    Thanks for adding me, Chyntuck. :) Since signing up, I have reviewed 5 stories, with a total of 1936 words.

    Just one procedural question. Say you review a story during the marathon, and then its author updates it again during the month of July, and then you review the updated portion. I'm guessing you may then (a) add those words to your word count but (b) keep the story count the same as it was? Just checking. :)

    Not getting on line as often as I would like, but hopefully soon I can really hit the list of stories I've been trying to get to. Here is the total for me so far:

    10 stories, 2,800 words.

    Totals updated :) I started reading a new series today and I'm hoping to post a few reviews tonight or tomorrow.
    We're counting reviews, not stories -- otherwise this challenge would be encouraging people to review only one-shots. If an author updates 4 times during the month and you review each update separately, it counts as 4 reviews. If the author updates 4 times, and you post a review of updates 1 & 2 in the middle of the month, then a review of updates 3 & 4 later in the month, it counts as 2 reviews. Does that make sense?

    Yes, that makes perfect sense—thanks for clarifying.

    I did only two more today but one was a very long one (or at least long by my standards). Total: 27 reviews, 5914 words.

    Now I'm going to have dinner, and then I'm going to binge-read the fic I started yesterday :)

    Five more reviewed today for a total of 17 reviews, 4,848 words.

    I love this idea for a challenge and I especially love going back into the deeper pages to uncover jewels that I had previously missed. @};-

    Three more reviews posted today. New totals: 34 reviews, 7368 words.

    I've already managed to read and review two-thirds of the stories I was planning to for this month. Yeah, it was the Big Catch-Up Plan™. If I keep this up I'm even going to manage to read an epic that's been on my list for years.

    WarmNyota_SweetAyesha The way you're going you'll crack 100 reviews in a month :eek:

    DARTH_MU :( If you remember which fics you reviewed though, it shouldn't be too difficult to figure out your word count -- the list of fics that had any activity at all in July is just a few pages.
