Olympic Readathon: Wrap-up #OlympicReadathon


This is my wrap-up post for the Olympic Readathon!

I exceeded my reading goals! I finished the two books that I wanted to finish. Not only did I also finish the two books that I wanted to start, but I also squeezed in four more!

Books Finished:

Started But Not Finished:

The Unnaturalists
by Tiffany Trent

My page count goal was 600 pages. I knew that I was going to have more listening time than reading time, so I did not factor page count for my audiobooks. Here are my totals for the readathon:

Pages Read This Readathon: 912 pages
Minutes Listened This Readathon: 20 hours and 35 minutes and 23 seconds
Books Finished This Readathon: 8

I exceeded my page count goal by 152%!

As you can see from my Progress Post, I actually could have had an ever higher page count, but I have been really struggling with The Unnaturalists in the second week and have not been reading as much as I usually do.

Thanks again to Random House for hosting this readathon!

See you at the next readathon!

  1. Great job! I ended up hitting 60% of my goal, but I set mine pretty high at 2000 pages. I was pretty proud of that accomplishment. It sure has been read-a-thon season lately.

    Looking forward to my write-a-thon next week!
