Hello, Readathoners! The end is here! I did not do well this year, but I did finish my book and start a second one. So there's that.
End of Event Survey
  1. Which hour was most daunting for you? I gave in shortly after 1 AM and went to bed with a throbbing headache and aching legs from sitting. Getting old sucks.
  2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? I think a collection of short stories could be good to break things up. I had The Tsar of Love and Techno by Anthony Marra, but didn't read enough to need a break from longer stories.
  3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next season? Nope
  4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? Everything. The website has gotten easier to navigate over the years and find information. It continues to improve.
  5. How many books did you read? Finished one
  6. What were the names of the books you read? Finished When the Moon is Low by Nadia Hashimi, and began Wilde Lake by Laura Lippman
  7. Which book did you enjoy most? I've enjoyed both
  8. Which did you enjoy least? n/a
  9. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? I did my first readathon back in 2009. I'll always try to participate, and I'll always be a reader.
And that, my friends, is it for this readathon. I hope you enjoyed yourselves, and I'll see you right back here again in October.
