48-Hour Book Challenge Finish Line

No, I didn’t get nearly as much done as I hoped, or as I did last year. But, hey, with a headache and dizziness, this is still quite good. And it was definitely still fun.

I only finished three books. But Code Name Verity was so incredibly good, it was just as well it was the only fiction book I finished. All the better to savor that way.

Here are my stats:

So, it looks like I will need to turn in lots and lots of books if I want to go to California in a couple weeks without holding onto library books I haven’t read. We shall see!

Now, I admit I wish I hadn’t had a headache the whole weekend. But if I had to have a headache, it was definitely nice to be distracted. I’m counting this a success!
