#Readathon Wrap Up

I got a late start this year for some time with my girlfriends. Much needed. So I read a whole book, a short story and finished another book I had started earlier this month. I also started another one (not sure if I’ll finish it before I head to bed, there’s still a little time left during the “official” event). I’d say a decently successful event for me! It’s why I participate in the Dewey’s Read-a-thon. I don’t feel like I HAVE to read those full 24 hours. It’s whatever works for you.

Here’s the answers to their end of event meme:

1. Which hour was most daunting for you?

Hour 20 – I fell asleep in my chair in my office. Oops!

2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?

Anything short, fun – especially if you are staying up late. Anything too heavy and you’ll zone out.

3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?

I noticed I didn’t get but a few cheerleaders hitting my blog. Not a huge deal, it’s for me, not them, but I thought it was a little weird.

4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?

Twitter was the star this year… TONS of posts coming through. Fun!

5. How many books did you read?

2 books total, I guess (one whole one, finished one and started another) and a short story

6. What were the names of the books you read?

The Nestorian Alliance, Chromatics Attack, Effie at the Wedding and I started Proud Pants by Gregory Allen

Which book did you enjoy most?

Chromatics Attack

Which did you enjoy least?

Gosh… none of them. I read really good books this year!

If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?


How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?

Yes, of course. I may do just cheerleading in April since that’s tax time and a bad time for me, otherwise I’ll read again 🙂

    I also fell asleep, well nearly near the end, and I also found that I didn’t get as many cheerleaders this year as I did in the past. But a great time nonetheless.

    I’m so glad you had fun. The readathon is definitely take what you want from it, no pressure to do the entire 24 hours. Thanks for participating in my challenge! 🙂
