Readathon Wrap Up

So, even though this is like the 4th or 5th time I have done this readathon, my husband comes in at lunch today and says - don't you need to go read?  If I would have been thinking clearly, I would have said Yep and disappeared for the rest of the afternoon!  But I told the truth and let him know it was only a 24 hour readathon. 

So now for the wrap up

1. Which hour was most daunting for you?  This would have been hour 18 - the one where I gave up and went to bed!

2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?  No - I wouldn't attempt anything too meaty that takes too much concentration!

3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? You guys did a great job this year!  

4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?  I liked the meme's where you just had the Mr. Linky.  I had done some of the challenges, and then when I went back to read other comments, couldn't find the one that I thought I had left for the challenge (Of course, this could be operator error. . .)

5. How many books did you read?  I only read 1 1/2 - which was good with my eye!

6. What were the names of the books you read? A Dog's Way Home and most of The Comforts of Home.  It's funny because A Dog's Way Home was set in Harmony Gap, North Carolina and The Comforts of Home is in Harmony, Texas.

7. Which book did you enjoy most?  The Comforts of Home

8. Which did you enjoy least?  Well, that would leave the other one, A Dog's Way Home, which was very good as well!

9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?  No advice, I think they do a great job!

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 participate.  I would like to take a role next time, as either a cheerleader or a challenge meme host maybe.

I'm impressed that you made it to hour 18 - I never could have lasted that long.
