Readathon Wrap Up

As stated in a post from yesterday, I was quite late getting started with the Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon yesterday.  However, the night - and into the early morning hours - turned out really good for me.

I finished Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights which was a definite goal all along for this go round of the RAT.  I forgot to mention in my beginning post yesterday that my kids and I have been listening to Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling.  We managed two more chapters of that through the craziness of yesterday.  We also read some of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Once my kids were asleep last night, and after spending some time with my husband (don't want him feeling neglected) - I started Nora Roberts' The Witness.  Oh my, what a great book! This is the one that kept me reading until the end of the read-a-thon.  I'm one-third of the way through it already.  I don't want to read it too fast but at the same time I don't want to put it down.  It's extremely engaging and a really well written book.

I also participated in a few mini-challenges which are always fun.  I'm already looking forward to the next installment of Dewey's 24-Hour Read-a-Thon - in October.  Hopefully there won't be so much going on that keeps my girls and I from our reading.

  1. Though I participated from the beginning, I was most productive toward the end of the readathon. I've heard good things about The Witness.
