Read-a-thon - Wrap up!

This was my second time doing the read-a-thon and I enjoyed it.  My goals were to read at least 5 books and read for at least 15 hours.  I was able to do the book goal but not the number of hours reading.  I guess I took too many breaks; plus I know some challenges took a lot longer then I had wanted.  Maybe next time I will time my breaks a little better.  Thankfully this time around I had nothing to do Sunday so I was able to do the whole read-a-thon and due to more frequent breaks I did not get a headache.  I also participated in a lot more challenges.  One thing I plan to do more of next time is go to other participant's blogs and comment every once in a while.  I didn't do that at all this time.  I was too busy reading and participating in challenges that I completely forgot that was something I had wanted to.

My husband had planned on doing the read-a-thon too but couldn't get into it.  Instead he made sure I didn't have to worry about making lunch and dinner; plus supplying me with coffee and cheering me on.  He was awesome!

Below are my final stats.  Now I am off to get some much needed sleep.

Books Read - 5

Number of Pages Read - 1300
Total Time Spent Reading - 13 hours & 13 minutes
Total Time Spent on Breaks & Challenges - 10 hours & 47 minutes
Number of Mini Challenges Completed - 12
