  8. I packed it in pretty early and got a good night's sleep, so I'm doing some of my "post-game" bloghopping now, since my Google reader is crying under the weight of everybody's Read-a-thon posts!

    Glad you had a great 'thon - enjoy your rest!

  12. Ah, yes, the reviews of the books read during the Readathon. That is always a challenge. I think that last time it took me at least 2 months.

  20. Congrats on raising the money for your charity! I'm definitely going to have to use audio books next time! I slept four hours when I was done reading and then I took about an hour nap this afternoon and I think that's going to tide me over to bed time. But I am dragging today!

  21. Thanks for visiting and following my blog. I love new followers. I'm following yours now, too. A read-a-thon is a wonderful idea. That would be so much fun. I have such a hard time putting down good books. Last night I was up till 2 am. I can't do that tonight...have to work tomorrow, but it will be hard to stop if I start.

  22. You did amazing!!! Weren't you suprised how physically demanding it was to read for that long? I know I was!!! And now we have all these book reviews to write! ARGH! ; )

    And congrats on raising so much money for a good cause. That is terrific. I must consider doing that for the next one.

    Now go rest and get some sleep! You deserve it!

    And, also, I wanted to thank you so much for stopping by and cheering me on during the event! I really appreciate it -- especially since you were reading too. I think I might try to be a cheerleader next time!

  23. You did a great job Diane. You should start resting now. ♥

  24. You rock! And well done with the fund raising. Bless you!

  25. I was amazed when you said during the event that you were listening to an audiobook and reading at the same time. What a feat!

    I don't remember you saying this was a fundraiser or, more likely, I wasn't paying attention.

    Nevertheless, congratulations on both.

  26. You did a great job reading and with the fundraiser!

  27. I'm so glad you had a good time and that you raised so much money. Good going all the way around. Now spend the week catching back up on sleep! ;-)

  29. Great job getting 13 hours in -- that's fantastic!

  30. Wow, good for you. You are a fast reader too. I think I would have dosed off...hehehe

    ReplyDelete
  31. You did a fantastic job at the readathon! I don't think I read as long as you did, it's a little difficult to manage your time with all the different things to do. But I learned how better to do things next time.

    That's wonderful that you raised money for Pancreatic Cancer. Next time I'd like to try raising some money.

    The readathon really wiped me out, I guess you too,uh? I didn';t sleep a lot on Sunday but I fell asleep very early Sunday night!
    Love the picture of your sleeping kitty, he has the right idea!
