As I announced a little while back, I participated in Liza @ Dusk Angel Reads‘ TBR Jar Readathon. It started July 2nd and ended yesterday right before midnight. Those of you who checked out my weekly WWW-post know I was really struggling with reading. Did I get out of the slump entirely? Maybe partly? Or not at all?
First things first: I refused to pull a book out of my jar [okay, it was a mug] without having finished my current read at that time. So I only really started the readathon on July 4th – two days late. I had eight books in my mug, and ended up pulling out three, but only reading two!
That might sound weird but I was expecting to have way more reading time during the weekend, so I pulled out two books hoping to read both of them. Save to say that didn’t work out. I didn’t even start the third one!
Here are the books I ended up reading.
I read one book for my science fiction-challenge and one for YALC – which is good, right?! Unfortunately I didn’t participate in any reading sprints – blaming my reading slump and reading whenever I had five minutes of time for that. All in all, it didn’t go as well as I’d hoped but I still ended up reading some books. Still proud! As I ought to be since it’s so hard when you’re fighting that dreaded slump.
Did you participate? How many books did you end up reading?
Are there any other readathons you’re going to join in on?
