24h Read-A-Thon (2013): Hour 24

Hello everybody,
Books finished: 4 (City of Ashes, Girl of Nightmares, Letters to a young Scientist, The Nightmare)
Books started: 4 (Girl of Nightmares, Letters to a young Scientist, The Nightmare, Ender's Game)
Pages read: 1565
Hours slept: 0.5
Feeling: Exhausted...but happy. In all I am very satisfied. I only slept 30 minutes this time, so I almost did the 24 full hours. Also, although I didn't finish as many books as last year, they were bigger and hence my page count was considerably higher than last time. Also I am happy to see people participating at my challenge :)

End of Read-A-Thon post
