#12hppofxmas The Day After

I quit posting about the #12hppofxmas on Monday because I wanted all of my "What I Read Last Year" posts to go up without interruption. That's something I'll have to consider when I'm scheduling my posts for next year. Basically, the last few days of my readathon were spent doing a little reading each day and then a lot of I have no clue what else. I'm a good time waster, let me tell you.

So I finished up the 12 days of Christmas yesterday having read a not-terribly-astonishing 1289 pages, or about 107 pages per day. Every holiday season is different, and I'm happy to have hit the goal, even though I did a little better last year.

Here's what I read:

  • All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr (I'd started this book earlier in December and finished it on Xmas Day)
  • A History of Celibacy by Elizabeth Abbott (also started before the readathon, but I had to read most of it during... lesson learned, non-fiction is not great for a readathon)
  • I Kill Giants by Joe Kelly and J.M. Ken Niimura
  • Slade House by David Mitchell
  • Commonwealth by Ann Patchett (I finished this one today!)
  • The Secret Agent by Joseph Conrad (was at page 55 as of yesterday *sigh*)

The regular schedule resumes on Monday, when I'll be posting my review of Light in August. Because my backlog of posts is increasing I may accelerate the schedule to two posts per week sometime this year, but no promises on that score just yet.
