It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

Back to School RaT wrap-up




Back to School
Read-a-Thon
Wrap-Up


Thank you to Melissa at Must Read Faster, this was fun.

My original post

My goal was to read 1,520 pages.

Did I make it? No.

If I had finished Beautiful Sacrifice I would have met my goal, and then some. I took a nap after donating blood instead. This is the third RaT that I've had to same goal and missed. Looks like I really need to put some effort into the next RaT if I want 1,500 pages!

Final Stats: 7 books finished, 1 book started, no reviews. 1,282 pages read. 1 re-read, 1 non-fiction, 3 short stories.

See you next year!

edit: ahem, so I typed this up upstairs. Beautiful Sacrifice was sitting on the desk so I'm sure that's the only reason I remembered I was reading it (sleep muddled?) because we I went downstairs and sat in my favorite reading chair.... Running on Empty by Marshall Ulrich (47 of 244 - without multiple Appendix) and the Double the Pleasure anthology (on page 174).

sigh

1,282 plus 174 plus 47 equals ... 1,503. Much closer to my goal but 325 were from three unfinished books.

Revised Final Stats: 7 books finished, 3 books started, no reviews. 1,503 pages read. 1 re-read, 1 non-fiction, 3 short stories.
