  10. Thank you for all your hard work and organization!! This challenge truly rocks! I tried to stay up as late as I could, but fell asleep right in the middle of Hour 16 (11:30 central time). I still had a blast spending the entire day reading and blog-hopping. Looking forward to the final posts.

  11. Thanks to everyone for putting in so much time and energy. This was an amazingly fun experience.

    I can’t wait for the next readathon.

    …I will need some more sleep first, though.

  12. AWESOME job! I will anxiously await the dates for the spring read-athon so that I can clear my calendar in advance. I would hate to miss a single one of these glorious events.

  13. It’s the next morning and I’ve slept through the night though I did finish the book I was in the middle of first thing. This was really fun! Thank you for hosting, the mini-challenges, the cheerleading and all the work that went into it.

  14. Wow!! Thank you so much!! I didn’t meet my goals, but it was fun just the same! I’ll be back for more the next time around for sure!!!

  15. Thanks, everyone, and thanks to Eva for organizing the cheerleaders. Great job, everybody! I had fun cheerleading in my first Read-A-Thon. Hope to be back next year!

  16. Thank you ladies so much for organizing and hosting everything! You did an absolutely amazing job and I hope you are all taking a huge break today. =)

  17. thanks to the organizers Hannah, Nymeth, Eva, Trish!! There are many more of you — assistants, mini-challenge providers, prize donors, cheerleaders — to thank also.

    I’m looking forward to the next read-a-thon already!

  18. Thanks so much to the organizers and the volunteers. I had a grand time and now that I’m not pushing myself to spend *so much* time reading books, I’ll take time to visit the blogs of many of the participants to pick up ideas for how I can organize myself better when the next one comes around.

  19. I just want to tell all the organizers that you did a wonderful excellent job. This was my first time participating and it was wonderful. You did great, and I hope to help out in the future! A big pat on the back to all!

  20. I’ve been trying all week to find out more about Dewey and so far haven’t been able to get through to the site (linked from the ABOUT page). I’d love to read her blog and find out more about this inspiring person. Can you advise? Thank you!

  21. Thanks to all the organizers and volunteers for a wonderful Read-A-Thon. My whole family participate – that’s five adults and two children. We turned it into a family holiday and we all agreed we want to do it again next time. So, a big THANK YOU from my family to all of you.

  22. This is a great idea, and I’m sorry I missed it this month! I’ll definitely be participating in April; by then I’ll have my book review site launched.

    Congratulations to everyone who participated!
