Belated Readathon -- That's All Folks

  Time for me to pack it in. 

   I guess I was overly ambitious in the amount of reading I'd get done, since I only completed one book (Domestic Violets -- so good).  That said, I did read 70 pages of one book before I abandoned it, about 100 pages of Half Blood Blues, and four or five chapters of Bleak House.  I shouldn't be down on myself, though -- I've probably read today what some people might not read in a year.

  It was more tiring than I thought it would be, partially because I didn't properly plan the snack situation (and I'm an old lady).  Something to remember for next time -- coffee can only get you so far.
  I only read for just over nine hours, but for the sake of my charitable donation I'm going to say I read for 10 and will be sending $50 to Sit Stay Read.

  Thank you so much to Amanda at Dead White Guys (Happy Birthday!) and Brittney at The Souls of Thought for hosting this Belated Readathon. 

'Nite all.


  1. Well done with your first readathon, Suzanne!

    Everyone always over estimates how much they can read so that's completely normal. Good for you to give up on a book! And very good that you managed to read for 10 hours and will make a $50 donation.

  2. Thanks, Judith.

    I thought reading for the whole day would be easy, but I was wrong. I'll know better for next time :-)

  3. 9-10 hours. Wow. That's impressive.

    I just finished Half Blood Blues yesterday and it was amazing. One of the best books I've read this year. Hope you enjoy the rest of it.


What do you think? Good or bad, I'd love to hear from you (but be nice - I'm sensitive!)
