Wicked Wildfire wrapped up a couple of days ago, but I'm just now getting to our final post. Why? Well...because I'm a procrastinator and I like watching House, M.D. Yup. Pure, unadulterated laziness.
So...how about a wrap-up of my worst read-a-thon showing ever? I am not super happy with my numbers on this one. Sad enough that I didn't meet any of my goals even half way, I also got bested by the kid...who had six fewer participation days. Pathetic. Let's hope I do better with the Wonderfully Wicked Read-a-Thon that My Shelf Confessions will be hosting from October 17th to 27th.
Elle's Final Stats
Yes...I finally finished The Grapes of Wrath. And let me tell you, I totally wanted to give it the review of wrath. That book freaking ticked me off. I was so incredibly bored by it. The story had a great premise, an important piece of American history, but between the slang language and the idiotic Rosasharn, I wanted to throw the book against the wall. It was on my Nook though, so I refrained. On Goodreads there are about 5 billion raving reviews of the book. Nope...not me. I gave it two stars and don't feel a bit sorry about it. Now I'm throwing myself into young adult fiction to help assuage my pain and get out of my reading funk. I seriously blame The Grapes of Wrath for these horrible stats.

We have one more day of the High Summer Read-a-Thon left, so we're still hitting the books. At least my progress on that read-a-thon won't look quite so awful now that I've finished a book. Thank goodness.
