FALL CATCH-UP READ-A-THON WRAP UP

Well, the fun is over. *sob*  I did not accomplish as much reading as I would have hoped.  As usual, life got in the way.  I was doing pretty well and then the weekend kind of went down the drain.  I've got a lot of personal stuff going on right now and it was hard to concentrate on reading.  Here is my sad readathon accomplishments:

I read 75 pages of Vampire Academy--Richelle Mead (I was not planning on reading this for the read-a-thon, but I couldn't put it down!).

I read 102 pages of Labyrinth--Kate Mosse (for my TuesBookTalk chat on Twitter)

I finished The Queen's Pawn--Christy English.

Started Dracula in Love--Karen Essex on Friday...have read 100 pages =O(

I will say that the read-a-thon was a success though because of all the lovely participants.  It really seemed like everyone was having fun and some even got a lot of reading done (you know who you are).  I also enjoyed the mini-challenge where read-a-thoners talked about a banned book they have read.  It's interesting to find out what other people think about the banned books issue.  Thank you to all who participated and helping me to make this a successful event.  I'm thinking of making this a seasonal read-a-thon (Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer), but haven't decided yet.  I know I will have this one again next year, if nothing else. 

If you would like to do a wrap up post and link here, feel free.  The linky is below.  In regards to the giveaways, I will announce the winners by the end of the week.  If I can locate an email address, I will email the winners.

Edit:  I was remiss in neglecting to thank Charlie Courtland for generously donating copies of her books for the mini-challenge giveaway and for joining us for the read-a-thon.  You rock, Charlie!

Now it's time to look forward to Dewey's 24 Hour Read-A-Thon and the Halloween Read-A-Thon and the fun festivities of Halloween!
