Dewey's Read-a-Thon October 13th 2012 wrap up post

My goal for this Read-a-Thon was to take part the whole 24 hours and read at least 3 books.
Another goal was to visit at least two other blogs every hour of the Read-a-Thon

I reached my goals.

I lasted the whole 24 hours. Of course I had a few times I was struggling, around 12 hours and again around hour 21 and 22. I got through without falling asleep.

I did visit over 50 blogs over the 24 hours and even left a comment on a couple of them. This I will change again next read-a-thon as I felt it took a lot of time away from my reading and that is my main purpose of taking part in the read-a-thon.

I read 3½ books all in all.
  1. Forgiven by Jana Oliver - 417 pages
  2. Winnie-the-Pooh by A.A. Milne - 192 pages
  3. White Night by Jim Butcher - 481 pages
  4. Xoe: or Vampires, and Werewolves, and Demons, Oh My! by Sara C. Roethle - 75 pages (the book is 150 pages but I only got to 50 % before the end of the read-a-thon. I have now finished the book)


  1. Winnie-the-Pooh would be a good readathon book :) Cute and quick.

    Congrats on reaching all of your goals!


  2. Good job lasting the whole 24 hours! I went to sleep pretty early, actually. I'm a wimp that way.

  3. Congrats on lasting the whole 24 hours! I am so impressed by everyone who did that. Thanks for stopping by my blog during the readathon. :)
