Welp, I haven't gotten much read on this last stretch because I haven't been feeling too well, but the grand total is 8 books, 2 short stories, and an unfinished novel and graphic novel for 1,269 pages. I'm pretty proud of myself, and now I'm going to bed. lol

I'll have a full wrap up in a few hours along with some proper reviews.

Thanks to Dewey and all her helpers, all the readers, and all the cheerleaders for making this a great time!

The final challenge: The Wrap Up!

2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?

The Partly Cloudy Patriot, by Sarah Vowell

3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?

4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?

6. What were the names of the books you read?

7. Which book did you enjoy most?

  5. Well done! And if you had to dance to any cheezy 80's music to stay awake, I want to know what it was. :-)

    Sleep well!

  6. Thanks, Veens!

    Heatheroo, thank ya! I never dreamed I'd get that much read. I was a woman possessed! And yes, you did send Incantation. THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH! It was wonderful and sad and great.

    Thank you, Marg!

    Amen, Nat! I actually took a shower earlier in the evening to refresh me and keep me peppy. Now I'm up for Sunday and feel like I need another one!

    Thanks, Gautami!

    LOL, Lezlie! I decided to forego the 80s music. Daisy was asleep and I don't interrupt unless I ABSOLUTELY have to. ha!

  7. Congratulations - I am really impressed that you can read soooo many books one after the other! Have a nice sleep...

  8. Congrats Andi! That's seriously impressive. I hope you got some good sleep :)

  9. Andi, I'm rubbish at multitasking so I've only just got around to dropping by my fellow read-a-thoners to stare in awe at their challenge performance. I look at yours in more awe than most others - 8. I mean come on. I did 3!
    Seriously though Congratulations on a remarkable effort

  10. Well done Andi! I didn't have time to check in over the the weekend, so catching up on your amazing reading was the perfect way to start a cloudy Monday morning in London!

  11. Thanks, Seachanges! I don't do it often, but it was nice to indulge.

    Thanks, Grayskyeyes! I got lots and lots of sleep yesterday.

    Thank ya, Nik!

    Thanks, Rob! SEveral of them were children's or young adult, so that sort of accounts for the pure mass of titles. lol

    Thanks, Logophile! I hope you see a title or two you can't resist.

  12. Awesome job Andi! I am just starting to get back to my normal schedule, man was I tired. But it was way too much fun :)
