1. Which hour was most daunting for you? 4-5 am, I had to take a break and walk around, watch TV, eat, almost nearly gave up.
2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? books written in email format! ie. Holly's Inbox, The Boy series by Meg Cabot, The SAHM series by Meredith Efken. Seriously, they are addictive and you can't stop reading. Great for early morning hours!
3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? none, it's great the way it is!
UPDATE 3:02 PM (when i'm a bit coherent) i was a bit disappointed that during the wee hours there weren't any mini challenges. i know that there were a bunch of us still up and the mini challenges were good to keep you from falling asleep while reading so the fact that there was nothing to do was a bit sad.
4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? twitter! great community to see all the tweets about it, and to see readathon trending!
5. How many books did you read? 22
6. What were the names of the books you read? Leaving Carolina by Tamara Leigh, The Elevator by Angela Hunt, Confessions of a Fat Girl by Liza Palmer, Why the Sky is Blue by Susan Meissner, Red and Lowering Sky by Lynn Morris, Ready to Wed by Melody Carlson, Seeing Me Naked by Liza Palmer, Love Finds You in Romeo, Colorado by Gwen Ford Faulkenberry, The Mother Daughter Book Club by Heather Vogel Frederick, Love Finds You in Valentine, Nebraska by Irene Brand, Love Finds You in Snowball, Arkansas by Sandra D. Bricker, Princess Izzy and the E Street Shuffle by Beverly Bartlett, Sins of the Mother by Patricia Rushford, Love Finds You in Miracle, Kentucky by Andrea Boeshaar, Carpool Diem by Nancy Star, The Will of Wisteria by Denise Hildreth, Georgia on Her Mind by Rachel Hauck, Cyber Cinderella by Christina Hopkinson, Holly's Inbox by Holly Denham, Love Finds You In Sister, Oregon by Melody Carlson, Buried Sins by Marta Perry
7. Which book did you enjoy most? Holly's Inbox
8. Which did you enjoy least? I would have to say Red and Lowering Sky was a bit tough to get into.
9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? N/A but thanks to all the cheerleaders! Loved all the comments, great motivation!
10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? 99.9% sure i will as a reader again! (unless future schedules don't allow for it :(
