I’m smiling as I write this post because my reading results for the Readathon are pathetic (a measly 302 pages with only 1 book finished), but I had an amazing time! Since I was a cheerleader, I probably spent way to much time on Twitter blabbing, but that was fun too. I talked to so many new-to-me bloggers. It also didn’t help that most of the day was taken up with the Blue Jays Game.
I understand when people say they don’t get readathons because they already read as much as they can every day. But there’s something about the community spirit and party atmosphere of Readathon that I find both energizing and inspiring. Yes, I could stay home and cheer for the Blue Jays, but when you’re in the stadium with the crowd cheering, high-fiving and stuffing your face with popcorn it’s the best high. That’s what the Readathon is like just with book bloggers.
How was your Readathon? Did you meet all of your reading goals?
