Finished with the 48 Hour Book Challenge

So my 48 hour time frame is officially over. I stupidly started it at a bad time though, because I didn't actually start reading until about 5 hours after I posted the start of it. Oh well, I'll know better next time! I managed to read for 15 hours (1.5 of which were spent writing reviews and networking), which is better than I thought I'd do. I was aiming for 20, but I'm proud of what I did manage to accomplish. 20 will be my goal for next year! :) I finished 3 complete books, and am 3/4 of the way done with another. That adds up to be 1,256 pages.

Since my decision to participate in this was completely on impulse, meaning that I had no time to plan strategically or clear my weekend for it, I'd say I didn't do too bad. I had a lot of fun participating, and managed to lessen my TBR pile by a few books. Not bad at all! Congratulations to everyone else who's finished so far, and good luck to those of you who haven't reached the finish yet. I will definitely participate in this again, as long as I remember about it.
