    Wow, you did an incredible job – that’s a lot of pages. And it really was a 24-hour readathon for you – so impressive! Kudos from a fellow Romantics!

    Wow, you totally blew me out of the water. I passed out in Hour 21 with only 507 pages read. Great job with amount of pages and reading time. You should definitely be in the running for most pages/most time spent reading. Good luck!
