Read-a-thon : Hour 24, End of Event meme

End of the event meme (finally, we got there!)

1. Which hour was most daunting for you? Hour 20 was difficult, because the Man of the House left for the week and he was the one cheering me on (every time I got close to the computer, he’d say “Aren’t you supposed to read?”) Hour 23 was definitely the one though, I felt so tired; hour 24 will go fast, because I’m filling this meme, I’ll go around some blogs and then I’ll read the last 2 chapters of my book.
2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? Wake is a beautiful book to read, when night falls and things get quiet, but before you become very sleepy.
3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? Nothing I can think of; this was great! 😀
4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? I can’t compare, but I’ll say I loved the blog with the updates by the hours, it made it easy to know what was going on, when and where.
5. How many books did you read? 5! It was my goal, but next time I am hoping to have my day completely free so I can read more.
6. What were the names of the books you read? Coraline, Wake, Audrey wait!, Antigone, Ten discoveries that rewrote history
7. Which book did you enjoy most? Oh, it’s too hard to say! Coraline will definitely become a favorite of mine, it’s magical, but Antigone is a classic I can’t tire of.
8. Which did you enjoy least? Ten discoveries that rewrote history, for many reasons. I really wished I could have gotten more from it.
9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? Keep on cheering!! (useful, isn’t it?)
10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
Very likely! I loved it, and I was truely sad I had all those little things that I had to do in between the pages. I would still be a reader, and maybe a prize donor.

    Reading Wake would put me to sleep simply for the reason that I’m reading about people sleeping! Great job on the full 24 hours1
