24 Hour Readathon: Finish Line & Giveaway Reminder

Last night I ended up staying up until close to 2am.  By that point though, I can't say that it was that productive!  Here are my wrap-up stats.

Number of books read since you started:  2 (but they were manga) & a bunch of pages in a bunch of other books.
Running total of pages read since you started:  About 520? 
Running total of time spent reading since you started: 6
Mini-challenges completed:  Still just the 1 that didn't get posted during the insanity yesterday.
Other participants you’ve visited:  Not sure?  I bounced around a little.

After some sleep, I'm feeling better about all the interruptions to my Read-a-thon this time around.  Life happens!  :)  I actually think I'll be doing a bit of reading today, mixed with a giant stack of papers to grade as we head toward our end of term at the end of October.  Today, I'll be taking it easy though and enjoying my Sunday!

Just as a quick reminder though, don't forget to sign up to win one of two free copies of Sharon Lathan's newest novel, In the Arms of Mr. Darcy, which came out at the beginning of the month!   The giveaway closes tonight at midnight so there is still time to join in the giveaway!


  1. I am glad that the read-athon ended better than it started :)

    I also have grading to do today --- my least favorite activity of being an English teacher. I am trying to focus and get it done before 3:00 so that I can enjoy the rest of my weekend guilt-free.

  2. I just read your post about the fire department. Big hugs!! I didn't get much reading done this time around either-but you had a much better excuse then I had.

  3. Congratulations on finishing the read-a-thon, even with a few interruptions! I hope to be able to join in the next time around.

  4. Molly--Thanks! Yes, grading never ends. :)

    Buckeye Girl--Yea, the firemen weren't exactly "firey" so-to-say, but they put my mind at ease!

    Jessica--Thanks so much! I hope I can sit back and enjoy it more next time, although I seem to never get to join in the spring!
