Wrap Up Note

I think I did pretty well and on average I think I read at least 50 pages/day. I came short in my goal for the challenge, participating in only 3 rather than 4, thought they were entire event challenges, didn't realize they only ran for 24 hours; disappointed as I really wanted to participate in the Valentine's  Day Cover Ball. 

I also did not participate in any Twitter chats/parties but I did come close to my update posts, the longest time I didn't update was 3 days but most days I updated every 2 days if not daily.

So overall I think that this Read-a-thon was a success for me. I definitely did a lot better than  my last Read-a-thon. I wanted to thank all Bloggers who participated in the challenges, chats and My Shelf Confessions for bringing this fun event to everyone. Will definitely be participating in the next one. Till then...Happy Reading!!! 

Goals

  1. Read 5 books this week 
  2. Participate in at least 4 challenges
  3. Participate in Twitter chats/party
  4. Visit 5 blogs daily - no linky for update posts
  5. Try and read 50 pages/day
  6. Post my updates at least once every 2 days
