That’s a Wrap: Dewey’s Read-A-Thon

Well I did it…the best I could with  a few important events (one of my close friends was married last night) squeezed in that required me to stop reading but staying up through the night pushed me pretty far in my results. For my readers out there not involved in the Book Blogging World…I encourage you to give it a try next year, Dewey’s Read-A-Thon is a fun way to devote yourself completely to reading for a day and really push yourself. You also get a lot of that To Be Read List done and it feels great! Can’t wait for next year! I was also lucky enough to finish one of my challenges for the year as well in my reading.

Total Books: 12 (One is missing from the picture…I think it’s in the bed somewhere!)

Total Pages: 3, 756

Total Hours Read: 15.5

  1. Way to go! You did an awesome job.

  2. In celebration of Blogmania, I’ve passed along a blog award to you – http://catemasters.blogspot.com

    I tried really hard considering I had a Wedding and some sleep. I chose some lighter reading to keep me going…but I also finished a Challenge so it was a great year! Thanks!

  5. I love that you read the Sookie series! It’s one of my favorites! I can completely see how you could read them all during the read-a-thon.

    As for the cheerleading tips…since that’s most of what I did this time, I’d say plan on doing one or the other. I tried to do both and I think I’d have more fun doing just the one. And cheering was really really fun!

    So glad you did so well!
