Goodreads Catch-Up Readathon Wrap-Up

GoodReads Readathon Button

I'm doing another read-a-thon! After having lots of fun with the 24-hour Read-a-thon in October and the Wicked Winter Read-a-thon earlier this month, I just had to sign up for Once Upon a Chapter's read-a-thon when I saw it. It's theoretically for people to catch up on their GR reading challenges, but I'm just doing it for fun, since I'm already at least ten books ahead. But after this I'll need a review-a-thon, because I'm already four reviews behind! Ahhh! I do have a whole lot of library books to read, though, so this will be a good way to get all those done before I have to return them.

You can still sign up, just click the button! The Thon starts tomorrow and runs through March 1. I'll just be updating this post with each day's reading and such.

This was a nice little read-a-thon to join. I read seven books and 2844 pages. All of them were decent at worst, and most of them were really pretty great. Thanks to Stephanie for hosting, and see you all next time!


  1. I've always found the idea of a read-a-thon enticing, but I would have trouble finding the time...and even if I did have the time, I'm not sure my attention span could handle sitting for more than a couple hours! Good luck with yours though and enjoy :)

  2. Thanks for joining! I really hope you have fun! I'm probably going to be doing a blogging sort of thing in March. I'm already 4 reviews behind myself. I'll have to get some ideas pegged down though!

  3. I bow to you oh machine. I am trying to finish writing my first novel, so no way I have time to keep up with a read-a-thon.

    Can I just say...BEST.BLOT TITLE. EVER. I wanted to follow you based on that alone and then I read some of your posts. Eventually I'll get to some of the books and recipes you've reviewed/posted, but for now I'll just enjoy reading about them.

    New follower!


I love your comments! I try to respond to them...eventually!

This is now an award-free blog. I love and totally appreciate that you thought of me, but I know myself better than to think I would be organized enough to pass them along, and that doesn't seem fair.

Finally, if you're posting a URL, the code to make it actually link to your site is <.a href="your URL">your text<./a>, without the periods.
