Final update.

Somewhere along the way, I did the math wrong for number of pages read. I was off by 84 pages.  The error probably occurred when I was reading Catching Fire.  I may have even misread a page number due to the font Scholastic used for the book — zeros had a slash through them and if you looked too quickly, they looked like 8s.

Update for 31 December 2011:

  • Number of hours: 1 1/2
  • Number of pages: 80
  • Number of Books Completed: 1

Read-a-thon Totals:
Total Number of Hours: 22
Total Number of Pages: 854 938
Total Number of Books Completed: 4

Books Completed:
First Grave on the Right (Darynda Jones) {23 Dec 11}
Catching Fire (Suzanne Collins) {26 Dec 11}
A Countess by Christmas (Annie Burrows) {30 Dec 11}
Risky Christmas (Anthology) (Jill Sorenson/Jennifer Morey) {31 Dec 11}

Wrap-Up:
This turned out to be a great event for me. I didn’t think I was going to do well because I was only reading a few hours a day, and I didn’t read for two days there in the middle.  I think I enjoyed this more than the 24 hour read-a-thon.  Had I not skipped a few days, I would have read over 24 hours and I could have finished one more book.

I put aside Bespelling Jane Austen in favor of reading Christmas-themed books, so I still feel I met my goal.  I was more concerned with finishing the other two books.  Bespelling Jane Austen is an anthology, so I can pick it up again at any time to read the other stories.

I would definitely participate in more of this type of read-a-thon in the future.
