It's 11:30am, six and a half hours after the end of this year's read-a-thon. It was an awesome event as always, even if I did accidentally schedule the world's slowest painting contractor to come give an estimate right in the middle of it. I also did a couple of new things this read-a-thon that I've never done before --
1. I did a bit of cheerleading as part of #teamrogue
2. I listened to an audiobook
3. I fell asleep
That's right kids ... I turned on my audiobook to rest my eyes at about 2:00am and all of a sudden it was 2:40am. I didn't even tweet one last time or anything. I just shuffled off to bed and was asleep within minutes. This definitely taught me a lesson about when audiobooks work for me (while prepping food, baking and eating) and when they don't (when I will fall asleep immediately upon closing my eyes).
Here are a few of my stats from the day:
Books finished -- 2 (Primates graphic novel and The Castle of Llyr)
Books in the middle of -- 2 (The Pigeon Pie Mystery and Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library audiobook)
Pages read -- 470
Minutes listened -- 110 (I didn't count the time when my book was playing but I was, ahem, not listening)
Minutes spent cheering -- 55
Total read-a-thon hours -- 10
This is a really low number for me in pages and hours. I blame the dawdling contractor, my extra late start and social media. Still, I had SO much fun! I chatted with a bunch of people on Twitter, left some comments on new-to-me blogs and thoroughly enjoyed everything I read. Now, though, it's time to go pay for all of those snacks yesterday with some time at the gym.
Did you participate in the read-a-thon? How did it go?
