So I went to bed at midnight. Just as I expected I would. I no longer try to stay up late. It takes too long to recover. And I’m not sure “I was up all night reading” is a valid excuse for not showing up at work tomorrow.
But, I managed to do pretty well in my 16-hour readathon. My best readathon ever actually. I finished 4 books and read 1,154 pages. I was surprised at how long it took me to read Triangles (I finished the first three books in the same amount of time) but I’m still happy with my end result. I’ve never read four books in one day before.
- Which hour was most daunting for you? Honestly, 10am. Yes, 2 hours in I was already fighting the urge to nap. After that I was pretty steady. But I also knew I was going to bed at midnight. 🙂
- Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? I Heart You, You Haunt Me by Lisa Schroeder was great.
- Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? Maybe have the three memes – starting, midpoint, ending up a little earlier. I missed the first two because I had already posted exactly on the hour.
- What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? I think Trish and Erin did an amazing job as cheerleader captains. 🙂
- How many books did you read? 4
- What were the names of the books you read? The Phantom Tollbooth; I Heart You, You Haunt Me; Goodbye, Chunky Rice; Triangles
- Which book did you enjoy most? I Heart You, You Haunt Me
- Which did you enjoy least? Probably Triangles but only because it took me so long. I actually liked the book a lot.
- If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? —
- How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? Of course. I think I might try to do some official cheerleading next time. I haven’t done that yet.
Thanks organizers for a terrific event once again!
