The Weekend in Review

So I started this weekend's read-a-thon like this at 7:00 a.m. Saturday morning:

By 8:30 a.m., I had finished book one and I was still like:

I finished book two with ease around 12:30 p.m.  I felt myself waning and decided to eat lunch and have a Pepsi.  By the time I dived into book three at 2:30 p.m., I was like:

Now I probably could have gotten in a few more books, but I had a dinner invite that I couldn't miss, so I finished book three right around 5:40 and headed out for the evening.  Could I regain my momentum? Uh, no.  I started book four around 11:30 p.m. and halfway through I was all: 

I think I made it to 2:00 a.m. and just couldn't go any further.  With my alarm set for 4:00 a.m., I figured I could get up and have book five read before the 7:00 a.m. end of the read-a-thon.  Let me tell you, when my alarm went off, THIS was the look on my face.

Needless to say, I didn't start reading. I rolled right back over and went to bed.  So I didn't read all five books that I planned to read, but I did get in three books that qualify for the Colorful Chick Lit challenge and a very good historical fiction read.  Look for reviews of those books and more in the next few weeks.

Who else participated? Did you last all 24 hours or did you crash like me? What did you read? Details, details!
