I made it the full 24 hours! I actually really expected to be more tired than I am. I am sure once I go to bed, I’ll be asleep very quickly. This has been a blast though and am a bit sad that it is over. I enjoyed most of my reads; I got to wear some new bookish apparel (pic on the right – new shirt from local independent bookstore); and consumed lots of great snacks.
- How would you assess your reading overall? I hit all my goals and then some, so I believe I did really well.
- Did you have a strategy, and if so, did you stick to it? I had a good TBR pile to pick from, which kept me very busy.
- What was your favorite snack? I had a cucumber dip and a taco dip, which made for good snacks.
- Did you add any new books to your TBR/wishlist after seeing what everyone else is reading? Yes I did. People were posting a lot of books I hadn’t heard of before.
- What was your favorite book or experience from this readathon? I really enjoyed reading Zodiac.

- Read at least 900 pages – I read 1,044 pages.
