Final Read-a-Thon Update
I ended up not reading anything else after my last post last night. I played LOTRO while I watched a movie, and I planned to start a new book when the movie went off, but I felt kinda queasy, so I just went to bed. It was already after midnight, and it felt like a migraine was on its way, so I thought it was a good idea to get some sleep. While still a little queasy this morning, I feel much better than last night!
Though I didn't read for the entire twenty-four hours, I still feel like I accomplished more than I have in previous read-a-thons! I wish I had kept up with all of my stats (pages read, time spent reading, etc), but I didn't think about it. I finished three books yesterday, and I believe that's a record for me, at least during the read-a-thon. Another first for me was listening to audiobooks during the read-a-thon! They really helped me yesterday, so I could still "read" while doing things around the house.
Books I read yesterday:
The Secret Life of Lizzie Bennet - Kate Rorick and Bernie Su
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (audiobook) - Lewis Carroll
Classic Love Poems (audiobook) - Various (included Shakespeare, Keats, Shelley, Poe, amongst others)
I also made a couple of new bookish Twitter friends, so all in all, I think yesterday's read-a-thon was a success!
