As for my goals:
  • Read at least 5 books - DONE
  • Update my reading progress - DONE at the end, but had trouble keeping up
  • Participate in the mini-challenges - big fail

This was the first time I was on vacation and not working full-time during the Read-a-Thon, but since I was on a family trip I knew I couldn't be too optimistic about having much free time to read and reality was worse than expected: Though I got to read some books while on the plane and on the road, I didn't participate in any mini challenge and I had trouble updating my sheet. But well, I had a nice family vacation ;-) Hope you had fun during the Read-a-Thon. :-)
