WRAP UP:  Goals/Thoughts
I did meet my initial goals, however, since it never fails when I sign up for a Read-A-Thon, RL interferes,  I set my goals at a minimum.  I was hoping that this would  be an incentive for me to read more and spend less time in front of the computer.  It did, except I was also hoping that I would spend much more time reading than I did.  But due to work associated with Partners In Crime Tours, I had to put work before pleasure.

I want to thank everyone who organized and hosted the Read-A-Thon, the daily challenges and giveaways.  Kudos!!  It was well done and I am looking forward to the next one!!!!!

  1. Good luck with your goals and have fun ;)

  2. Good luck with your reading goals this week! Of course, I’m participating. There was never any doubt, was there!?

  3. I did just the opposite – I set myself ridiculously high goals to motivate myself to read more, and it worked. I’m glad you met your goals and enjoyed the readathon.

  4. Yay! Glad you had a good week. Hope to see you in January ;)
