I made a mistake. A bad one.
I’ve been dutifully keeping track of the time I’ve spent reading and blogging as the days have passed, but I haven’t been tallying those times up. Now, at the end of it, when I hardly have any intelligible thoughts left in my brain, I have to do math.
There’s nothing I hate more than math. I like mayo more than math. I like waking up before dawn more than math. I like Rebel Belle more than math. (Okay, that was harsh. Of course, I do. It wasn’t so bad that it deserves to be compared to math. I’m sorry for my unkind words; they were spoken from a place of sleepiness).
Here’s what I came up with:
Total Books Read: 4 books
Total Pages Read: 1,262 pages
Total Hours Committed: a little over 18 hours (including 6.5 hours of blogging, converted to one hour of reading).
Start Time to End Time: 7am Friday to 7am Sunday (I actually quit around 1am on Sunday morning).
1. Renegade Magic (Kat, Incorrigible: Book 2) by Stephanie Burgis
2. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
3. Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins
4. We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson
High Point: We Have Always Lived in the Castle.
Other High Points: Meeting new bloggers. Gaining traffic. Seeing pictures of people’s pets. Getting recs for The Girl Who Fell to Earth and Diverse Energies.
Low Point: Rebel Belle.
Other Low Points: Doing a google image search for banana nutella crepes and then panicking because I didn’t think I had either bananas or nutella with which to satisfy the subsequent craving (as it turned out, I had both! I guess that was a high point, too!)
It’s been a blast. I hope you guys had as much fun reading my posts as I did reading yours! And I hope you’ll come back and visit No Boys Allowed Reviews sometime soon! In the near future, I’ll be posting reviews of The House at the End of Hope Street written by myself and the four other gals who normally run this blog.
