Wow. I can’t say much more than that. As of right now, we have read 67,704 pages between all three participating forums! At this rate, we will have no problem smashing up the records for every past year.
If you haven’t joined the Read-a-Thon yet, there is still a little time to sign up and get going! Just visit the sign up page for more information. (And why wouldn’t you sign up? We have prizes!)
Also, we have t-shirts for this year! We’re thrilled to be able to keep the same pricing as last year. These great shirt designs are available now for only $13.99, and that includes shipping in the US! Personally, I’m eyeing the green one. :-D
Today is the beginning of Read-a-Thon 2011! If you signed up to participate, you can start posting the books you’ve read in this thread now. Of course, if you’re participating on Holy Worlds, you can go over there and post your page counts, too.

When we heard about it, we gave the Holy Worlds teams our blessing, but it didn’t take long for the teams from both forums to wonder why we didn’t just join forces. Which we promptly did.
