Wow! I can’t believe the readathon was just last week…it seems like it was forever ago! Thanks to everyone for making the readathon so fantastic! I really love the book blogging community!
First and foremost, I want to thank the volunteers that eagerly and capably came to my aid. The readathon is extremely time consuming to administrate, and I really couldn’t have done it without these folks!

If I forgot someone, I apologize. The readathon is a blur, not just now, but when it was happening, so if I forgot you it’s just because you caught me at a time that I was unaware of my surroundings. Even more folks offered to help but I didn’t end up taking them up on their offer only because I’m still learning to delegate.
We like to announce mini-challenge winners here on the readathon site, and these are the mini-challenge winners we weren’t able to announce while the readathon was in progress:

Angels Still Needed
Okay, we are running low (actually in the red here) on Angels. Angels, you ask? Yes, we call them Angels because what they do is make it possible for the readathon prizes to be open internationally since many of the donors are already going out of their way to give the books, we need the Angels to pay to get them to the winners. This year we have more international peeps than usual and have completely run out of Angels!!!! We really need your help so that the readathoners from all over the world can get their books and bookie things. International Priority Flat Rate (envelope that fits one book, box that would fit a few) is $13.45. So it’s not too expensive, but we couldn’t do it without your help. If you are interested please head on over and fill out this Angel Form. Thank you so much!
**We also need angels in Europe! Please help make it possible for everyone in the world to win a book!
The Next Readathon
The next readathon is scheduled for October 9, 2010. Hope to see you then!
