I finished EXCLUSIVELY YOURS. Somehow, I had hoped that it wouldn't take quite as long, so I had postponed lunch until I finished, and was famished by the end. Therefore, I took an afternoon break, instead of starting my next book while I ate.
Sunday 2pm - 5pm
Total Hours Actually Spent Reading: 3

I jumped right into the next book in the Kowalski series, UNDENIABLY YOURS by Shannon Stacey; started and finished this in a much more timely manner than I read the first one.

I know that it was down to the end, and I really did manage to accomplish much reading, but I figured that I would start on the next book that I really wanted to read for pleasure, HOW TO SEDUCE A DUKE by Kathryn Caskie. I was able to get 85 pages read before the end of the read-a-thon.

Overall, I am really happy with the dent that I made in my personal TBR. Though I started off the read-a-thon slowly, I accomplished my goal of prioritizing books that had languished too long on my bookshelf. I think I also might be more motivated to pick up the other books that were originally on my read-a-thon to-read list that I didn't have a chance to fit in.
Check out the other two posts that I made during the read-a-thon to see my original list of books, and my progress.
Did you take the challenge? How did you do?

I'm a writer, aspiring to that higher plane of becoming a published author. I love books in all their forms, be it electronic or print (though obviously, there is nothing like the texture of a book in my hands!). I want to share that love and meet others who feel the same.
