End of the Read-a-Thon Meme

1. Which hour was most daunting for you?

Hour 21. I was awake but the words were not making sense to me.

2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?

I started Cemetery Dance late the game and perhaps I should have started that one earlier. It is a real page turner.

3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?

It would be great to maybe have a sample template for posting. I made one up but I kept getting confused with the number of pages read, recorded, etc.

4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?

Twitter was surprisingly useful.

5. How many books did you read?

I finished 2 but read a few more than that in bits and pieces.

6. What were the names of the books you read?

sTori Telling, Guernsey, The Spare Room and Cemetery Dance.

7. Which book did you enjoy most?

Cemetery Dance.

8. Which did you enjoy least?

The format for Guernsey really slowed me down.

9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?

I was a reader but the cheerleaders did great!

10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?

I’d like to be a reader again, but plan a bit more beforehand. I entered so late this time around. I really thought I could just throw a stack together and do it but it was difficult with the kids in the house, etc.

  1. Congrats, Ti! 21 hours is very impressive!

    Good tips for next time (I hope to read in October)

  2. I thought I was organized but I ended up confusing myself too. It didn’t help having a headache-my concentration drops off in a big way. Next time I will put more thought into what I’m reading. I wanted to put a dent in what I was reading but most of the books that I was reading are on the heavier side. Not good for when you want a higher page count.

    That being said it was fun and I’ll do it again in October.

  3. Congrats! You stayed up later than I did. I was reading slower than normal, and I was reading <>Guernsey<>, too. Not sure if it was the format, though, because I absolutely loved it. Looking forward to your thoughts on it.

  4. i was going to say Anna was reading the same book, and not sure if it was the format slowing her down as well…she reads much faster than i do.
    21 hours is impressive, congrats…I only finished one book.

  5. Good for you for doing it Tina, I didn’t realize people were supposed to stay up all night though, that’s brutal:)

  6. I think I needed to plan a little more before hand. Knowing that will make next time better. This was my first time, looking forward to the next one.
