Hey guys! I hope you enjoyed this readathon as much as I did! I want to thank everyone who participated, and give a special thanks to those who took the extra time to participate in the mini challenges as well. How did everyone do?! I did good – I didn’t reach my goal of 4 books, but I read 1500 pages, and in the normal books I read (350-400 pgs) that would be about 4 ;)
My final progress
Total # pages read: 1,505
Total time spent reading: 16 hours
Books I completed: 3 total – A Darker Shade of Magic, Sinner, The Orphan Queen
My day by day progress can be found in the kick off post.
I ended up being super busy this week and didn’t have nearly as much time to spend reading as I’d hoped. (16 hours out of a 168 hour week – ouch!) With bookish events, life events, and Valentine’s Day, I just didn’t have the spare time I’d hoped to have. My goal was 4 books, and I fell short with 3, but I’m trying not to be too sad about that because I still managed to read 1,500 pages! If one of my books hadn’t been 540 pages, I probably could have easily read 4. So still a win in my book ;)
