Hour 22-24 Update

Book(s) read since last update: Love to Hate Me, Handmaid's Tale, The Last Ever After by Woman Chainani
Number of pages read since last update: 65pgs; 1h. 2m.
Total pages read during read-a-thon: 843pgs; 4hr. 9m.
Books finished: ACOMAF and Made You Up
Comments/reviews: Finally done! Was finished way later than planned. Had a family emergency and when that was not so bad anymore it was time for Game of Thrones. Anyway, listened to more of the Handmaid's Tale, finished Sarah Enni's story, and started Last Ever After. Minus the problem today, I think this was a pretty good readathon. Wish I had read 1000pgs though. I think if I included Handmaid's Tale it would be 1000pgs. Next readathon: Octobers Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon!

Mini Challenge

  1. How many books did you read? Pages? (If you didn’t keep track, tell me that too!) 2 books completed, 3 books not, 843pgs read, and 4 hours and 9 minutes of an audio book listened to.
  2. How many hours did you read? 24!
  3. What do you think worked well in this readathon? I kept swapping books so I didn't loose my mojo.
  4. What do you think could be done to improve the readathon for next time? For me: bring snacks. For the readathon: I'd like a place to share my books on the readathon site so I can see what everyone else read.
  5. Will you participate in a future 24in48 readathon? Most definitely!

Comments/reviews: Finished another book! Made You Up is done.  Its nice outside so I read the rest of it in the garden. Also read part of Sarah Enni's story in Because You Love to Hate Me.
