Read-a-Thon wrap-up

Alrighty. The R-A-T (<--- !!!) is ovah, and though I didn't get quite as much done as I would have liked, I certainly made a dent.

So here's what I did accomplish:
  • Completed: Sorcery and Cecilia, Bailey's Day, Share the Love, The Composer is Dead
  • Other reading: most of First Daughter, a bit of Zan Gah, and a bit of Mr Darcy, Vampyre
  • Wrote and posted reviews for Magic Under Glass and  Inside Out
  • Wrote and scheduled reviews for Changeless & I Heart You, You Haunt Me both of which are coming this week ; and Eyes Like Stars, which you'll see at the end of the month (it was a book club read, and I want to include their 2 bits) 
  • Jotted down stuff for reviews of Bailey's Day, The Composer is Dead, and First Daughter
  • Did a little button designing and preliminary sketches for a few more Rat Badges
  • Cleared some books off my shelves.  A full box worth.
  • Did some rearranging of the shelves, including color-coordinating the insane amount of books residing on my cedar chest, and clearing one small shelf to be current to read/review books only.  It makes finding them so much easier.  And it is in my line of sight pretty much all the time I am in my room, so I can see just what I need to get through and get a move on.
  • Worked a bit on going through posts and labeling, bringing them up to date, etc (still have more that needs to be done, for sure)
  • Deleted some useless or unused sidebar stuff)
  • Added Google Analytics so I can keep track of things a bit.
  • Made some to-do lists.  Now I need to use them.

So as you can see, I got a fair amount done, but it was pretty piecemeal, and not nearly as much reading as I would have liked (3 of the 4 finished books are kids books)  I would like to say this was because I was so busy with really important things but the truth is, I was in a BBC mood, and had an impromptu Secret Diary of a Call Girl/Being Human marathon.  So.  Yeah...

But still, I am very glad I participated, especially for the little extras like sharing with you my favorite 3 bloggers or my top 6 of the year, etc.

Now back to the marathon!  Er, reading.  I mean reading...


  1. I was about the same reading wise. I had a few more, but they were graphic novels.. I spent a lot of time cleaning up and wish I had more time. Alas, I will have to wait for summer! :)

    Great job! :-D

  2. I love your honesty! LOL. When the BBC calls one cannot ignore its shout.

  3. It sounds like you accomplished a lot to me! Nothin' wrong with a little BBC.


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
