Readathon - Hour 13 Challenge and Update

I am back to get serious! I have only finished one book - The Lost Hours by Karen White - it was a super book! I am just beginning The Girl She Used to Be and after that I am not sure. I plan on trying to spend more time reading and less time on challenges tonight (so what am I doing here right?) I took a break to go out to eat with my husband.

Mid-Event Survey:
1. What are you reading right now?

The Girl She Used to Be by David Cristofano

2. How many books have you read so far?

Only 1

3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?

Finishing Murder, Mayhem and a Fine Man by Claudia Mair Burney

4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day?

Yes - our 4 year old went to spend the day (and night) with his Aunt. I considered finding a babysitter for my hubby. . . jk

5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?

Only interruptions were of my own choosing.

6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?

Surprised that I haven't gotten as much read as I have wanted to!

7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?

This is my first readathon so I had no expectations - There are things that I personally need to improve before the next one - but you guys are doing great!

8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year?

Read more - Cheerleaders have been great! Thanks for all the encouraging posts!

9. Are you getting tired yet?

Yeah - I am a little tired - but I am always a little tired!

10. Do you have any tips for other Readers or Cheerleaders, something you think is working well for you that others may not have discovered?

Nope - but feel free to post any tips for me in my comments!

A babysitter for the hubby...not that's an idea! Glad to hear you liked The Lost Hours. I started that yesterday, but I set it aside for other books. You're doing great so far. Have fun!

Yes, it's the hubby, isn't it? Always the hubby. Must arrange next read-a-thon to correspond to an appropriate outing for hubby.

CHEERS! I always thought I was a fast reader but these read-a-thons sure seem to slow me down. or something. Happy R-A-T!
