Read. Read. Read-A-Thon: FAILED!!!

Yes, I am just now getting around to writing my wrap-up post for the Read. Read. Read-A-Thon. And, I will give you a one-word wrap-up: FAILED!! I'm talking big-time!! I truly believe that I have read more every other weekend than I have for the two read-a-thon days that I have done. What is up with that?!?

In case you are wondering what my excuse was this time: kids, hubby actually home for the weekend, holiday season, and last, but not least, sick. I attempted to lay down for a few hours, with every intention of waking up again to read for the final three hours. I woke up feeling very, very sick and ended up going back to bed.

For those who may be wondering what my final totals really were, I have listed them below. Just don't judge me!!

Time Spent Reading: 2 hours, 25 minutes
Pages Read: 286 pages
Posts Written: 5 (1 kick-off, 1 check-in, 2 meme, 1 wrap-up)

Even though the read-a-thon is over, you can still participate in my Book Libs meme!! Participate yourself by filling it out or visiting those who already have! It'a guaranteed giggle!! :)


  1. You're too funny. :) I think it's the pressure of it all that keeps us from really reading. I didn't do this particular readathon, but I have done two others, and bombed every time. I never understand the people who read like a book an hour. How is that possible? No's just fun to participate, right? :)

  2. At least you tried! I hope you can participate in another read-a-thon :)

  3. This is why I don't participate in one. The weekends are rough. Maybe when the kids move out.

    At least you tried which is more than you can say about me!

  4. mjmbecky . . . It is fun to participate! I may attempt it again and again just because of that, but I really should not go in with such high expectations considering!!

    MissAttitude . . . I hope so too!! :)

    J. Kaye . . . I will probably just keep trying! It's a good excuse to read and may be easier when it is not the holiday season. At least, it is worth another try!

  5. Tif, it took me three tries to finish one reading challenge. I finally did it. Persistence

  6. J. Kaye . . . Well, I'm hoping that the third time will be a charm!! :)
