READ YOUR OWN BOOKS READ-A-THON--WRAP UP POST

I SO love read-a-thons, but every time I participate in one, I only manage to completely finish one book.  Well, let me take that back, I think I may have finished two before! Anyway, I'm hoping someday that I will be able to read as others do, like Lydia at The Lost Entwife, who read a phenomenal 9 BOOKS for this one! Maybe my attention span is not up to par and/or I'm an incredibly slow reader.  I know on Friday, my sons were less than cooperative and very distracting.  Then, I was out and about on Saturday for around 5 hours...shopping at a library sale and lunching with Mom.  I keep saying I'm going to get a hotel room  where I'll have no distractions! I just may treat myself since the next Dewey's 24 hour Read-a-Thon is close to my birthday.  A hotel room as a treat for my birthday...yay! It sounds totally dreamy to me. =O)

Anyway, here is what I read this weekend:

Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen--completed (367 pages)
Under the Dome by Stephen King--read a total of 333 pages out of 1074 pages

Total pages read:  700
Total hours spent reading:  I have no earthly idea...LOL!

I really enjoyed doing the read-a-thon, despite the less than stellar performance on my part.  Any excuse to sit and read for long periods of time is always fun for me.  I'd like to thank Monica at Bibliophilic Book Blog for hosting such an awesome event.  I hope she will do it again some time soon!

Stay tuned next week for the From Dusk Till Dawn Read-A-Thon, August 25 at 8pm through August 29 at 8am! Jenn should be posting more information about it soon.  Click on the badge to go to her blog.  I can't wait! =O)

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!

This blog is Award Free. I appreciate your thinking of me for an award, but please know that your comments are my award. Thank you!

  1. good job on the read-a-thon. i have yet to partake in one because i'd feel too guilty (and exhausted) to spend all that time reading.

    as for your books, i recently listened to 'under the dome' and enjoyed it. hope you like it too.

  2. Having a hotel room and just using it for reading, sounds heavenly :)
