Reading At Night Final Challenge Update

You may remember I challenged myself at the beginning of February to read a half an hour every night before I go to bed. I have really been enjoying this challenge and I have been reading more and more thanks to it. Reading at night has just become a habit now. I look at the clock and see it is near time to go to bed and get my book out and read. This is my final update for the reading at night challenge.

I'm not going to put what books I was reading because you will see them all again in my February wrap up. I will just put the time reading and how many pages I read.

Feb 18
9:10 to 11:03 pg 403 to pg 458

Feb 19
8:40 to 9:10 pg 263 to pg 274

Feb 20
9:00 to 11:10 pg 219 to 313

Feb 21
10:15 to 10:45 pg 97 to pg 107

Feb 22
11:00 to 11:30 pg 134 to pg 141

Feb 23
9:00 to 10:00 pg 223 to pg 263

Feb 24
9:00 to 11:30 pg 334 to pg 376

Feb 25
10:30 to 11:00 pg 0 to pg 14

Feb 26
10:30 to 11:00 pg 36 to pg 46

Feb 27

Feb 28
I did not read at night on this day because I went to a my school girl's basketball game. They were competing against a tough team in regions and we ended up winning by a point at the last second. We will be competing in Girls State Basketball Championships next weekend. I'm very excited for our girls team and will be glued to the TV next weekend. 

Total Pages Read: 294 pages
Total time read: 543 minutes 9 hours 3 minutes

Cumulative number of pages read: 610 pages
Cumulative time read: 1288 minutes 21 hours 28 minutes

Overall I would count this challenge as a success. It got me to read more pages at night and I ended up staying up late many nights to continue to read. 

Thanks for reading



  1. That is cool, I started timing myself to see how long it took me to finish a book, I'm a slow reader and I was taking a week per book. But I have to put more than half an hour a night otherwise I don't finish them

    1. Oh please don't take it that way. I'm not that fast of a reader and the page numbers don't match up. I already read a good amount during the day, but I find that I don't read at night as much so I started this challenge so I would read more at night. I finish about a book a week also except I read about 2 a week during February due to the days we had off school.
