TSS - READ-A-THON wrapup
Boy, this was really a LOT of fun! I decided not to try to be a reader this year - I'm still pretty sure I can't stay up for 24 hours straight. I had the priviledge of being a cheerleader, and man, it was great.
I had no idea, going into it, how many people would be participating. I got to go to so many new, fun blogs - my subscription list grew and grew and grew! And it was a cool experience to see the book blogging community in action - so much encouragement, kind words, and caring attitudes at work. On one of the blogs I visited (sorry, I can't remember who! If it was you, let me know, and I'll link to you!), the blogger was commenting that really, this isn't that much different than a normal day for a reader - we all have spent days where we just get lost in a book. The difference is, for the past 24 hours, we were able to get lost with hundreds of other readers, all at the same time. That's a pretty great thing!
Huge, HUGE thanks go to the organizers of the Read-A-Thon - Trish, Nymeth, and Hannah, as well as Aerin, who did the huge job of making the feeds page. They did such a great job - it was really a wonderful day. Thanks, girl!
So now, I'm all excited for the next one - when is the next one again?? =)
