I didn't stay up all night, or read for the entire day, but I did get some serious reading done. Here's my end of event wrap-up survey.
- Which hour was most daunting for you? 24? Not that I stayed up all night, but I planned on waking up and reading for the final hour, so I could say I'd read in both hour 1 and 24. I didn't end up waking until after the end of the read-a-thon, but I did wake up and finish the book I was working on when I went to bed last night.
- Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? I really liked reading Tamora Pierce's Immortals series. I'd think any of her books would be good choices.
- Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? Nope!
- What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? I thought it was very well run.
- How many books did you read? Two entire books, plus parts of two more, including one I finished this morning after the readathon.
- What were the names of the books you read? Completed: Emperor Mage, Tamora Pierce; Aya of Yop City, Marguerite Abouet. Worked on: Maps, Nuruddin Farah; The Realm of the Gods, Tamora Pierce (now complete)
- Which book did you enjoy most? The Realm of the Gods
- Which did you enjoy least? I enjoyed them all! although I was disappointed that Aya ended on such a cliffhanger, and I don't know if I can get the third book :-(
- If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? I was not a Cheerleader
- How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? I'd definitely participate again. Certainly as a reader, and possibly as an official cheerleader or a mini-challenge host.
What are your reading plans for today? Or are you wiped out from too much yesterday?
