Sunday Evening Finish Post -- 45 Hour Book Challenge

          So I'm declaring an end to my challenge.  Even though I didn't read as much as I did the two other years I've participated, I'm pretty pleased with what I've done, especially since I didn't think I'd be able to participate at all this year.
          In all I read 2 books, finished another book that I'd already started, and am more than half-way through The Savage Fortress.  I read for 12 hours and 31 minutes and I blogged and visited other sites for 3 hours and 35 minutes.  I spent more time visiting and commenting other sites this year than I have in the past and I really enjoyed that aspect of the challenge.  I did notice that I'm reading more slowly than I did in the past -- I'm not sure if that's due to age or just general tiredness.
         I look forward to next year's challenge  -- it's a great way to start a summer.

I read slower as the weekend progressed. I'm going with tired rather than age. Anyway, interesting titles that I will check out soon and good job on your reading this weekend.

Hey. I have seen a similar theme in other posts and that is the reading slower. Me too, this year. Not sure why. Agreed on this being a great way to start summer!

Good job! And even if you were slower, you still made it!

I read slower on purpose, to enjoy it more. Totally enjoyed this past weekend! Looking forward to reading your reviews.

I'm glad you had fun reading! I spent a lot more time reading what everyone else was doing this year, myself.

The problem with reading more slowly is that I have so much I need to read and a lot that I want to read. I get frustrated when I realize how behind I am.
