    I love it!

    My only problem with this challenge is that I tend to read the short books within a few days....I can read all the way through Prisoner of Azkaban in 5 days (maybe two weeks if I'm working)! It would be impossible to lose 26lbs in that amount of time!

    Hi :)

    This challenge is related to the number of pages = number of pounds, with no time limit - in other words, it's just to give some variety to losing set amounts of weight.

    In theory you don't need to read the book at all whilst you do it!
