I managed to stay awake for another 2 hours and then just couldn’t keep my eyes open! I want to thank Trish, Wordlily, Nymeth and Eva for organizing this event, all the wonderful people who ran mini-challenges and all the fabulous cheer leaders. It was great fun!

How I feel about the Read-a-thon: This was great fun. I’m am really glad I had a large selection of books on my Read-a-thon pile, including the graphic novels. They added many pages to my total count. There were several books I picked up to read and just couldn’t get into and it was a relief to have many other choices. Until next time, keep reading!
