1. Which hour was most daunting for you?
Hour 1--I had been SOOOO excited for the read-a-thon, but I woke up at 5 a.m. when mine was supposed to start, and I was feeling miserable. I ended up sleeping for 5 more hours, which meant that I didn't meet any of my goals.
2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? Mysteries work really well! I couldn't put And Then There Were None down even though I've read it ten times before.
3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? I had a blast. :)
4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? The Cheerleaders kept me going during the tough hours. How thoughtful everyone was!
5. How many books did you read? four books and counting
6. What were the names of the books you read? I finished Much Ado about Nothing, And Then There Were None, Being Perfect, and The Messenger. I read parts of The Moonstone and my All Cooked Up Elvis cookbook. Also Shakespeare's Henry V.
7. Which book did you enjoy most? And Then There Were None and The Moonstone
8. Which did you enjoy least? Sorry, Shakespeare, but you're not fun for read-a-thons.
9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? Keep the comments coming. We really appreciate them and read every one!
10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? I'll probably do the same thing. I will read and then comment as much as I can on others' blogs.
