From what I’ve been able to gather from the others participating in the read-a-thon, they started at a later hour than I did. I started at 1:30 AM EST and it’s now 1:00 AM the following day. I am going to bed. Between falling asleep, running errands, and attending birthday parties for 2 friends (I read on my phone while at the parties!) I certainly did not spend a full 24 hours of reading. I’ll wager I read and listened to books for a good 12 hours.
12 hours is quite good I think. About 11 hours more than usual.
Still, it doesn’t seem right to sign up for, and participate in, a 24-hour read-a-thon without reaching the goal. So, I plan to make it up this week. I don’t think I’ll be able to fit another 12 hours in tomorrow, but I certainly can over the next few days. I will keep all ya’ll updated by posting my progress here.
Thanks to all the ‘cheerleaders’ who have commented on my posts for encouraging me to keep reading!
