The Readathon’s Conclusion

Got to say, I got a lot of reading done this past week. And I also have to say that it wasn’t actually as much as I thought I’d get done. 2 of the days were half days of having the apartment to myself, and 2 more of those days involved having to go out and do stuff and thus interrupt my reading groove. Had those things been different, I might have been able to get another book finished, beginning to end.

Thought what I did get done was nothing to sneeze at. Let’s check the goals list:

 

So in all, I finished 5 books (though 3 of them were already partly read, but 1 of those was 2 books in one anyway), and my reading goals for A Game of Thrones were met. And even if I didn’t read everything I set out to (and between you and me, I didn’t think I could, but I wanted to plan for it just in case), I still read quite a bit, got done some stuff that needed to get done, and had a very enjoyable few days doing it.

And now if you’ll excuse me, I have about a zillion reviews to write up. Shame I won’t be spending a bunch of days in this coming week alone and with few distractions, because then I’d challenge myself to a write-a-thon just to get caught up here!

  1. Well done, it’s been fun following your readathon. I’m really impressed too! They say if you accomplish 80% of your goals you’re doing a good job, its also means you’re setting good goals that make you stretch.

    • Glad you had fun following my progress. :)

      And yeah, I figured it would be better to set higher goals and not achieve them than to set lower goals, achieve them, and then have no idea what to do with the rest of my time. Telling myself, “You’re going to do [thing]” seems to have a greater positive effect on me than, “You’re doing to do [this], [that], or maybe [the other] if you feel like it.”

    • Freaking loving Game of Thrones! Even after the first chapter I could tell that it was exactly the kind of epic fantasy that I’d been craving for so long.
