At the end of the day, I read a total of 712 pages, listened 166 minutes, and participated in 16 hours throughout the day. I didn't read for the full 16 hours, but I did read at least a portion of each of those hours. I also finished a total of 4 books, while dabbling in a couple of others. I've listed the completed ones for you all below:
- Jedi Academy #4: A New Class by Jarrett J. Krosoczka
- Dork Diaries #1: Tales From a Not-So-Fabulous Life by Rachel Renee Russell
- Flavia de Luce #2: The Weed That Strings the Hangman's Bag by Alan Bradley (audiobook)
- Ghosts by Raina Telgemeier
I am still 13 books behind schedule in order to meet my Goodreads Challenge goal for the year. I'm hoping to have a couple of good reading days between now and the end of the year, and I may make it less than 10 by the end of the year!
Lastly, I've gotta say that I had a blast participating in the event with my kids. My son beat my numbers, finishing more than 1000 pages for the day. My daughter didn't keep track of her numbers, so we don't really know. But, we had some great quality time together, played a literary game, and watched a movie. I could use a day like this every week!
Thanks to the organizers and co-hosts for this amazing event! I can't wait for April!
