48-HBC Finish Line!

Hours read (including audiobook): 19:36
Hours blogging: 3:17
Hours networking: 0:54
Total: 23:47

Woohoo! For a 48-hour period in which I had to work eight of those hours, just under 24 hours of reading is not shabby at all. The audiobook certainly helped. I found that I really battled the sleepies on Friday and Saturday nights, but today was much better.

I didn't have any marathon-length books this year, but I also only had a couple that were fast reads. Most sat pretty comfortably in the 250-400 pages range. This helped out because I got a regular rhythm going, particularly today when I could wake up and just hit the books.

I didn't network as much this year. I think a big part of that was because I was out of loop for most of one day. I did miss that, and I hope to do better next year.

With nine books finished, that's at least ninety dollars going to charity. I'll wait a couple of days to count up comments on the blog and see how much the final total is.

 So now I have nine (count 'em!) reviews to schedule throughout my summer, and a reminder that yes, this review-writing stuff is really not that hard when you buckle down to it. A valuable thing to remember, always.

Another great year! Thanks to Ms Yingling for hosting, and everyone who joined in the adventure!

Thanks for continuing the charity bit. I'll be sending some money to RIF just because I should! The social networking is the fun part-- the reading is the meat and potatoes, and you did a great job on that. Thanks for participating!

What an awesome donation! And that is a fantastic time given that you worked a full shift.

Good for you! I wish I had nine reviews scheduled, but a bunch of the books I read weren't really for review.
