Impromptu Read-a-thon End Post!


So, I don’t know if you read it, but yesterday I posted about an Impromptu read-a-thon hosted by Amber at Down the Rabbit Hole that I was taking part in. I posted my goals, which were:

  •         To finish the 190 pages I had left of Dark Inside by Jeyn Roberts.
  •         To read ALL of Vanish by Sophie Jordan
  •        To make a dent in Ashes by Ilsa J. Bick (At least 50 pages)


Well, I’m happy to say, I completed all three of my goals! I started reading at 2 yesterday, and read non-stop (when I wasn’t eating or sleeping…) until 2 today. So, here’s what I managed to read:

  •        190 pages of Dark Inside
  •        100% of Vanish (304 pages)
  •        50% of Ashes (225 pages)


So, using Goodreads page counts, I’ve totalled that up to 719 pages! And in the 24 hours that I took part, I managed to read for 10 hours, 53 minutes. Which is 653 minutes, so I think I did pretty well, as that’s just over a page a minute :)

I’d like to thank Amber for hosting this awesome read-a-thon, and it made a great way to end the week for me :) It was great fun and it was my first read-a-thon, and I don’t think it will be my last!

  2. Geezus this sounds so intense! Like Slowest Bookworm, I read quite languidly. I've always been astounded by fast readers!

*I am no longer accepting blog awards :( I do not have time to go through all the things that come with it, and though I'm honoured you thought of me, I'm sure you can find someone who will love it, and be able to carry out the rules :)
