End of Event Meme:
Which hour was most daunting for you?
Surprisingly the halfway point hour 12. I was multi-tasking all day with chores and audiobooks and just started to crash.
Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
Mix it up with different genres, and keeping books on the short side worked for me. Novellas= more books read & keeps you motivated!
Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
Nah- everything is awesome as always.
What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
The community support was great.
How many books did you read?
What were the names of the books you read?
Finished books in progress:
Safe with Me by Amy Hatvany (Audiobook)
What I Thought was True by Huntley Fitzpatrick
The Little Android by Marissa Meyer
The Queen’s Army by Marissa Meyer
Glitches by Marissa Meyer
Red at Night by Katie McGarry
Her Best Laid Plans by Cara McKenna
Love Life by Rob Lowe (finished disc 1)
Which book did you enjoy most?
Safe with Me was suspenseful and kept me reading, but it was intense too and wore me out. I had to switch to lighter reads after that, hence the novellas.
Which did you enjoy least?
What I Thought Was True was a little disappointing.
If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
I wasn’t but thanks so much for cheering me on, especially in the wee hours.
How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
I certainly hope so, as a reader again.
Reading for Charity Totals:
I was reading to support The Trevor Project. Their mission:
The Trevor Project is determined to end suicide among LGBTQ youth by providing life-saving and life-affirming resources including our nationwide, 24/7 crisis intervention lifeline, digital community and advocacy/educational programs that create a safe, supportive and positive environment for everyone.
I pledged to donate a per book/comment amount. And here’s the final tally:
- .$5 for each book read – 6 = $30
$5 for each hour listened – 7 hours = $35
25 cents for each comment or like on this post – currently 30 comments/likes = $7.50 (rounded up to $10)
$5 for each hour missed – 4.5 hours = $22.50 (rounded up to $25)
Total donation for The Trevor Project = $100

Big thanks to Felicia at The Geeky Blogger ‘s Book Blog for also making a $10 donation to The Trevor Project, and being so supportive of everyone reading for charity!
Also huge thanks to author Marissa Meyer who was also reading for charity, and matching donations for everyone who was reading for charity! So that’s another $100 for Marissa’s charity Reach Out and Read. Woohoo!
I will personally match the donation amounts that other read-a-thonners donate, AND include an additional donation for every Lunar Chronicles book or short story that is read during the day!
That’s a wrap for readathon! See you in October!
