1. Which hour was most daunting for you? Hour 21 – 1AM. I read until 2AM when I could not keep my eyes open any longer.
2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? Short YA books would work great.
3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? Nope- it was great!
4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? The Cheerleaders, mini challenges, and twitter #readathon updates.
5. How many books did you read? 2
6. What were the names of the books you read? Hunger by Jackie Morse Kessler, and Afterlife by Claudia Gray
7. Which book did you enjoy most? Both are really good! For the readathon Hunger is more appropriate at only 180 pages
8. Which did you enjoy least? Liked them both
9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? The Cheerleaders were very encouraging – thank you!
10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? Sure, I’ll do it again. Reader for sure, and possibly a cheerleader.
Hunger – 90 pages
Afterlife – 260 pages
Total – 350 pages
Will try it again next year!
From 1AM PST:
Falling asleep with my book, not sure how much longer I can read!
Books read: Hunger by Jackie Morse Kessler (finished the last 90 pages)
Reading now: Afterlife by Claudia Gray (Kindle read 61% / approx. 225 pages)
Total read: 315 pages
Trying to squeeze in a little more reading before I call it a night. Did not get to read as much as I’d hoped. Life got in the way, but I had a great time!
