The Challenge Was Yesterday (Renamed Post)

The 24 Hour Read-a-thon Challenge has begun. It started at 8AM Central for those keeping track. I have only been up a few minutes. So I haven't done much yet. And I'm about to head off for breakfast. Will be back in a bit to really begin.

My first review of the day is Into the Woods. I completed this one yesterday. But the time spent blogging should count towards something in this challenge since our time can be split between the two activities. Let's say this one took me about fifteen minutes to review.

My second review of the day is The Talented Clementine. I finished this one in about forty minutes--maybe a few minutes more or less. I wasn't keeping exact track of time. But definitely less than an hour!

Here is my review of An Unlikely Friendship. It took me a little over two hours to read, and probably add on an additional fifteen or twenty to review. The page count is 241.

My review of The Sweet, Terrible, Glorious Year I Truly, Completely Lost It. I read this one is a couple of hours. Maybe closer to two and a half. Anyway, it's done. It is around 295 pages.

Here is my review of Almost Forever by Maria Testa. It was about 70 pages long. It took me about twenty minutes to read and ten minutes to review.

Here is my review of Quicker Than The Eye by Ray Bradbury. I read this one over several days. But I did cover about half of this book today in bursts. It's 261 total. But probably only 100 or 120 were read today...if anyone is keeping score. I probably spent an hour or maybe an hour and a half--off and on--on this one. And it took about twenty or thirty minutes to review.

I have reviewed Secret Club by Chrissie Perry and Angels of a Lower Flight by Susie Scott Krabacher. The second was about 322 pages in length. I had read about 100 or 120 pages before today. The Secret Club book was about 92 pages. The time spent reading Secret Club, about fifteen or twenty minutes. I don't know on the other book, since I read a chapter here and there throughout the day.

I have read but not reviewed A Crooked Kind of Perfect by Linda Urban. It is 211 pages. And took I guess about an hour give or take five minutes.

As far as total time spent. I figure I was awake about 20 hours of the 24. With the last hour being after a good four or five hour sleep. Of those 'awake' hours. I probably read/blogged/participated about sixteen.

I had breakfast too; it's 7 AM here in Mountain time. Not my standard Saturday wake up call!

Congrats on partipating in the read-a-thon! This was so much fun. :) I'm impressed by the detailed reviews you got typed up during the challenge; my brain was pretty mushy, lol.
