Well, it's the end of the read-a-thon, and of course I wimped out on the end! I fell asleep around hour 17, I think. I left the TV on, and figured I'd just nap and get up in a bit. But I forgot that I'd accidentally turned on the timer. So the TV turned off on me, and I didn't wake up for hours. And by then I'd been so deep in sleep, I didn't want to drag myself out of it! So I just turned out the light and went back to bed.
End of Event Meme:
- Which hour was most daunting for you? Well, I'd say hour 17, given that's when I fell asleep!
- Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? Nope. I usually just read whatever I'm already reading. Sometimes they may be high-interest, sometimes not. Sometimes (like this time) they are huge books. I've been reading an 800-pager this time!
- Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? Nope. Everyone did awesome!
- What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? I think the prize form was a good addition. It'll probably help the organizers on the back end.
- How many books did you read? Still reading. Didn't complete one.
- What were the names of the books you read? I've been reading Natchez Burning by Greg Iles, and The Conditions of Love by Dale M. Kushner.
- Which book did you enjoy most? I am loving Natchez Burning!
- Which did you enjoy least? Well, that would just leave the other one, but I am actually enjoying it as well.
- If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? I am most definitely not a cheerleader.
- How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? Definitely. I'll always be a reader. I've been participating for...I think five years now.
Thanks so much to all of the hosts, organizers and cheerleaders (as well as donators of prizes). You all did a great job! See you back here next fall!
