I think this has been my most successful Readathon yet. I read (as in solid reading time) close to nine hours. Reading is a pleasure for me and I’ve no desire to turn it into a chore, so I knew I certainly wouldn’t be reading for 24 hours. Within those 9 hours I managed to finish 2 books, put a dent in a classic, and zip half-way through a YA book. My ultimate goal was to read at least 500 pages during Readathon, and that I did!
Here are my final stats:
Time Read: 8 hours, 40 minutes
Number of Pages Read: 530
Challenges: completed one challenge
Blogging and Tweets: 3 blog posts, 23 tweets
Next Readathon is April 21st, 2012! Of course, I have to make Readathon my own so I’ll be making these changes in the structure of my readathon:
- I’m going to make a theme for my Readathon next year. It may be Viragos, or library books, or books I own, or graphic novels, or books for a challenge, etc…… I’ll decided the first week of April and begin assembling my stack ‘o’ books.
- My goal will be to read 600 pages
- I’ll do a pre-Readathon post and a Readathon wrap-up the next day, but other than that I’m taking Readathon totally on Twitter.
Okey dokey, I’ll see you Readathon cats next year!
