I started reading at about 8:30 AM with Rhys Bowen's Royal Blood (A Royal Spyness Mystery) then The Snowman by Jo Nesbo. I read half of Jamaica Inn by Daphne du Maurier but since I wasn't loving it and I was getting sleepy, I switched to The Good Thief's Guide to Amsterdam by Chris Ewan and got halfway through that by the time I called it a night at 1:30 AM. So I think I read about 1000 pages total.
I did take a two hour nap and a break to watch some tv and do some blog commenting. I loved all the comments I got from the readathon cheerleaders. The readathon has such a nice sense of community, both on blogs and twitter and they made it even more fun.
