The End is Near

End of the Read-a-Thon that is! Everybody who participated this time around is a rock star! I have been trying to visit as many blogs as I can to cheer people on, and that's no easy task-there are a lot of you out there! Great job everyone!

Eva has asked for a wrap-up post for everyone to give their input on the read-a-thon. After visiting lots of blogs and seeing what everyone is eating, I think the only suggestion I would make is that next time someone post a list of healthy snack ideas/recipes ahead of time. LOL! Let's face it people, a case of diet soda, a pound of jerky, and endless varieties of chips all mixed with endless rounds of coffee can't be good for us!

Seriously though, I think this was a great event, and I had a lot of fun visiting everyone's blogs. In fact, I'm gonna go now because I've still got 20 minutes to try to visit everyone on my list!

oops!!! I think I had the most junk and greasy food in the entire readathon participants :)

I'll try and change that next time.

Eva said...

LOL @ your concern over junk food! Dewey always gave the same advice. :D

Violet-Hey, I'm not judging! Whatever gets you through the event. :)

Eva-I guess in some ways it's good to know that some things haven't changed!

Vasilly said...

I'm so glad you enjoyed yourself. I think you're right about the junk food though. People started crashing last night!

Michelle said...

Thanks for stopping by and cheering me on yesterday. It was much appreciated. Hope you had as much fun as I did.

Thanks for cheering me on :) I really appreciated it.
I will admit that I did not realize until around lunchtime that most of my snacks/meals involved some kind of cheese! Definitely good snack recipes would be appreciated for next time. Great idea@

Did you feel your time zone helped, or hurt you. Must have been 2am or so. Right?

Dreamybee said...

Vasilly-That's the problem with the junk food, the big crash at the end. Otherwise, I'm all in favor!

Michelle-I did have fun! It's so cool that you and your husband read for a charity!

Carrie-Yes it was, I'm glad you enjoyed it!

lyingpeacefully-You're welcome! I'm glad you had fun.

staceybuckeye-Cheese is always a good snack! I'm pretty sure I would not be able to make it through a read-a-thon without any.

Mike-Yes, 2AM start and end time for me. I tend to be a bit of a night owl, so it worked out well for me. I was able to cover the beginning and the end of the read-a-thon, which tended to be the hours when people were either not up and moving around yet or dropping like flies, although I do feel like I missed out on some of the main events.

Good for us? As long as it keeps the belly full!

Dreamybee said...

Ronnica-If you spread it out over 3 days you can eat whatever you want during the read-a-thon! ;)

Just wanted to say thanks for cheering me on during the Read A Thon! All the comments really helped!

You're so right about the snacks. I didn't watch myself in this area and should plan to be better next time.

Thanks for visiting me, too!

Dreamybee said...

Buckeye Girl-Happy to do it!

3m.michelle-LOL-Now I'm starting to feel like the snack police! I love your blog layout, and your Twitter "follow me" avatar is one of the cutest ones I've seen!
