Read-a-thon – over?

10 Apr

So I definitely didn’t have a spectacular read-a-thon this time around. I got slightly distracted around hour 11 because my roommate had a bunch of friends over for poker night and they were playing in the kitchen…right outside my room. Loud boys. Then! When most of them had left, a few were still hanging out and my roommate yelled at me to come out and have a beer. Which of course I had to do. And then I had two more, and then we all went out for Mexican food. And Coronas. I fully expected to come home and stay up reading. But that so didn’t happen.

But I am happy to report that before that distraction, I finished another book: Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce. Which also counts towards my Once Upon a Time Challenge books as well. So it wasn’t a completely unproductive read-a-thon. Here are the final stats:

Books Read: 2

Pages completed: 495

Money raised: $49.50 (but I feel like a slacker so I’m going to round that up to $50).

Not too bad. How did you do Read-a-thoners?

    You did great?! If I had been the one to go out for Mexican food and Coronas, there’s no way I would have read anything else after that!! You’re amazing! Congratulations on winning a read-a-thon prize! Pick your prize then email me with your prize choice and mailing address! 🙂

    Awesome – 495 pages AND a night out with Coronas is a lot for one day.

    You did far better than me!! The weather was uncharacteristically lovely here, so had to make the most of it, which involved wine, which was non-conducive to a readathon!! Ah well, maybe I’ll do better next year!

    I’ve reached the point with readathons where I figure if I can get a book read in a day, then I’ve had success! Good job!
