    Ooh, good question I hadn't thought of that :p Just copy-paste your review in the word counter, it'll tell you how many words it is. That's how I get it to tell me if emojis count or not, though I haven't figured out the answer, I just take its word for it!

    I've done 23 reviews for a total of 7533 words. Hoping to break 10K words before the end of the month! I love this challenge. It motivates me to get on top of the things I've been meaning to read.

    @WarmNyota_SweetAyesha Now your challenge is to break 150 by the end of the month :p

    @divapilot Same here. July 2017 is turning into the Great Read and Review Catch-Up™.

    And three more for me between yesterday and today! 47 reviews, 10504 words.

    And three more for me too! Total 50 reviews, 11033 words.

    I still have a few stories on my list that I was planning to catch up with this month, I hope I can read them over the weekend. Then there's this one VERY long epic that I haven't touched yet, but that's my project for August.

    I'm at 9,640 words and 28 reviews. I want to crack 10,000 words and I think I can do it in the next day or two! Plus I get the joy of going back and finding those gems that I should have reviewed so long ago. :D

    Edit - Just hit my goal of 10,000 words! (that's 10,074 to be exact, and 35 reviews). So anything I do now is icing on the cake.

    Thanks for this challenge. You've really helped to get these boards moving. Hopefully we can run it again and more people will join.

    SInce my last update I've done five more reviews for a total of 15, and 1906 more words for a total of 5474. It's been slower for me than anticipated this month, but I still appreciate the opportunity to stay accountable. :)

    I did only one more today, but it involved catching up on 40-odd chapters of a fic. Total 51 reviews, 11503 words.

    And now, off to catch up on another 20-odd chapters of another fic on which I'd fallen behind.

    EDIT: W00t @divapilot, just saw your edit! =D=

    I still have 16 stories on my list and I doubt I'll manage to read and review them all by Tuesday night (especially since one of them is a VERY long epic I haven't even touched yet) but I did catch up on 40 stories already, so I'm reasonably happy with myself.

    Oh, and all the totals have been updated.

    Four more reviews today, of which one was for an epic I'd abandoned mid-way a while back, but now I'm all caught up! Total: 55 reviews, 12192 words.

    I have had health distractions, and after three reviews had not the slightest interest in this.

    Although I got a fourth review in, it was incidental, and I haven't counted words.

    Formally pulling out of this challenge.

    [:D] Health distractions are the absolute ickiest! Hopefully when we run this again, [face_batting] things will be less chaotic. @};-

    I saw you mention your health issues in the social thread @Sith-I-5, it sounded like a very unpleasant experience. I hope you're feeling better now @};-
