It’s officially over for me! It’s been 48 hours since I started, and I have accomplished quite a few of the goals I set out from the start.
Total hours read: 21. My goal was 15, and I hoped to hit 20. I went even further than that.
Hours spent social networking with other participants: 2 hours. I plan on doing quite a bit more of this now that my reading time is over.
Cups of tea consumed: A grand total of 12. All vanilla.
Books finished since last update:
Total number of books read: 10. My goal was 3 or 4. Guess I surpassed that a little bit.
Book breakdown: 6 adult books (3 graphic novels); 3 YA books; 1 middle grade book
On the Duncan book: Since I was asked a lot about this one, I’ll say that while I enjoyed reading it, it didn’t impress me as much as I hoped it would. It wasn’t bad, but it took a long time for me to get into Laurie’s story, and it took a long time for the astral projection elements to snap into place (though when they did, they played out well).
Up Next: I plan on doing a lot of blog reading and catch up, since I didn’t blog much this weekend. I wanted to just read and take notes for future reviews. But the one thing I didn’t accomplish reading-wise this weekend was starting the final book in the Millennium trilogy, so I suppose I’ll be starting The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest shortly. I balance reading those books with YA titles, so I’ll probably also start reading Never Enough by Denise Jaden.
Visual: Because I know I’m a visual person, here’s everything I read this weekend, in order:
2012 goal making: I set an arbitrary goal of reading 220 books this year. This weekend, I finished book 101. That means I’m 46% of the way there and about 4 books ahead of schedule to reach that goal.
But first: I need a nap and a shower and another bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal.
