I completed the Readathon! Here is the end of event meme:
- Which hour was most daunting for you? Probably around the twenty hour mark when things started quieting down.
- Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? Mr. Darcy Broke My Heart was a great book for the Readathon--I should have started with that one instead of The Pendragon Legend.
- Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? Maybe space the prizes out more so the people who win something later in the Readathon feel like have as good as a selection as the people who win early on?
- What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? The Twitter end of things was probably the best part.
- How many books did you read? Five
- What were the names of the books you read? A Conspiracy of Kings, The Pendragon Legend, Isis, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court (audiobook), Mr. Darcy Broke My Heart.
- Which book did you enjoy most? Mr. Darcy
- Which did you enjoy least? The Pendragon Legend. Not a bad book, but a terrible choice for the Readathon.
- If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
- How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? I would love to participate in the next Readathon, although I'm thinking I might be a Cheerleader next time.
Next Readathon I think I'm going to get up early to start with everyone else. I had the same thought during the last Readathon, but I just couldn't do it this time around--to tired! But maybe the planets will align next time.
Overall, I had fun with the Readathon, but I felt seriously out of sorts during it for some reason. I also didn't get very much read, in all honesty--I'm not sure I read significantly more than I do on an average day! This is kind of why I've decided to focus on Cheerleading next time. I've also been thinking of hosting a mini-challenge, if I don't forget what my idea is.
Overall it was a great 24 hours. Thank you to everyone for reading with me and cheering me on!
