but I've just never read it yet and its about 6 months old.
Congrats on meeting your challenge.

-in bed before I fall asleep at night
-when I hide in the bathtub in the evenings
-at the dining-room table in the morning with my coffee (while the little ones eat)
-in the car while I am waiting for kids at something
-in the waiting room at the Doctors
-whenever I decide to ignore my housework
-in the backyard when I am *watching* the kids play
-sometimes at the fire house during a meeting/training.... esp. if John is sitting next tome, them I am pretty much invisible to all

There is a "book group" on CafeMom that I belong to. We can set challenges for fun, they offer challenges, nothing we are obligated to do. I think we have to visit the site once a month, with the exception of June/July/August when they change that, so we can chase our kids around.
