There will be more details on that as the end approaches, but you'll probably be PMing - not posting - your total page count. :)

Am I allowed to make a book review about a book that I have already read before the contest?

If this was the ultimate plan for this reading competition, It not only failed, but worked in reverse in my case.

What about books that are smaller? I have a copy of House by Ted Dekker that is about seven inches tall, and 365 pages or so. Would it be better to cut the ammount of pages in half to accommodate for the different size?

Actually, I think that's about the number of pages the regular version has too (the smaller type makes up for it). So, just go with the number of pages in whatever copy you have. :)

I, like Darcie, have parenting responsibilities, and most of my reading is done before bedtime of kid's picture books. . . But I do listen to Audio Books in the car every day driving to and from work and taking my daughter places. Any chance those books would count? :-k

For this contest, audiobooks will not count, unless you read the words while listening.
