I thoroughly enjoyed this year's Read-a-Thon! Unlike previous years, I decided to take a break every hour and catch up on emails and blog-hopping, in addition to hanging out with my husband and working on some weekend chores. It was a nice balance and my eyes didn't get too tired.
Here are my final stats:
Start Time: 7:55 a.m.
End Time: 11:25 p.m.
Total Reading Time: 7 hours
Total Time in Breaks: 8 1/2 hours
Total Pages Read: 545*
Total Number of Books Finished: 1
The Devoted by Jonathan Hull (Fiction)
A Thousand Mornings by Mary Oliver (Poetry)
The Hunchback of Neiman Marcus by Sonya Sones (Fiction)
*253 of the 545 were from Sones' book, which is told in verse. It's a very quick read.
This was a great challenge and I'm looking forward to the next one in the spring. Until then, I'm going to aim for at least 2-3 hours of reading every weekend. 15-20 minutes before bed just isn't enough!
