spring 2011 read-a-thon :: I’m audi!

readathon-bannerForgive the dated joke, please. I’ve left my book’s characters in 1998, so it just seemed appropriate to say. 😀
As it is, this post concludes my participation in another Read-a-Thon. As I mentioned in the first post of the morning, I have an early Sunday morning commitment that requires me to be rested, so I am officially closing the book (yes, the puns keep a-comin’) on this spring event. Following are the totals for my day’s reading, and I have to say, this was my most successful yet! Thanks to all the cheerleaders and commenters who dropped by to offer encouragement, and special thanks to all the people who keep the website running and everything in order throughout the 24-hour event (and beyond!). You truly make this a community event! Looking forward to yet another glorious stretch in the fall…

  • Total books read:   Just the one — One Day by David Nicholls — which kept me consumed throughout the entire day and still has me wanting to spend more time with it. Thankfully, I’m not done yet! I’ve just found that a single encompassing book is much more successful for me than switching around throughout the day or reading smaller tomes.
  • Pages read since last update:   108 pages
  • Total pages read since I started:   262 pages + 35 blog posts
  • Total amount of time spent reading since I started:   13 hours, all told
  • Mini-challenges completed:  6 out of the 16 posted so far — Introduction Meme, Where in the World Are You Reading?, Oldies but Goodies, Re-Create a Cover, Book/Reading Habits, and the Book Sentence challenge. All were incredibly fun and the perfect foil to any groggy feelings that may have cropped up throughout the day.

    Be sure to keep up with the rest of the readers via Twitter by following the hashtag #readathon. They’ll need the most encouragement as the night moves into the early morning hours. Good reading to all! And a very good night!
