Finally finished! I had so much fun doing this readathon, especially enjoying it with my friend Tricia. I finally gave in to sleep at around 3am and finished 823 pages. I'm a little disappointed that I didn't read more than that, I feel like kind of a wimp. But something more to try for next time!
Thank you so much to all my cheerleaders and to the event event orgaznizers! You put in a great deal of hard work and it was appreciated!
Here are my answers to the end of event meme.
1. Which hour was most daunting for you? Hour 14 and Hour 19
2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
It's a little hard to list since there are so many different people and interests, but I think anything by Suzanne Collins or Carlos Ruiz Zafon would work. Also, light, quick reads would help also so you could finish more books and feel like you accomplished more.
3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
No, it was really great. This was my first time and I was impressed by all the hard work from the cheerleaders and organizers.
4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
The cheerleaders are awesome and the hourly updates and mini-challenges were a fun distraction.
5. How many books did you read?
3 and almost a third of another one.
6. What were the names of the books you read?
Ella Enchanted, The Giver, Dairy Queen, part of The Hourglass Door
7. Which book did you enjoy most?
8. Which did you enjoy least?
I really liked them all quite a bit, but probably the least was the Hourglass Door because I didn't finish and was tired during it.
10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
Very likely, it was fun to read and to connect with so many readers around the world. I would be a reader again.
