Summer Wrap-Up and Olympic Read-a-Thons: The End

Didn't do as well as I wanted to, but that's okay.  Here's what I read:


Olympic Read-a-Thon:

Finished Middlemarch and Graceling--711 pages + 79 pages = 790
Read The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde--75 pages
Book in a Month--45 pages
Read Beneath the Slashings by Michelle Isenhoff--173 pages
Cider House Rules--119 pages
Wolf Hall--36 pages

Total pages read--1238
My goal was 2000 pages so I finished at 62 percent...not too bad!


Summer Wrap-Up


Beneath the Slashings by Michelle Isenhoff (completed, 173 pages)
Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel (36 pages)
The Cider House Rules by John Irving (119 pages)
Book in a Month by Victoria Lynn Schmidt, Ph.D.  (45 pages)

I didn't participate in any mini-challenges or giveaways...it was a super busy week.  Hoping I'll be more present during Bout of Books 5.0 (goal post for that RAT to follow)

Don't forget about my Sit Down and Write Write-a-Thon coming next week! Details HERE or click the button.

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!

  1. Great job! I wanted to read more but only read 3 books. It's all good as long as you had fun!
    Thanks so much for participating!

  4. Michelle, you did awesome! Hope you enjoyed the books that you read!

    I stalled in the second week of the Olympic Readathon. I'm stuck on a book that I'm not enjoying very much but determined to finish. Hope I can finish it during this week's RAT!
