Readathon Conclusion

Posted April 11, 2010 by Whitney in read-a-thon / 9 Comments

Alright, I’ll admit it, I couldn’t stay up for the full 24 hours, going to bed at midnight.  My eyes were just getting sooo heavy and before I knew it, I was gone like the wind.

Would I do it again?
Yes, I had so much fun, although while I have been known to read for long stretches of time this one really tested me.  I think the only thing I would do differently, would be to have one on-going post.  I think it would make my reading a little more organized and easier to keep track of.

  1. Good job! I couldn't join in the fun this time, but maybe next time.

    Whitney, have you ever read Forever Amber? That was a book that I read long ago after Gone With the Wind, and I loved it as much as I loved GWTW!

  2. You did really well, I admit though I read for a couple of hours at a time sometimes but sitting there and really reading for 4 hours with only a few breaks really tested me. I think tonight I'm doing anything but reading!

  3. Good for you! I haven't exactly done a read-a-thon like this but I have stayed up an entire day in my sweats just gorging on some book. Usually a Nora Roberts book…

  4. Aaaah, Gone With the Wind, one of my favourites! I read Wuthering Heights this year too – I will be looking forward to reading your review of it. I had mixed feelings
