End of Event Meme

1. Which hour was most daunting for you?

Hour Twenty - I was so tired!

2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?

Anything by Robyn Carr

3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?

Nope, it's excellent as is!

4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?

For me it was just having books that really held my attention.  Also, going out for dinner but staying home for lunch helped too.

5. How many books did you read?

I finished two (one of which I had started before the RAT) and read a bit from three others.

6. What were the names of the books you read?

Deep in the Valley by Robyn Carr (Finished)
Not Becoming My Mother by Ruth Reichl (Started and Finished)
Her Royal Spyness by Rhys Bowen
Girl at Sea by Maureen Johnson
Two For the Dough by Janet Evanovich

7. Which book did you enjoy most?

Both Deep in the Valley and Not Becoming My Mother were excellent.

8. Which did you enjoy least?

Girl at Sea - Just not in the mood for it, really.

9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?

Just work through the list of blogs and enjoy your time cheering.  Don't necessarily start from the end of the list or the beginning as sometimes the middle listed blogs get left out.

10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?

I'll most definitely be there!  Reading and Cheering!  I had been in a big reading slump before this years RAT.  I had an excellent time this RAT and it really got me back into a reading mood.

    Having good books is definitely key. I didn't make such great picks this time, but anyway I'll try again in April.

  2. Thank you for the cheering advice and for offering your feedback! You have no idea how much we appreciate it. :) --Andi
