Thank you so much. I hope this first Read-a-thon goes well too. I may have missed it but is there any other social media accounts associated with this group or a hashtag?

We do not currently, but you are welcome to use #HookedOnBooks if you'd like. I do sometimes. Would seeing other social media and #s be something you'd be interested in seeing?

I think it would be a great idea to consider at least a linked Twitter account.

Nicole Dunton (willowstarserenity) Well it's 0:44 for me! For those of you still reading, go go go! For those of you who are already past midnight, how'd it go? You read as much as you wanted to? It's been fun! I can't wait to hang out with y'all next month! Thank you for joining!


message 37: by Trisha (new)

Trisha | 423 comments Thanks, Nicole. I read more than I expected so the readathon was good. Though I was disappointed with my book choice The Memory Box. I had wanted to read it for ages, it started well but became weird. Without the readathon I might not have bothered to finish it.

I've had many books like that. I was so excited to read them. Got antsy to just read them above all but kept my patience. And then I finally read it and I'm like meh about it. You're stronger than I am. I would have picked up another book anyways!

Awe! I'm glad to hear it! I'm the same way with the readathons! Hope you join in next month!


message 41: by Aindrea (new)

Aindrea (the_book_monger) I finished my goals of finishing The Elegance of the Hedgehog and Fruits Basket volume 3. Even with a raging migraine. All in all I would say pretty successful for my first readathon.

Thanks! I still didn't finish the Humans, but started another book. I'm not finishing many books lately but leaving a trail of started books. Eventually I'll finish them.

Even if you just read a page, it's successful! With a migraine though! Wow I'm very impressed! I hope you're feeling better! I also hope you join us next month! It was great to have you!
