My Read-A-Thon ended up being more of a Read-A-Dash...short and quick. I'm blaming moving for the air-headed disorganization that almost made me miss the whole thing. With no prep time there were many interruptions and, worst of all, few snacks. After my first read-a-thon, I realized that I'm not in college any more and all-nighters just aren't happening, so I usually only shoot for twelve hours. My total this time was closer to four, plus some time spent checking out mini-challenges other participant's blogs.
On the up side, I elected to read to benefit the Leukemia Research Foundation. My original pledge was five cents per page. I completed a measly 200 pages, for a total of $10. I have decided to go ahead and make the full $25 donation which was my goal. If you would like to add your donation, you can give on-line, by phone or by regular mail.
