Read-A-Thon Ends

It is about two hours since Dewey’s 24-hour read-a-thon has ended. This was my first time participating in the read-a-thon and I had a great time doing so. I didn’t read many books in this time, my first book was slow going, but I did enjoy my time. I ended up reading for nineteen of the twenty-four hours which was both a great and exhausting experience. I think listening to an audiobook for the last five hours would have worked when my eyes refused to work any longer but I am glad I went with a nap instead, sleep was much needed at that point. And now it’s time to answer some final questions about the read-a-thon.

  1. Which hour was the most daunting for you? I’m going to say around hour seventeen as that’s when my energy started to drop fast.
  2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor. I know there are others but can’t think of them at the moment.
  3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? I can’t think of any at the moment.
  4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? Honestly everything seemed to work well. The mini challenges looked really fun even if I didn’t participate in them.
  5. How many books did you read? I read three novels and one graphic novel.
  6. What were the names of the books you read? Song of Scarabaeus by Sara Creasy, The Young Black Stallion by Walter Farley, A Deadly Judgement by Jessica Fletcher and Lenore: Swirlies by Roman Dirge.
  7. Which book did you enjoy most? I’m going to say Lenore: Swirlies simply because it gave me something fun and light to read before diving into another novel.
  8. Which did you enjoy least? Song of Scarabaeus, it just never really took hold of my attention completely and took nine hours to get through.
  9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? I was not a cheerleader.
  10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? I think I will definitely be participating in the next read-a-thon. Though I would be sure that it didn’t follow a day long trip which left me exhausted before it even started. I would participate as a reader again.

Did you participate in the read-a-thon? If so how well did your day go? Also I want to once again give a huge thanks to all the cheerleaders who cheered me and others readers on, it is really nice to know there are people out there routing for you.
