Read-a-Thon The last hour

deweys-readathonbutton1. Which hour was most daunting for you?
11th hour. It was I think 4.30 in the night or morning and it was way too difficult to stay awake
2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
Bad girls don’t die which I was the first book I read. Also I think Scott Westerfields books would be really good.
3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
NO!!! I think it was perfect just the way it was.
4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
Ummm…everything? I don’t know. I think everything was good. I guess Twitter added a new dimension to it.
5. How many books did you read?
6. What were the names of the books you read?
Bad girls don’t die
Memoirs of a fortune teller
The Techyon Web.
I also read a couple of stories from Fragile Things which were a little weird 🙂
7. Which book did you enjoy most?
The first 2 were good in their own way.
8. Which did you enjoy least?
The Techyon Web. Too much scientific jargon. But the story is interesting.
9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
No. They were all great. I did a little cheerleading even though I hadn’t signed up as one and it’s definitely not easy.
10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
I will definitely participitate next time. I would like to do both the roles next time. Reading as well cheerleading.

The power went off during the last hour of Read-a-Thon. So I had to wait for almost 2 hours before updating. I spent the time taking a bath and getting ready to go out for dinner with a couple of friends. Even though I am tired I cannot back out. I’ll check out other posts when I come back.

A huge thank you to Hannah (WordLily), Ana (Nymeth), and Trish (Hey Lady!) for doing such a fab job with the Read-a-Thon. And yes, three cheers to Dewey to whose memory this Read-a-Thon was dedicated to.

  1. hey there – nap much today?! I haven’t and I’m starting to get punchy all over again.
    Did any of the twitterers do a post on twitting the read-a-thon? I’m just curious as a non-twitter .. what did I miss exactly?


    1. Hey Care, hope you’re feeling better 🙂

      I have no idea if anyone did a post on it, but it was pretty active on Twitter, with people posting their updates after every few mins and cheering everyone along. It was motivating. You should have joined Twitter if only for the read-A-Thon 🙂


  2. Great job! I fell asleep at midnight my time but woke up and started reading again about 2 hours before it ended. I could’ve used a power outage to help me focus on reading. Then I wouldn’t have been online. 😉


  3. Great job! I agree that the organizers did a great job doing this. I hope to participate more next time around as well. I want to host a mini challenge and get more reading done.
