The Sunday Salon (Readathon wrap-up) -- October 10, 2010
Sunday, October 10, 2010
Phew! What a day it was yesterday! Doing the readathon was so much fun this time, once I had my priorities sorted out. I didn't last the whole 24 hours, and of the 18 hours I participated, I clocked just 9 of those hours on pure reading. That's a real shocker - because I actually spent the remaining 9 hours on "distractions". But that suits me fine, the longer time I spend reading, the lesser my perseverance. I also ended up doing too many mini-challenges for the fun of it, and also mostly because I didn't plan that out properly at all. That's one thing I will change about my readathon next time.
During the 9 hours I spent reading, I completed one book - Russell Wiley is Out to Lunch by Richard Hine - and made huge progress on The Passage by Justin Cronin. I'm glad I read The Passage yesterday because it sure takes a long time to get through it.
After reading for a whole day, I'm now facing a Sunday full of chores. Ugh! At least I enjoyed one day. I'm not sure if I can do any reading today, but I'd sure love to try. I'm not yet burnt out. This week is going to be busy at work as well. Any of you have a holiday tomorrow for Columbus Day? Well, good for you, because I don't and I'm not happy about it! :-(
Off I go to do my chores. I'll come around to check all your posts soon - since most of them will be readathon-related, I don't think I would have missed too much.
Happy reading and happy blogging!
