The bout of books read-a-thon is over and I have to say I really enjoyed it. I met a lot of new (crazy) people and got a lot of reading done. Usually I am bored to read during the day and only read before sleep but this time I read everywhere. Even at some classes of mine, I don't think anyone noticed so everything's cool.
I was really pupped up for this and as you can see from the Daily posts I read more during the first three days, then I kind of had a down fall, but still managed to reach my goal of three books during the week, which is twice what I usually read (I read one and a half books per week).
What did I read?
Bad Taste in Boys(my review)
Anna Dressed in Blood(my review)
The Girl in the Steel Corset (Still reading)
In total I finished 3 books and read 871 pages
There were also a few fun challenges I took part in while reading.
Day 1 Challenge: What do you like best about readathons? Do you have any readathon traditions or rituals? If this is your first readathon, what do you like so far?
This is actually my first read-a-thon and I am loving it. I really like that I push myself to read more, it’s like I am in a race and I have to win, or at least read. Also it helps me get through my reading pile. I would definitely participate in the future too.
