Guys, this readathon has been a fabulous experience. Definitely had stamina issues, whined about being tired, and listened to audiobooks for the better part of the last 8 hours, but I don’t regret staying up for 24 hours at all (actually, I don’t know how I feel about that yet. I’ve been book delirious since midnight). The mini-challenges were great, even though I didn’t participate in all of them, I did win one (it was one of the earlier ones, I just didn’t notice until 4 a.m.). They were so creative!
Props to all of the hosts: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Goodreads, the Readathon website, and all of the mini-challenges. Fantastic way to harness the bookish community.
Cheerleaders: You guys did good. GIFs on POINT. Ridiculously impressive. Team Penguin, you guys were trailblazers!
That’s all I’ve got, mostly because I am ready to go the fuck to bed. Hope everyone enjoyed this edition of Readathon! See y’all in October, mark your calendars! As for now, goodnight!
