Readathon Wrap-ups

Hello from the other side . . . of the readathons that is!  (And, a little music video to go along with that because it is what I am listening to as I write this little wrap-up! Go ahead and give a listen while you read.)

Now for the actual readathon stats!  I'm going to break it down by day.  I obviously had some days of highs and lows, but overall I was pleased with my progress.  I didn't actually finish any books, but I did make significant progress in many of them!  Keep in mind when reviewing the stats, that I participated in both the Spring Into Horror Readathon all last week as well as Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon on Saturday.

I was hoping for higher numbers for the physical books, but those numbers for the audiobooks are looking much better than expected!  I am so thankful these days for audio and the ability to multitask.  Now, I just need to find the time to blog and write again!!  I have only a couple weeks left of the semester and then I'm done with classes for a very long time.  I can do it!!

Did you participate in one or both of the readathons?  How did you do?  Were you happy with your results?


  1. Dang, girl! Impressive! I hope you had a blast with both!

    1. Michelle ... Thank you! I don't know what I would do without audiobooks these days!

  2. Those aren't bad numbers at all! I was going to participate on Saturday but life got in the way.

  3. You did a great job! I'm just so glad you were able to participate. I really need to listen to more audio books. For some reason, I only listen in the car and I don't do much driving anymore.

    I'm trying to decide on a Sit Down and Write event. I'm planning on working pretty extensively next month on researching a new idea and planning the novel, but June is out for SDaW because I'm hosting an event (a surprise...stay tuned) at Seasons of Reading the first week in June and then I'll be in Michigan for over a week later in the month for my best friend's wedding and visiting family. So, it looks like either the latter part of May - a two week event, or the whole month of July. What do you think? What would work for you? I'm not sure yet if I'm going to do Camp NaNoWriMo, but I'm considering it.

    Hope you'll consider joining us for my surprise June event, if it's of interest, and for High Summer in July.

    Oh, dear, forgot about High Summer. I may not make Sit Down and Write the entire month of July then. Decisions, decisions. ;)

    1. Michelle Miller ... Thank you! July would work better for me for SDaW. I feel like I am just digging myself out of this whole of taking classes for the last year, so I need to get caught up on my reader again and see what this surprise event is! Keep me posted on what you decide to do!
