This week, I participated in the Fall Catch-Up Read-a-thon.
So, how did I do? Pretty well, I think. The whole purpose, for me, was to spend more of my free time reading. I definitely made reading a priority this week, at least during the week. I really wasn’t sure how much reading I would get done this weekend, and so far it hasn’t been a lot. I had planned to finish my current book last night, but then our friends called and asked to go out. I hope to instead finish my book after brunch today.
I read The Dracula Dossier, by James Reese, Room, by Emma Donoghue and I am almost finished with I’d Know You Anywhere, by Laura Lippman. I think I would have read a lot more had it not been for The Dracula Dossier. It wasn’t abnormally long or anything, but there were a ton of footnotes, so it just took a lot longer to read. Here are my stats:
Monday: 128 pages, 2.5 hours
Tuesday: 163 pages, 3 hours
Wednesday: 255 pages, 2.5 hours
Thursday: 221 pages, 2.5 hours
Friday: 44 pages, 50 minutes
Saturday: 228 pages, 2 hours??
Grand Total: 1009 pages, 13 hours, 20 minutes
I am happy enough with the amount I read and hope to add to it, since today is the last day of the challenge. Plus, it was fun keeping my stats!
I hope everyone else has a great Sunday as well. What do you plan on reading today?
