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!1

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!0
