Read-a-Thon Wrap up

Sigh.  One day I am going to do a read-a-thon and actually accomplish my reading goals.  I was intending on reading 3 books and starting a fourth but I ended up behind to start with because I wasn't able to finish the book I was on before the read-a-thon started.  So here is what I did acccomplish:

  • Finished the last 160 pages I had left of The Black Isle by Sandi Tan
  • Read Emily Hudson by Melissa Jones
  • Started Wilderness by Lance Weller
Final page count: 646 pgs

I think part of the reason I didn't make it this time was because I found out at the beginning of the read-a-thon that I would be starting college sooner than I thought which caused me to go into full on panic mode because I have several review books I have to get done before August 2nd.  It got me stressed enough where I actually couldn't read for 2 days out of the week! Guess not making it this time just means I'll have to sign up for a future read-a-thon and keep trying til I make it.

Thanks for hosting Michelle!
