1. Which hour was most daunting for you?
Hour 20, which just happens to be when I passed out!
2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
Anything by Ellen Hopkins.
3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
Not really. This was my first one and it was all I could do just to keep up with the reading and all the other activities and blogs that I was checking out. It seemed to run smoothly to me...
4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
I have nothing to compare it to, so I'll say everything!
5. How many books did you read?
I read three and didn't finish any, lol. But I was a few chapters away from finishing I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings when I fell asl...zzzz.
6. What were the names of the books you read?
The Elephant Vanishes by Haruki Murakami (Audio Book), I know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou, and What to Expect Before you're Expecting by Heidi Murkoff.
7. Which book did you enjoy most?
I know Why The Caged Bird Sings. Maya Angelou is an inspiration and a beautiful writer.
8. Which did you enjoy least?
The Elephant Vanishes had a few stories in it that left me scratching my head.
9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
N/A It was helpful to get the motivating comments.
10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? I will be participating in all that I can schedule-wise. I think I may just be a reader for a few more, until I get really blog savvy!
So I'm not sure how many total pages I read since one of my books was an audio book, but I'm guessing that I spent about 8-9 hours dedicated to the read-a-thon. It was lots of fun, and I'm sure that with some better planning and taking heed of some of the very useful suggestions by others, I can probably at least double that next time.
See you in October!
