As usual, I had a smashing good time during the Read-a-Thon. I exceeded my total number of pages read in the last Read-a-Thon, and I think also my time spent reading, too! This event is one of my favorite things that I've participated in as a book blogger. This RaT makes my third, which I can hardly believe.

Thanks to all of the organizers, Trish, Nymeth, Eva, and Hannah.

Thanks to all of you who came and cheered me on, both those I know and those I met for the first time. I'm afraid I'll be adding even MORE blogs to my Google Reader, now that I've discovered you!

And especially thanks to Dewey, although she is no longer with us. We will always remember her, especially when we come together as a community to do things like the Read-a-Thon. She was a wonderful community-builder, book blogger, and human being...she is missed.

The Read-a-thon is one of my favorite book blogosphere things to do, too. Congrats on surpassing your number of pages read from the last one, and glad to hear you had a great time! =)
