Thus ends my first readathon. I enjoyed this spur of the moment decision and would participate again. Next time I think I would prefer to plan for it and be ready with meals and snacks prepared. I kept thinking of things I should be doing to get ready to leave my house for 2 months. Oh, well, I still have Monday after work to get ready.

I read some good books that I don't have to haul to my vacation home now. I think the ones I enjoyed the most were Sing Me to Sleep and All Unquiet Things. Both were very different from each other but very entertaining and moving books.



  1. Congrats on completing the challenge :)

  2. Preparing meals ahead of time--I love it! You read so much more than I did, but I still feel like I accomplished a great deal. I knocked a few books off of my TBR pile and still managed to spend time with family and friends. Way to go, Ms. Martin!

  3. Thanks for this latest update and well done.
