April 2009 24 Hour Read-A-Thon Finished!

So the Read-A-Thon is officially over and I have to say that I really enjoyed it. I enjoyed participating in it, commenting on others blogs and also the preparation leading up to the day. It was wonderful to know that people all over the world were participating and reading the same time I was.

I read 2 whole books:
The Bridges of Madison County - Robert James Waller
The Knife of Never Letting Go - Patrick Ness

Finished 1 I had started previously:
The Gargoyle - Andrew Davidson

And got halfway through another:
Divine Evil - Nora Roberts

I read 1020 pages in 24 hours. Not too bad.

I hope there is another Read-A-Thon in the summer. I think it would be great to sit up all night in the warm air reading books!
