Ides of March, Spring Into a Good Book, and Pick Your Thon Wrap Up

I have been horrible at posting wrap up posts for readathons so I'm doing a combination wrap up for the readathons I participated in March. 

I read a total of 503 pages in 13 hours and 12 minutes in 7 days. This was by far my best readathon in a while. I finally found a book that I wanted to sit and read all day. I should have picked up a Kristin Hannah book sooner. I think I finally got out of my reading slump. I read an average of 71 pages per day and an average of 1 hour and 53 minutes per day so just round it up to 2 hours. I think that is fantastic progress. I'm so happy for The Book Monsters for hosting this readathon. 
I finished the last bit of How to Love by Katie Cotugno during this readathon and started and finished True Colors by Kristin Hannah
I started the first bit of Four Friends by Robyn Carr the last night of the readathon
I read a total of 267 pages in 4 hours and 49 minutes in 7 days. That is an average of 38 pages per day and about 41 minutes. It wasn't the greatest readathon, but I did manage to make progress while completing my homework. I think I was in kind of a mini reading slump at this time. 
I finished the last bit of Charlotte's Web by E.B. White

I started How to Love by Katie Cotugno and fell in love right away. 
I read 453 pages in 9 hours and 39 minutes in 5 days. This was at the tail end of my spring break so I was reading as much as possible before returning back to school. That is about 90 pages per day and 1 hour and 55 minutes per day.  

I finished the tail end of 6 Rainier Drive by Debbie Macomber while watching High School state girls basketball with my dad and started Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell the following day. 

After finishing Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell I jumped into Charlotte's Web by E.B. White and I have slowly been working my way Through a Tangled Wood by various authors on my computer. I'm still reading this one. 


  1. Charlotte's web has always been a favorite of mine!
