    Howdy everyone!

    Welcome to the reading challenge that will hopefully help you replacing PMO urges with reading books you like.

    The rules are :

    Each day, you announce here how many pages of your book you plan to read, even if it's only one page. On the evening you edit your previous message with "reading complete" if you've read all pages or "did not complete" if you haven't.


    To make this into an actual challenge, with each successful day you can increase your score, for instance if you've had 5 successful days already this month, you can write 5/30. I will very shortly add ranks etc to this challenge!

    Good luck!

    4 years ago I used this accountability system on Habitica and I read around 7 books, even if I wasn't much of a reader before.

    Still, I haven't read an entire book in a long time so let's get back to it!

    Today I will read 10 pages of la Payback's a witch by Lana Harper.

    Edit : challenge completed for the day :emoji_books:

    I really like your idea of gradually increasing the number of pages per day. I'll do it as well. @frosties

    Yeah, when I first did this kind of challenge a few years back, I couldn't read To Kill A Mockingbird easily because English isn't my language (I'm French) so I used to read only 1-2 pages a day and it was a challenge but soon enough I finished the book and now I really know what baby steps means haha

    3 pages is more than 0, the important thing is consistency and you read, that's good!

    I have to find another book to read now, 10 pages today :)
    That way I don't take a big risk, if I find I don't like the book, 10 pages is still manageable.
