Dewey's Readathon: The Wrap-up

I feel a bit cheeky doing a wrap up post because quite frankly this hasn't been the best readathon for me. Better than April when I ended up not doing anything, but not by much!

My excuses - the time zones are a bit inconvenient, it was a gorgeous spring day here and it was a family members birthday so we spent most of the day outside indulging in retail therapy and sunshine.

I did manage to get up to date in Princess Bride Readalong, read a few pages of The Amazing Maurice and I not only started, but also finished The Exile by Diana Gabaldon.

I hosted a mini-challenge and had such a great time doing so! Thank you again to everyone who participated.

I spent quite a bit of time cheerleading, visiting everyone I was allocated, and also I think I managed to visit all my mini-challenge participants.

As usual I also spent a fair bit of time on Twitter. If I had to sum up my readathon experience in just one sentence it would probably be "lots of sunshine, not much reading, but heaps of fun!

And now it is time to go to bed!


  1. I didn't get much reading done this time either but spent a lot of it cheering. Like you said, it was lots of fun though!

    So... you know how we started the #spbkchat because of time zones. Well, I wonder if we could figure out a small-scale readathon that would be easier for us over here. I would totally be up for that. What d'ya think?? :)

  2. As long as you had fun and got to participate, it really doesn't matter how much reading you got done!

  3. With the time and headspace needed, eventually we'll organize a 'what about our time zone?' readathon. :)

  4. I have this feeling that nobody can fail at a readathon, because to me it is all about having fun while participating :)

  5. I think your read-a-thon experience sounds like great fun. Mine got interrupted several times also - just go with the flow and enjoy yourself.

    Thanks for sponsoring a mini-challenge and also for stopping by my blog to cheer.

  6. I can understand that the timezones are just not suitable. In my time zone, readathon started at 8 am - which I feel is the best time to start. I wouldn't even want to be among those starting at 5 am, sigh. But I'm glad you had a fun time!

  7. Marg -- I'm late in doing this, but I wanted to thank you for stopping by and cheering for me at my blog. Here's to the next read-a-thon!!
