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'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!


Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. It means so much.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. Good job! I wanted to join this one but found out about it a bit to time :) Congrats on the win! I have that book on my wish list.

  2. Way to commit! :) Hope you enjoyed your time and your books!

  3. You did a great job! It was fun wasn't it!

  4. Muse--hope you can participate next time!

    Sheila--I enjoyed it!

    cherylbaryl--Thanks! was great fun!

  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.
