Hours 21 through 24

Since last update: Amsterdam - 114 pgs
                             Murder is Easy - 6 pgs (on audio, but also on Kindle)

Final totals

Pages: 512
Hours: 9 hr 45 min reading, 1 hr audio

It's interesting that even though I participated in a different time zone this time (starting at 2:00 p.m. instead of my usual 6:00 a.m.), my results were about the same.  It seems in any 24-hour period, I can only manage 10-12 hours of reading.  I'm ok with that.  Thank you to Laura for Readathonning with me again - you are the BEST RAT pal!!

Here is my Closing Survey:

1. Which hour was most daunting for you? I slept through most of hours 15-19
2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a reader engaged for next year? I became engrossed in Still Life with Bread Crumbs
3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next season? I was never able to see the participant's list, but I understand glitches happen...
4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?  I had trouble with the website, so I spent most of my time on Goodreads and Litsy
5. How many books did you read? 1 total and 3 partials
6. What were the names of the books you read? The War of the Worlds, Still Life with Bread Crumbs, Amsterdam, and Murder is Easy
7. Which book did you enjoy most?  Still Life with Bread Crumbs
8. Which did you enjoy least?  I enjoyed War of the Worlds - didn't love it
9. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?  I'll definitely participate as a reader, and cheer as best I can

  1. Congratulations, you did an awesome job! We had almost the exact same reading time, which kind of cracks me up. I'm adding Still Life With Bread Crumbs to my TBR, it sounds really good.
    And now, I hope you're off and enjoying the rest of your Sunday, and that you get a great nights' sleep!
