Dewey’s (very late) readathon wrap-up


Hey guys,

This is my official wrap-up post. I gotta say I was really readathon-tuckered out this time. So much so that writing my final post and doing my little data analysis sounded way too daunting on Sunday. So, here it is now!

My total number of pages this time around was 1052 1051 (tired brain and math don’t work, so I apologize to my Twitter followers who wrongly believed I read 1052 pages per my last tweet of the night).

I finished one novel, Six of Crows, one poetry collection, Milk and Honey, and one graphic novel, The Doll’s House. I also made it about 1/3 through another novel Salem’s Lot.

I had a wonderful time hosting the readathon over on Dewey’s blog and Twitter page. I also had lively discussions on the Goodreads group during my hosting hour.

As you can see in my little graph, I had a bit of a dip during hours 9 and 11 as those were my social media and hosting hours. I wrote two blurbs (here and here) on Dewey’s blog during that time as well. I didn’t get much sleep the night before (I know, bad!) and thus I had a much harder time staying awake. As you can see around hour 16 my reading started to decline quite a bit. In fact, I even took a nap during hours 18 and 19 and still started to nod off over my book around hour 20/21. All in all, though, I am only slightly under my reading count from October’s readathon, so I am very pleased with the results.

So, all that’s left at this point is my wrap-up survey. Here it goes:

1. Which hour was most daunting for you? As I already say, I had a pretty steep decline starting around hour 18.
2. Tell us ALLLLL the books you read! Six of Crows (finished), Milk and Honey (finished), The Doll’s House (finished), and Salem’s Lot (1/3 through)
3. Which books would you recommend to other Read-a-thoners? Definitely Milk and Honey. This poetry collection really caught me by surprise.
4. What’s a really rad thing we could do during the next Read-a-thon that would make you smile? I feel like fun polls on Twitter would be really entertaining.
5. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? Would you be interested in volunteering to help organize and prep? P(participation) = 1.


Well, there we are. I am already looking forward to the next readathon, which will take place on October 20, 2018. Mark your calendars!
