Tower Teams Read 2013 Start

Tower Teams Read 2013 hosted by Nothing But Reading Challenges.

~Tower Teams~
                                                            First to Read 2,013 Books

Goal: The first team to reach 2013 books read, wins! Then the team challenge starts over again.

When: Starts January 1, 2013 and goes until the first team reaches 2,013 books read.

How: We will take all the people who sign up and divide them equally into groups, taking into account the number of books they read in 2012, but otherwise we will be using a "ramdomizer" to assign. When you go to the sign-up thread, PLEASE INDICATE the NUMBER of BOOKS you read in 2012. (Just to even out the teams. Thanks!)

◈ Books must be >170 pages. I found several items on the Internet that say
    200 location numbers on a Kindle are equivalent to 10 - 11 pages. When NO
    hardback or paperback editions are available for reverence, covert with the
    lower number.

◈ Audio books are allowed. (For page numbers, audiobooks should be compared
    to the paper edition.)

◈ No graphic novels. (Sorry.)

◈ Any genre counts.

◈ "Re-reads" will be allowed, if it has been a year since you have read the book.
    This includes listening to the audio version, if you've already read the book. 

◈ When a team reaches 2,013, we will change the end date of the challenge. The first
    team to post - regardless of the other team eventually posting more books - wins.
    We'll check to see who places.

My goal for this challenge is to read 120 books over 170 pages.

Update April: First part of this challenge has finished but it is continuing in a second part.
