I Participated In Another Readathon. Here’s How It Went

Last weekend, I participated in the Stay At Home Readathon. This is actually my second one that I’ve participated in ever, and this one didn’t go as well as the first.

You can check out my TBR, but it’s oblivious that I was too ambitious. I knew right off of the bat that I wouldn’t be able to read four books in four days. But, I ended up reading one full book during this time, and finished up the current book and audiobook that I was reading. And, since the book that I read was something that has been on my TBR for years, I am still pretty proud of myself.


I started off my morning as if I do every morning — with a cup of coffee and a book. I was still finishing up Most Likely by Sarah Watson, and I had to get Sadie done before my audiobook was due back. I was able to get some of the physical book done, and listened to my audiobook throughout the day. That night, I was able to finish my book, and all was well.


I then picked up Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens. I was actually disappointed at first with the book. For me, I thought that the beginning was so slow and I honestly was questioning why this was so popular.

I didn’t read that much that day, and I ended up spending most of my night crocheting while watching the Wedding Year. Reading is something that I don’t want to ever force on myself, so I don’t want to ever feel as though I am forcing myself to do it.


Saturday was a pretty productive reading day. I ended up finishing Where the Crawdads Sing, and I am so glad that I stuck with it. From page 100 on, I wanted to know what was happening more than anything else. I felt pretty accomplished with this, and hoped to get some reading done on my next book.


I didn’t get much reading done again on Sunday. I did read about 40 pages of Yes No Maybe So, and loved it. However, since Sunday is my errand/laundry day, I wasn’t expecting to get a lot done.

Overall, I think that I did make some progress on my reading goals. I loved my progress and I was happy that I did get a mashed potato book read.
