✓ Number of pages read

I spent 24 hours reading for this RaT divided between two 12 hour days. During that time I read 5 complete books and part of 3 others for a total of 1524 pages. My RaT record is located HERE.

Optional Add'l Info to Share:
✓ Did you find it fun or was it more of a chore to complete?
It was fun though it was hard to only read for 12 hours. I didn't realize how often I stop to do something else for a short period as a change of pace once I finish a book.
✓ Is this your first time participating in a Read-a-Thon? If so, would you participate again or was once is enough? If not, how did this year's RAT compare?
This is my third RaT. I will be participating again next year as I always find the RaTs fun.
✓ Did you choose RAT books in advance? If so, were you able to read all of the books you'd set aside?
I mood read for this RaT, mostly reading one author (under her name and her pen name) to try and get caught up on some series.
✓ Did you have a favorite reading spot?
I tended to shift between my desk, my recliner, my beanbag chair and my bed.
✓ Did you find it difficult to stick to your reading schedule? If so, how'd ya overcome it?
I did find it difficult to stick to the schedule but told myself that it was a once a year thing and I needed to buckle down and do it. I reminded myself how much I enjoy these RaTs and how mad at myself I would be if I didn't finish.
✓ Did you discover a new series, author or genre? No
✓ Did you read alone or with partner? alone
✓ Which book format(s) did you use for your RAT? Audio, Paperback/Hardcover (DTB), or eBook OR did you use a mix of formats? always kindle books for me

RAT 2018


Optional Add'l Info to Share:
✓ Did you find it fun or was it more of a chore to complete? It's always fun!

✓ Is this your first time participating in a Read-a-Thon? If so, would you participate again or was once is enough? If not, how did this year's RAT compare? I have done several. I felt that I didn't read as much as I have in the past. I will absolutely do it again.

✓ Did you choose RAT books in advance? If so, were you able to read all of the books you'd set aside? I used other challenges as my reading list.

✓ Did you have a favorite reading spot? I spent several weeks at my sister's house as she recovered from a hip replacement. I found that I liked the chaise on her sectional sofa.

✓ Did you find it difficult to stick to your reading schedule? If so, how'd ya overcome it? I always read before going to bed. I didn't get as much reading done during the day as I had planned.

✓ Did you discover a new series, author or genre? I read three books by authors(J.D. Tyler, Peg Cochran and Ellie Alexander) that I had not read in the past.

✓ Did you read alone or with partner? I read with a couple of dogs stretched across me. This was new to me because I have cats. Faith is a pit bull mix that thinks she is a lap dog. All 70 pounds of her!

✓ Which book format(s) did you use for your RAT? Audio,
Paperback/Hardcover (DTB), or eBook OR did you use a mix of formats? I used a mixture. The majority were paperbacks or hardcovers. I started listening to Primal Law but couldn't keep things straight in my mind. I had to buy the book to read it.

Steph (angel4492) | 29486 comments Glad y'all enjoyed this years RAT and plan to join us again in the future.

I can so relate, albeit on a much smaller scale, Cheryl. One of my cats is 21lbs and he totally thinks of himself as an itty bitty kitten. ;)
