It's great to be done! I thank you all for your patience in letting me take a day to recover before posting this. I was just about to do it last night, but then realized that I wasn't in the mood to post my final two book reviews, and that delayed me just a bit. That and it was after midnight when I returned home.
My friend Jess (with whom I saw Arcadia last night) has informed me that what I did would be considered torture under the Geneva Convention and that I must not be allowed to do it any more. At that point, I fully agreed.
So, my totals?
Total time reading/blogging/networking: 47 hrs, 33 min
Total books: 14
Total pages: 3829
Time spent doing things that could damage books (washing hands/rinsing dishes, etc): 27 minutes
Hours awake: 50
Times I wanted to gouge out eyes: oh, dozens
Ok, lying on that last one. But, yes, I do agree with Jess. I don't think you will see me staying awake for that long again, unless I really am being tortured! Plus, I think I would have actually read more books with more sleep. And, I need to focus more on networking for next year. That should be my new goal. I really only commentated on people's blogs if they were people I knew. Even online I'm still dreadfully shy and don't want to take the chance of annoying people with comments about how I'm reading that same book, etc. Maybe one of these days!
Maybe if I networked more, I would be more apt to keep this blog update, right?
Thanks, MotherReader for hosting this read-a-thon again!
