Today was the most successful day I’ve had all week and I even woke up two hours later than I wanted to. I participated in reading sprints, I joined the Twitter chat, and I got tons of reading done.
My first sprint was for 30 minutes and I ended up reading 39 pages. My second sprint was 35 pages in 30 minutes. My third sprint was 26 pages in 21 minutes. My fourth and final sprint was 45 minutes and I read 60 pages plus finished my book. The sprints are fun and a great way to meet other people. It’s not a race with other readers, just a way to get ourselves to sit down and read for consecutive minutes. It’s also easier for people on busier schedules because if they see they only have to read for 20-30 minutes, they will likely join. I recommend these to everyone that is in the read-a-thon. You can find one going on basically every half hour or hour.
The Twitter chat was awesome. I met tons of new readers and even talked to @BookBender about potatoes. I knew the Twitter chat would be fun, but I didn’t know it would be as funny as it was. The hour went by so quickly, so hopefully I can do another one before the week ends. I didn’t do the challenge because I couldn’t think of any good books, but maybe there will be one tomorrow that catches my eye.
