And finally Wrap-Up Questions
1. Which hour was most daunting for you?
The last hour I was awake 4 - 5. It's the reason why I didn't stay up for the for 24 hours, because I was so tired I kept reading the same page over and over.
2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
Irish Girls About Town is a collection of short stories, I didn't get far into it, but they are light, and funny so it's a good choice to read later at night. Easy to follow, chick-litish related. (Although some are more "Women's Lit"
The Chornicles of Narnia Books are also good choice. Although I'm finding I'm just not a big fan of them, they're very easy to follow, big font in most editions and you can read a bunch of them in a short period of time.
3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
Provide us caffine IV Hooks-Ups, or cattle prods to make me stay awake the full 24 hours? Haha.
4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
The Cheerleaders were great! I was busy reading, so I never did see what the mini-challenges were like this year, but I saw glimpses of them and they look interesting and creative.
5. How many books did you read?
See wrap-up above
6. What were the names of the books you read?
See Wrap Up Above
7. Which book did you enjoy most?
Good Bones - Margaret Atwood
8. Which did you enjoy least?
The Good Doctor, The Horse and His Boy
9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
Wasn't a cheerleader, but again, you guys rocked!
10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
100% Likely! It gives me an exscuse to read all day! And of course, a reader! Just Keep Reading, Just Keep Reading!
Book Reviews Should be up shortly - within the week. I have one from before the read-a-thon to catch up on.
