Although I was a bit disappointed on missing out on so many hours of the read-a-thon I was able to do comparable page numbers to what I have done previously. This the latest I have stayed up for the read-a-thon. It also is my 2nd longest amount of time I have spend reading for the read-a-thon. What I love so much is that each read-a-thon is different. I have not had the same read-a-thon experience twice. It keeps it new and exciting and I will be participating in October! 

Did I mention that despite spending the day reading yesterday I still managed to take 6,414 steps and walk 2.88 miles.
