- How would you assess your reading overall?
All things considered, I think I did pretty well! I definitely struggled with focusing during the first portion of the readathon, but I got back on track during the second half. I managed to finish 2 books (Flyaway by Kathleen Jennings, which is technically a novella, and Blood Heir by Ilona Andrews), for a total of 534 pages, and listened to 2 hours of Broken (in the Best Possible Way) by Jenny Lawson on audiobook. It definitely wasn’t my most productive readathon ever, but I’m really happy with having finished 2 books.
2. Did you have a strategy, and if so, did you stick to it?
Sort of! I stuck to my plan of reading outside in the park for the first portion of the readathon, and really enjoyed the gorgeous spring weather. I did, however, think I would be jumping between books a lot more, not necessarily finishing any but making progress on several. Instead, I ended up starting and finishing 2 books after pretty much reading them straight through. I also thought I’d probably make progress on books I’d already started, but instead I opted to start new books.
3. What was your favorite snack?
I don’t really like to snack while I’m reading, because I’m always paranoid about getting my books messy! I did have some leftover pizza for dinner, though.
