I am pleased to report that Stacey and I participated in all 24 hours of the readathon! I even took a quick nap and made it to work on time. Now that I have had some time to reflect, let me complete the end of event survey.
- Which hour was most daunting for you? Hours 21-24 (4-7 a.m.) were brutal!
- Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? Michael Grant’s Gone series in un-put-downable! For people looking for quirky, fun adult reads I would recommend Lisa Lutz’s Spellmans series.
- Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? Fewer music related mini-challenges and working links!
- What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
- How many books did you read? I completed 2 novels, 1.5 graphic novels, and 2hrs 40min of audiobooks
- What were the names of the books you read? I finished Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake, Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier, Fables: Homelands by Bill Willingham. I read half of Fables: Arabian Nights (and Days) by Bill Willingham and listened to parts of Goliath by Scott Westerfeld and The Killing Floor by Lee Child
- Which book did you enjoy most? Ruby Red was my favorite
- Which did you enjoy least? I did not have a least favorite, I enjoyed all of my picks
- If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
- How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? I will definitely participate again. I would like to host a mini-challenge next time.
