Readathon: Denoumet


I completed the Readathon!  Here is the end of event meme:

  1. Which hour was most daunting for you?  Probably around the twenty hour mark when things started quieting down.
  2. 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.
  3. 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?
  4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?  The Twitter end of things was probably the best part.
  5. How many books did you read? Five
  6. 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.
  7. Which book did you enjoy most?  Mr. Darcy
  8. Which did you enjoy least? The Pendragon Legend.  Not a bad book, but a terrible choice for the Readathon.
  9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
  10. 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!
