I googled, but I didn't find one. (If you know more, let me know ;-) )
Here are the victims:
This box was almost full when the read-a-thon started. Not much is left of the carrots, which are victim #1 of the read-a-thon.
This is the pack of cookies that I ate during the read-a-thon - victim #2.
And of course, without some green tea, I wouldn't have made it. These hand-filled tea bags are victim #3.
These are the water bottles that I drunk during the read-a-thon aka victim #4.
And this is the lecithin I took during the read-a-thon. As I meantioned earlier, my concentration is that of a goldfish, but with lecithin it's a bit better. This stuff is available in regular supermarkets, so I don't mind taking it. Lecithin - victim #5.
With all those victims, I managed to read almost three books:
1) Eun-Ah Park: Sweet & Sensitive 4
2) Eun-Ah Park: Sweet & Sensitive 5
3) Tess Gerritsen: The Mephisto Club (finished the hour after the read-a-thon ended)
And I listened to one audio book (for a second time):
Meg Cabot: How To Be Popular
Now I would have been able to read a bit more if I hadn't taken the nap, but in the end it was the best decision.
The total amount of pages I read is 694.
I would have loved to read more pages, but I can live with that.
I realized I could concentrate best with some music in the background, so I eventually figured I'd add the current song to my regular updates. It was a fun part for me to check out what I was listening to while I was writing the update.
For the next read-a-thon (the sooner, the better, if you ask me!), I think I'll go to bed earlier the night before. I'll try to prepare the updates ahead of time and I'll plan in some more computer breaks, so that I don't have the mess with a computer on strike again. Otherwise, I'd probably do everything the same way.
Congratulations, Kathrin! You did a great job. And, I can certainly tell you enjoyed it as well. You'll probably enjoy tonight's sleep as well. Good reading!ReplyDelete
I think they might organise another one in October, but I'm absolutely not sure on that!ReplyDelete
You did a wonderful job with the Read-a-Thon, Kathrin! ^-^ Be proud! Be proud!
Thanks a lot, Lesa :-) I sure slept really well last night!ReplyDelete
Shanra, thanks! I'll be on the lookout for the next read-a-thon.
You did just a fantastic job! I love that you posted the aftermath of the 24 hour period, the carrots that are left, the cookies....its great!ReplyDelete
Usually the read-a-thons are in October and April (it was that way last year at least :)
After I get over my cold I would be ready to just jump right back in though!
Thanks, bethany! I'm not good with making videos, so I figured these pictures for the wrap up post might be a nice idea :-)ReplyDelete
I can't wait until October! It's far too long until then. I wished it was at least once every quarter!
Get well soon!
You did a great job! I demolished tons of food during the read-a-thon and I can't say much of it was healthy. LOLReplyDelete

Thanks a lot, Anna!ReplyDelete
Actually, I made a point in getting the carrots for the read-a-thon. I might as well have sticked to cookies (I had three packages at home, after all!). LOL
