Hour 20. I always pass out around then. I actually made it to Hour 21 this year. My eyes were tired so I switched to my audiobook and was able to stay up a little longer.
2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
I stuck with novellas and graphic novel for the most part. I also liked having my audiobook so I could be up and around and still reading.
3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
I think this was the best yet. The prep ahead of time was fantastic. I think the hosts did an excellent job of raising a lot of interest.
4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
5. How many books did you read?
Finished eight and made another hour's progress in one.
6. What were the names of the books you read?
Finished: Last Day In Vietnam, Made for Each Other, The Selection Stories, Phoenix Overture, The Great American Dust Bowl, The Girl Who Owned A City, Set To Sea, and Glacial Period. Made progress in: The Ocean At The End of The Lane.
7. Which book did you enjoy most?
The Selection Stories. I made me more excited to read The One.
8. Which did you enjoy least?
Glacial Period. I don't think I understood it.
9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
I was a #teamrogue cheerleader and I appreciate having that option. This year's cheerleaders were great. I think that they did a fantastic job.
10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
Yup, already planning on participating in October. That will be my 10th 24 hour read-a-thon.
I think next time I will follow the suggestion of an audiobook, it will be a nice break from actually physically looking at a book. And 8 books?! You did a fantastic job!!ReplyDelete
