Readathon Hangover Wrap-Up

dewey's 24-hour read-a-thon

Another Read-a-Thon has come and gone- this one was the best ever for me. I didn’t read the most books by a long shot but it was a great well-rounded experience. I read, participated in a few mini challenges, checked in on social media, and most importantly had fun.

End of Event Meme – Dewey’s 24-hour Readathon

Which hour was most daunting for you?

I started nodding off at hour 19 but made it all the way to hour 21.

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

I liked reading shorter books and novellas to give you that greater sense of accomplishment.

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

No, you all are pros at this!

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

This is the first time I joined in some mini-challenges and that made it extra fun. One thing I hadn’t considered is that they are so creative they help make you more alert so you can keep reading.

How many books did you read?

I read 4, and I have an audiobook in progress

What were the names of the books you read?

Fall of Night by Rachel Caine

Die for Her by Amy Plum

No Attachments by Tiffany King

Binding Agreement by Kyra Davis

The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer (Audiobook in progress)

Bonus: My daughter joined me for a few hours and finished reading Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys

Which book did you enjoy most?

Fall of Night by Rachel Caine, and I wished that I had The Interestings in print too so I could keep reading.

Which did you enjoy least?

I liked the diversity in my reading, and maybe it was the late hour but I wasn’t feeling passionate about the last two books I read (No Attachments & Binding Agreement)

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

I wasn’t a cheerleader this year, but I loved getting the comments and encouragement! You all are awesome.

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

Very likely to participate in this event in the fall! Definitely as a reader, and maybe as a cheerleader or mini-challenge host.

This read-a-thon is a wrap! Coffee and laundry await!

  4. Awesome! go you! Maybe I’ll be able to participate next year!

  5. Great first read-a-thon! I wanted to join, but it was a hectic weekend. Maybe in the fal.
