Holy crappola, I don’t think I’ve ever been awake for the actual end of the readathon before! I mean, I took several naps in between, but hey! At least it’s 8 AM on Sunday and I’m here now!
So, here’s the End-of-Event survey thingy…
- Which hour was most daunting for you? Apparently the 4 AM-ish hour, because I was back at work and it’s always hard to stay awake when it’s so dark out, especially on like two hours of sleep. So, I got pretty sleepy and could barely keep my eyes open.
- Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? Will Grayson, Will Grayson is definitely entertaining.
- Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? Nope, it was organized great!
- What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? I like that a lot of blogs that did mini-challenges gave away their own prizes.
- How many books did you read? I finished one and started two others – all together, I read 604 pages, I believe. Didn’t quite make my goal of 800, but I feel okay about it. Plus it’s light out now, so I can probably stay awake and read for a few more hours on my own. I’ll definitely finish WG, WG because I only have 35 pages left. So close!
- What were the names of the books you read? If You Ask Me by Betty White, Physics of the Future by Michio Kaku, and Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan.
- Which book did you enjoy most? All of them, for different reasons.
- Which did you enjoy least? N/A
- If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? N/A
- How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? I’ll definitely be reading for the next readathon! Don’t know how likely it is that I’ll cheer or host a challenge, but never say never.
So, that’s about it folks! I had fun during the challenges I was able to participate in, and I feel good about this year’s readathon. I liked that I just accepted that I had to take a nap here and there instead of trying to stay awake for the whole 24 hours. I did NOT like all of the interruptions from the honeyman’s family and my family, but it happens.
Anyways, I’m off to finish WG, WG and then to write reviews for these books and then to read some more anyways, because I’m currently 6 hours in to an 18-hour work shift and I got plenty of time.
I had fun readathoning with all of you!
