Out With a Bang Readathon Wrap Up & Giveaway

I started strong on the challenge but day 3 was my undoing. After reading two books each on days one and two, I was confident going into day 3. However, I ran into a book that I just couldn't get into. Here are the books I finished.

Along with doing a lot of end of year blog posts, updating challenge progress bars, signing up for still more challenges and general time wasting, I did manage to read Queen of Shadows by Dianne Sylvan. Since I finished it after midnight, I'm counting it as my first book of 2011. I read 300 pages of it on Dec. 31 and the final 100 after midnight.

Does anyone want a copy of the ARC of The Anatomy of Ghosts by Andrew Taylor? The writing style reminds me of classic literature which is definitely not my thing. Click on the title to read about the book at Amazon. If you would like it, leave your email address in the comments and I'll draw a winner using (or maybe slips of paper in a hat) later this week. I'll ship this heavy ARC to the US or Canada.

I read a total of 1742 pages during the readathon and 4 3/4 books. I didn't participate in any of the mini-challenges this time. I just concentrated on reading and getting my blogs ready for 2011.
