It has, unfortunately, come to that time when the LGBT Readathon has ended and we all weep uncontrollably. I mean… *cough* we just carry on with our lives with dignity.
So here’s where I’m going to look at how I did and how I thought the readathon went overall and at the end of the post is the chance for you to link up to your own wrap-ups, if you did/do one!
Firstly though I just want to thank everyone that participated in this readathon.
I’m going to be at work all week and probably going to be busy in the evenings too BUT I am still aiming to read at least two books but I am hoping to actually finish three.
I very rarely meet my goals during readathons but I’m hoping I’ll stick to it this week as I’ve got some SUPER exciting books to read!
I also want to keep updating twitter, to interact lots on twitter and to just enjoy the week!
How I Did
I DID IT.
I actually read two and half books! I am super chuffed about this. I am also really happy because both of the books I read were REALLY good and the last one I’m reading is SO GOOD so far, so I have high hopes for it. It’s also a quick read so I hope to finish it today! Yay!
I kept updating twitter and kept up to date with everyone as best I could too so I’m quite happy about this. Overall I’m feeling very good about my goals!
Books I Read and Started
I can’t even begin to put into words how amazing the chat was. I actually struggled not to cry during and after it. There were SO MANY people, SO MANY thoughts and ideas and it just restored my entire faith in humanity and I know that if we keep shouting, we will only ever be able to help all the LGBT books and real LGBT people. Which is just amazing and wonderful.
I was just seriously overwhelmed and happy. It was such a successful chat and by the end of it we even started trending! I also didn’t get to ask all the questions I had to ask so there will definitely be another one sometime soon.
I’m not sure when yet but as soon as I do, I’ll let you all know and tweet about it like crazy!
I am honestly really pleased and overwhelmed with how well this readathon went. A lot of people participated, more than I thought would seeing as how I only gave it two weeks of publicity. It seemed that everyone enjoyed their books and cheered each other on and I just loved being able to see that and be a part of it.
With that being said, I am pleased to announce that I’ll be hosting another LGBT Readathon at the end of June! Go run and mark your diaries for 22nd – 28th June! More info about it and a proper post with a button will go up soon but for now, just keep the week free!
