Mini Challenges: None Today

I’m very happy with my showing for this Bout of Books Readathon.  I knew I wouldn’t be able to accomplish as much as last time (full time job), but I think 7 1/2 books and over 1900 pages is quite a respectable accomplishment.  Plus I had fun with a few mini challenges.  And finally, I knocked out two of my 2011 Reading Challenges.  At this rate, I just might reach my reading challenge goals this year.  My one failing this time was the Net Galley book.  I just didn’t get around to it.  I still have a fondness for physical books that the iPad just can’t shake.  One of these days I will just have to take the iPad to work.  Then I would be forced to use it…  possibility.  Overall, I enjoyed this readathon for the second time and look forward to the next one!

My goals:

  • Read at least 5 books (7.5 done) √
  • Read at least 1 Net Galley book (TBD)
  • Review all books read (7 done) √
  • Participate in at least 2 mini challenges (3 done) √
