Roseann | 185 comments I woke up this morning (well 12:30) and immediately remembered that the read-a-thon was happening! Instead of missing out on another, I got up and started reading. So my final tally is:

1 book completed
292 pgs read
4 hours reading

Hopefully, I'll do better next time.

Almost 1000 pages in four hours, whew. I thought I was a fast reader at about 120 pgs an hour, but 250? How do you do it???
