Read-a-Thon Wrap Up

I can't believe I stayed up until 3:30 in the morning cheering for everyone. While I had a few things here or there on Saturday that I had to go out and take care of, I got to spend some quality time dropping in on readers throughout the day and night. They were all so inspiring! Believe it or not, I visited every reader at least once, and most I got to a second time.

There were a lot of differences across the board in the way people approached the read-a-thon, and I thought it was fun observing them. Some read their little eyes out, others took breaks to get things done around the house, others stopped off to cheer others on, and all seemed to participate in updating their blogs so we all could see how they were doing. Such fun! I have to admit though that it was the conversations about food and caffeine that had me laughing. There seemed to be a real run on pizza last night, and people drinking tea and Diet Coke into the evening. Lots of people had animals to keep them company, and a few had children watching videos in the background.

Well, this has decided it for me...I MUST join in next time to cheer AND read!


  1. You did great staying up that long! I'm so glad you're going to join in for the reading part too next time around!

  2. Thank you again for cheering! I look forward to you joining in as a reader next time too!

  3. It was so much fun. I was a bit hesitant at first and then ended up finding the whole thing magical. I have to say that I had the most fun when I took a break to cheerlead and play on Twitter and read blogs. It was a great day and it was made great by everyone. No matter how much or little you read!

    Thank you!

  4. Wow, I'm impressed with your dedication, you lasted longer as a cheerleader than I did as a reader! Thanks so much for stopping by to cheer me on, and I look forward to reading with you in October!

  5. You were awesome! I'm glad you're going to read next time. :D
