What I Learned:
Reading during the day is unnatural.
Reading during the day makes me sleepy; reading at night keeps me awake. I still can't figure that one out! I never *ever* get tired at night when I'm reading. But during the day, after thirty minutes of reading, I'm off to napville.
Reading this many books can be straining to the eyes.
It's smarter (healthier) to only compete with yourself.
It's best to double-check the rules. I learned *after* the challenge ended (for me) that up to three graphic novels were allowed. D'oh! Why didn't I get that memo? Now I'm really really wishing that I could go back in time.
