Which hour was most daunting for you?
Hour Twenty - I was cheering but I was so sleepy.
Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
Little Blog on the Prairie was really funny & The Golden Mean definitely kept me interested. All the M.C. Beaton books are great too.
Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
Nope, it worked really well.
What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
This was the first time I actually made snacks ahead of time. That worked really well, having those snacks to look forward to. Also, we read in our library this year and that was really comfy. I also like taking the pics every hour. It's nice to be able to look back on those later. And for us this year we started on Friday with a book signing and finished on Sunday with a book sale so it was a whole literary weekend. That was cool. I also think doing the read-a-thon with my husband and best friend makes it that much more fun.
How many books did you read?
I finished two (one I had been reading ahead of time) and read from one other.
What were the names of the books you read?
Little Blog on the Prairie by Cathleen Davitt Bell
The Golden Mean by Nick Bantock
Death of an Outsider by M.C. Beaton
Which book did you enjoy most?
Little Blog on the Prairie
Which did you enjoy least?
None, I had really good books this time. I did look at one book (The Green Angel by Alice Hoffman) and decided not to start it. Not sure if I will be reading it or not.
If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
I think spreading out when you cheer works well. I did one in the afternoon, one in the evening and two late at night.
How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
Oh I'll be participating for sure! I love the reading and the cheering so I'll be doing both.
