Read Your Own Books Read-a-Thon Wrap Up

It was an excellent weekend for reading, and although my results are modest, I'm definitely happy to get some of these gems read (even if many were library books- sorry! I couldn't help myself.) Here's what I read this weekend:
A Caribbean Mystery (Miss Marple Mysteries)The Murder at the Vicarage (Miss Marple)Naked in Death (In Death, Book 1)Blood Law: A NovelA Wild Light (Hunter Kiss, Book 3)
Two books for a challenge (I'm now 2/3 of the way done with the Marple-Poirot-Holmes challenge!), one book I'd had for review since before my move, and the first Blog with Bite book (which was AWESOME, by the way!) Not bad, if I do say so myself.




I also, by virtue of finishing five books over the course of the weekend, was able to donate $25 to Jumpstart, one of my favorite literacy related charities! I can definitely see this becoming a readathon tradition for me for future events.

If you participated in the readathon, how did you do with your reading? Will you participate in a future event? I always have a lot of fun with these weekends so I hope you can participate in a future installment. :D
