My Final Read-a-thon Totals
(Shout out to my dear hubby who documented my (our?) journey!)
Well, I just had a blast yesterday, and I am so glad I participated in the read-a-thon. I am proud of myself for the four books that I finished. One was adolescent lit, so it went by quickly, and one was rather short because it's more of a coffee table book, but I did well overall.
The funny thing is that I woke up voraciously hungry for more literature. The first thing I did was pick up a book! But then reality hit me how irrational that response was, and I went downstairs and made homemade coffee cake muffins and omelets to celebrate my 'thon success.
All right, so here are my final tallies for the whole event:
724 pages read
902 minutes reading (15 hours, and that includes getting a late start by 5 hours!!)
260 minutes blogging and reading other blogs
4 books finished (Shakespeare's Much Ado about Nothing, Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None, Anna Quindlen's Being Perfect, and Lois Lowry's The Messenger)
3 caffeine beverages (coffee, coke, tea)
6 mini challenges
2 bowls of ice cream
1 episode of West Wing watched w/ hubby
1 In 'N Out cheeseburger devoured
All in all, it was a fun and energizing experience.
