Hour 24: Closing Survey and Final Totals

Hi readers! I decided to dip out early again but I got some good sleep and that is what matters haha. Time for the wrap-up survey!

Closing Survey

How would you assess your reading overall? I did pretty well this year! I used audiobooks part of the time so real life didn't get too much in the way for me at all.

Did you have a strategy, and if so, did you stick to it? Not really haha. I just wanted to finish a couple books I was in the middle of, and I did!

What was your favorite snack? Muddy Buddies for sure.

Wanna volunteer for our next event? Stay tuned for the recap post! I am alllllllways up for volunteering! Come join me!

I ended up finished 2 books. I finished Your New Money Mindset: Create a Healthy Relationship with Money by Brad Hewitt in paperback and A Lifelong Love by Gary Thomas on audiobook. I did start another book and its companion study guide; that review will be up by the end of May for the blog tour! Thanks for following along this year, friends!

Hour 16: Mid-Event Survey and wrapping up...

Hi friends! I had really hoped to make it to the end this year but I'm getting a headache already, and I have an early appointment tomorrow that is only 3 hours after the end of the readathon. Sleep will be needed haha.

I thought it would be fun to do a semi-wrap up post with the mid-event survey! I will come back and do the closing survey as well, but it may not be until a few hours after the event ends.

Mid-Event Survey:
1. What are you reading right now? Currently, I am reading Parenting First Aid. It's one of my favorites so far!

2. How many books have you read so far? I have finished 2 and am working on the 3rd.

3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon? Honestly, Parenting First Aid is good so far! I am looking forward to digging more into it.

4. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those? Since I have a toddler, yes, there are lots of interruptions haha. I have to just let them happen and get back into reading spurts when I can.

5. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far? It's almost easier this year, since I can read in between projects, but I don't feel like I mentally prepared myself so it's been hard to keep going.

How are you doing so far?

Hour 12: Halfway point

Welcome back! I took a nap during a small break but also finished my audiobook so progress is still happening! I will be moving into my Kindle books now to get a bit of a fresh change. Anyone else using Kindles more than physical books this year?

How is everyone else doing at the halfway point?

Hour 9: Took a blogging break

Welcome back! We had some errands to run, so we took a drive while I continued listening to my audiobook. Plus the toddler needed lunch at some point so we figured a little break was best haha. I'm still not through my audiobook,  but I'm getting close to the end! Hope to have is done in the next couple of hours.

Hour 6: I've been awake HOW long?!

We have hit the quarter-way mark! Yes, that's a thing. I am about half-way through my audiobook at this point. I think I may be nearing the need for my first nap, but I'm trying to hold off until right before the toddler's naptime so I can get some good reading done while he is asleep.

You may not see these updates every hour for a while, as I don't expect to have much of an update for the next couple hours. Follow along on Twitter for highlights!

Hour 5: Real life slows me down

Happy hour 5! I am still working through my audiobook. My toddler is now awake so I'm sure my reading will slow, and I know my update posts will, haha. Does anyone else get a little sad when daily life gets in the way of reading?

Hour 4: Steady pace

Happy hour 4! Since I have been up since 5am, I'm starting to hit a snag in my energy. However, my husband recently woke up so I think a yummy breakfast is incoming! I'm still working away at the audiobook, and thankfully the toddler is still sleeping. How is everyone else doing?
