Read-A-Thon Wrap Up Post

Although this post is a bit late, here it is. I have to be honest and say I'm a little disappointed with myself in terms of my progress in this first readathon. I read for a total of 8 hours, got about 460 pages read. I managed to finish Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl (which I loved) and read the first fifty pages of Dust City by Robert Paul Weston.

My time spent reading was spread out throughout the day. I got about an hour done early in the morning, but then had to attend a fundraiser for my local humane society. After that I came home and fit in a few more hours, but I was really restless and having a hard time sitting still, so I wound up cleaning my room (including rearranging my dresser and bookshelf) and going for a run. I was probably so restless because I had had a long week, but also because the past few days have been unseasonably gorgeous and warm where I am, and frankly it's been too nice not to get out and exercise.

In retrospect, my mistake may have been making my biggest goal of the day finishing a near 600 page book. However, I wound up loving Beautiful Creatures, so I'm glad I read it. Hopefully for the next read-a-thon I'll feel a bit more motivated.
