#HSreathon (High Summer Read-A-Thon) Wrap-up

  
 So I did okay but not what I had hoped to achieve
I finished:
In the ShadowsBrothers, Bullies and Bad GuysSinners, Survivors and Saints (Boulton Quest, #2)
And made progress in:
Graduation Day (The Testing, #3)1001 Children's Books You Must Read Before You Grow UpEntwined (Dark Souls, #2)
Shawndirea (Chronicles of Aetheaon: Book I)Salvation

Total pages read for the readathon= 972
  I made my minimum goal (700 pages)  However I had really hoped to read more (2000 pages).  Yet life loves to throw curve balls at you when you least want them.  Still I made a decent dent in my reading pile.  I can't say that it is much shorter because books have been added to the 'pile' since the readathon started but at least I don't feel as guilty adding them :).  However my review book ratio is less.  I finished 3 titles, and made progress in 3 others (1 of which will be finished within the next day-VERY close to finishing).  Yet only took 2 titles in.  So that helps.  
Pro to this readathon- I got a decent amount of reading done.  The concept for a read-a-thon really had me stepping up my reading, allotting more time, etc
Con- I wish for more interaction.  People engaging on twitter or stopping by the posts and commenting it always seem to inspire me to read more.  While there was a twitter party I was not available and otherwise no one engaged there really.  Same with the posts.  Those that commented were already followers and not necessarily fellow participants.  Not to say I was much better.  I replied and favorited a few others' tweets but didn't blog hop much.  Maybe a little more of a push to encourage our fellow readers would be a good thing in the future! 
To those that did participate, I will try to make a few rounds to wrap-up posts but if I miss yours be sure to leave me a link so I can stop by! :)
