24 hour read-a-thon--MY Official Wrap-Up Post

So...after falling asleep early Sunday morning (my read-a-thon was to continue until 4:00pm due to starting 9 hours late), I decided to continue my read-a-thon indefinitely until I finished The Dark Divine.  Mission accomplished!

I still feel I had a less than spectacular finish again this read-a-thon, but seeing how I generally only finish one, maybe two, books a week, I think I did okay.

Books read:  Hush by Kate White, The Dark Divine by Bree Despain

Books started:  Live a Life You Love by Dr. Susan Biali, M.D.

Pages read: 636

Not really sure how many total hours I spent reading...it's all a blur!

I won one read-a-thon giveaway:  My prize is a galley of Scarlet Contessa by Jeanne Kalogridis (I love her writing!)

In hindsight, I'm not entirely disappointed with the outcome this time.  However, I am hoping next time that I will not have any prior obligations or used book sales =O) to keep me from starting on time.  I'm looking forward to it again in the fall or if anyone else decides to have one between now and then!

I apologize for word verification, but I turned it off and had close to 50 spam comments within 12 hours (nobody has time for that) so I had to turn it back on. Sorry!

  5. Excellent point about the number of books you normally read. I almost never read one book in a day so if I only got that many done, it would be a success.
