With a bit of weekend still before me, I was able to give twenty-seven hours to the challenge and read seven books. While there were some books I didn’t love, there was nothing I hated either. I pulled together a decent variety of styles and reading levels, though this year I did go for longer books. Which was fine. I also didn’t reduce my to-be-read pile by much since I felt the need to bring home completely different books from the library. Oh, well.
I did like focusing on books that I had heard a lot about, so that I felt less compelled to write reviews and could focus on reactions. Being sleep-deprived has never aided my reviewing — I always put off the posting part — and framing the posts as thoughts instead was rather freeing. Though sometimes I do need to force myself to stop reading, and start posting. Butt In Chair, as they say.
At this point, I could easily keep going, which is a nice way to end. I will continue with checking in on all the participants over the next ten hours, and will be back with a winner on Monday. Thanks to everyone for playing along again!
