Usually it’s early morning when I write my Sunday Salon post but after being up all night with the event, I’m barely getting the strength now to even blog. I was on the prize committee, so it was my job to contact publishers and bloggers about possible donations, contact winners throughout the event, and keep tabs on who won and who hadn’t yet. Plus I was also cheer-leading and reading. It was pretty challenging especially when I took over the read-a-thon for two hours. That was so scary but so awesome! I don’t know if I would do it all again during the next read-a-thon in October but it was a great experience. The highlight was knowing that so many people had a great time. If you participated in the read-a-thon yesterday and are considering participating in the next one, I hope you sign up to volunteer. The read-a-thon is only fun when enough volunteers are willing to help. Volunteer duties can be as short as 1 hour or as long as 20.
I bet you’re wondering about the title of this post. Well after every read-a-thon, I get a little headache because of the lack of sleep and the ton of books read. I only finished 1 or 2 books this time with everything I was doing, but I still ended up with one. I don’t mind. I just hope my headache goes away soon.
To recover from everything I’ve been up to, I plan on taking this week off from blogging. I want to read a little, catch up on my homework, and just relax. I hope you all have a great week.
Did you participate in this weekend’s read-a-thon?
