  2. Hellooooo everyone!!! Thank you for all your lovely comments and thanks to the organisers and cheerleaders and everyone. This has been my first read-a-thon but by golly it won’t be my last….I haven’t read all the books for a start!!!!! Let’s be honest – I’ve only read two…plenty left for next time. It was lovely to meet such wonderful bookish friends.

  3. i am going to sleep like a baby tonight!

    i can’t believe i had a book in hand for 24 hours straight. this was an awesome experience!

    thank you sooo much to everyone that made it happen!

  4. Well, I’m finally turning in a challenge on the early side. I’ve missed the deadlines on several but am getting the hang of this. Thanks to everyone who participated in this — I enjoyed myself immensely. See you in blogland and, of course, at the fall RaT.

  5. Less than an hour to go~

    Just posted my reply to the End of Event Meme, then back to my cheerleading program. 😉

    I’ve had a blast~ <3

  6. I want to thank to everyone who cheered, commented, organized and did something to participate in the read-a-thon. This was my first time and I soo hope I can join the next time. I loved it!!
    I wanted to finish 3 books but I only finished 2 books, so I’m a little bit disappointed but nonetheless I’m still proud of myself =)
    I’ve just finished my second books and written the final challenge so I’m off to bed.
    And the sun is shining in Atlanta,Georgia….

  7. Not long left now. i don’t want it to end, despite how much I want and need sleep!
    I posted the End of Event meme, because I am not sure if I am going to finish my audiobook in time for the end.
    I can’t wait for the next readathon though 😀
    Thank you for the wonderful 24 hours!

  8. Congrats everyone! Huge thank you to the organizers, mini-challenge hosts, & cheerleaders! (and everyone who commented or cheered on through twitter!)

  9. Thank you, Thank you! I thoroughly enjoyed this Read-a-Thon even though I didn’t put in as many minutes or read as many pages as in last October. I’ve posted my End of Event Meme and will be making a couple more posts with comments and observations.

  10. Thank you a million times over to all of the hosts, challenge writers, fantastic fellow readers and amazing cheerleaders! I can’t wait to do this again in October!!!

  11. This was my first Read-A-Thon, and I am really impressed with how organized everything was and how much fun I had. I already look forward to the next one. Great Job to all who took part, especially those who had a hand in organizing the challenges and cheers!

    Until next time. 😉

  12. I am looking forward to this read-a-thon. I have never done anything like this. Should be fun. Meanwhile, I will see if I can get a few more peeps to join.
