I had no idea how much fun the Read-a-Thon would be. I had a blast! I loved settling in for a cozy day of reading and good snacks, doing mini-challenges, reading posts from other participants, and tweeting with everyone. I'm already excited for the next one.
Here's a recap of how I did - book reviews to come. I also have several non-Read-a-Thon books that still need reviews posted.
Books Read: 3
Pages Read: 691
Blog Posts: 9
Mini-Challenges Completed: 11
Coffee Consumed: 2 mugs, plus 1 Starbucks Doubleshot around hour 15
Hours I Participated: 18 (some more successful than others)
Books I finished:
Cherries in Winter by Suzan Colon
Making Mischief by Gregory Maguire
The Wild Things by Dave Eggers
I was so excited to win Erika's Mini-Challenge! I won my choice of 2 books from the prize page, and a set of bookmarks! The books I chose were:
The Man Who Loved Books Too Much by Allison Hoover Bartlett
The Heretic’s Daughter by Kathleen Kent
Money raised for 826 NYC:
I decided to donate $10 for every book finished and $3 for every blog post to 826 NYC. So with 3 books finished and 9
blog posts, that's $57 for 826 NYC!
