Once Upon a Read-a-Thon — Wrap-Up Post

14 Jul

Once Upon a Read-a-Thon

Total Books Read: 2

Pages read since last post: 49

Total pages read: 595

Time read since last post: 30 minutes

Total time read: 6 hours 15 minutes


Here are my goals:

  • Read at least 5 books. — Only finished 2, on my 3rd
  • Post once a day. — Completed
  • Review all books read. — Reviewed the two finished books
  • Check in on and comment on at least 5 other participants. — Read a lot, but didn’t comment

Tentative reading list:

  • Have Spacesuit Will Travel — Robert Heinlein (Science Fiction)
  • Ringworld — Larry Niven (Science Fiction, 2011 With a  Twist)
  • A Matter of Class – Mary Balogh (Summer Romance Historical)
  • Ender’s Game – Orson Scott Card (Science Fiction, 2011 With a Twist) — In progress
  • Brave New World – Aldous Huxley (2011 Back in the Day, A to Z Author X)
So I didn’t complete my goals.  And really my hours reading were fairly low.  But compared to the last week, I got a lot accomplished.  Moving and adjusting to a new schedule, city, way of life has been a bit of a challenge.  I have been motivated to do things for the house and find a job, not to read.  Hopefully this challenge encourages my reading patterns.  I am enjoying Ender’s Game and hope to finish in the next two days. I did have fun doing the mini challenges and reading everyone else’s update posts.  A partial success in my book.  Now back to my regularly scheduled posting…
