Wow! That was quite the weekend. To check in at the finish line, click here. Here are my final numbers:
Over the past 48 hours (starting Friday night at 8:00 p.m. and ending tonight at 8:00 p.m.) I have:
Read for 14 hours and 12 minutes
Listened to an audiobook for 11 hours and 32 minutes
Networked (reading and commenting on other participants’ blogs) for 1 hour and 18 minutes
Blogged for 3 hours and 31 minutes
for a GRAND TOTAL of 30 hours and 33 minutes.
During some of my blogging time, I was writing reviews for the books I finished. Here is the schedule for those reviews:
Monday, June 11 at 12:oo p.m. : Bitter in the Mouth
Wednesday, June 13 at 12:00 p.m. : Perfect
Thursday, June 14 at 12:00 p.m. : Keep Holding On
In addition to these books, I also finished Tina’s Mouth and finished listening to The Abstinence Teacher, which brings my book total to 4 print books and 1 audiobook. During the last hour of the challenge I started Made for You and Me by Caitlin Shetterly (thanks for the recommendation, Cam 🙂 ). I won’t count it, considering I just just started it, but I love it so far.
I pledged myself 50 cents per hour read and donated $20 to Reading is Fundamental (I rounded up).
This was a great experience and I hope I have time to participate next year! Thanks again for everyone’s help, especially to you, Mom, for helping my system for keeping track of time spent reading go from this:
Happy Reading, everyone! I’m off to have a shower and go to sleep…maybe we should do a sleep-a-thon next weekend, who’s with me? 🙂
