Read-A-Thon Closing Remarks

I'm late, I know. Always late, worth the wait, and blah blah blah. Haha! I wanted to let you know how I did during the Summer Lovin' Read-A-Thon and I want to know how you did as well!

It was both a blessing and a curse that I'm currently in the middle of George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series (aka A Game of Thrones) because I did not read 20830 books last week like most of you did. I didn't even finish ONE. That's because A Storm of Swords is 1177 pages long (which means those percentages don't move on my Kindle!). I did make a huge dent in this book, mostly floating on a raft in my mom's pool sipping sparkling water in the southern California sun. So instead of boasting that I finished a book, I'm going to say this read-a-thon helped me get my first serious tan in over a decade. I'd say that counts for something, right?

Did you participate in the Summer Lovin' Read-A-Thon? If so, what did you read and/or accomplish? Even if you didn't formally participate, what have you been reading this month? I'd love to know!

Speaking of Game of Thrones/A Song of Ice and Fire - if you're a fan of the books and want to participate in a discussion about them with me and a friend, let me know! We hope to cook up something fun for August when my goal is to review every single book in the series, but I need your help! :)
