if you read a short story of considerable length (say 50 pages or so), would add that to your goodreads list as read? or is that cheating?

Do it but with Little Golden Books and report back.

Depends if it's been published as a standalone book.

I only add short stories collections and only if I read the full thing. However, you can do whatever the fuck you want, nobody cares.

Cheating to whom and about what? Reading is not a competition nor an exercise in quantity, jeez

What is this fucking mindset. The point of reading books isn't to say "I read this many books". It's to learn new things and to have fun. You should read something if you'll get something good out of it. It doesn't matter if you add it to your goodreads or not. There's not cheating in reading.

rate your music, autists either force themselfes to listen to 5 albums a day or fake their rating to make their music listening peen bigger

Sure it counts, it counts as fifty pages read. But counting your pages slows down your enjoyment. Why make a pleasure into a job?

That sounds incredibly uncomfortable, I can and often do just repeat the same song or two/three songs on loop all day if I can.

It's a self-imposed challenge. The only rule-set is to read x amount by the end of the year, whether a 50 book counts or not is entirely up to you. No one gives a shit about what you read, so quit being a fag and just read my book.
