I am finally back on a normal work schedule. It is looking like I will actually get to enjoy my summer. I’m taking a few days off over the next two months and will get working on my Summer Reading list. A big shout out to my husband, whose birthday is today!

Last weekend’s 24-hour readathon really helped my reading life. I was able to finally finish some of the books I’ve been reading for a while. Plus, it was very enjoyable. I manage to hit all my goals. You can view my accomplishments here. Wish I didn’t have to wait so long for the next one, but hopefully I will have caught up with sleep by then.

Completed 24-hour Readathon – April 2021

d24r

I made it and read for the full 24 hours! I loved having this quality time with my books, but boy am I tired.

Closing Survey

  1. How would you assess your reading overall? I did great! (though you always wish you could read more books)
  2. Did you have a strategy, and if so, did you stick to it? I had goals that kept me focused. I also actively decided not to participate in too many mini-challenges and just focused on reading, because I haven’t made a lot of time for reading lately.
  3. What was your favorite snack? While I am proud of my first homemade waffle, my favorite snack is definitely my taco dip.
  4. Wanna volunteer for our next event? I will for sure attend the next readathon as a reader!

Goals Accomplished

  1. Complete 5 books – Finished 5 books
  2. Read 800 pages – Read 959 pages
  3. Read at least 18 hours – Read for the full 24 hours
  4. Post at least 10 times to social media – Posted 18 times to my blog, instagram, twitter and litsy
  5. Stay hydrated – Drank 80 oz of water (which is really really good for me)
  6. Get bingo – Yes! See below.
