Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon: Wrap-up post.

1. Which hour was most daunting for you?
Uh, what was between three and six am? I only started laying into the caffeine at six, and then I was magically ready to go. Plus my siblings came down to ooze energy around.

2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
NOT Emma. NOT Star Wars: 501. Ummmmmmmmmm. I’d say stick with authors you know? *looks longingly at Rick Rordian*

3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
Just what I said at the mid point? More challenges that didn’t take a full post to enter? I like prizes! I was just all read-ey, so I couldn’t enter them.

4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
The Cheerleaders were great! And I liked the music videos on the main page.

5. How many books did you read?
11! 😀

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

  • Emma, Jane Austen (Sponsored Book)
  • Is Your Momma a Llama? Written by Deborah Guarino, Illustrated by Steven Kellogg (Sponsored Book)
  • CLICK, CLACK, MOO. Cows That Type. By Doreen Cronin. Pictures by Betsey Lewis (Sponsored Book)
  • Paranormalcy, Kiersten White
  • 2nd Samuel, GOD, (Sponsored Book)
  • Passages: Darien’s Rise, Paul McCusker (Sponsored Book)
  • Unnatural Death, Dorothy L. Sayers
  • Song Of Solomon (Sponsored Book)
  • Intertwined, Gena Showalter
  • The Deadlies: Felix Takes The Stage, Kathryn Lansky
  • Star Wars: 501st, Karen Traviss (Sponsored Book)

7. Which book did you enjoy most?
Probably that’s a tie between Paranormalcy and Unnatural Death. After that I was just loopy, but I could still tell when a book was a few points short of a full plot.

8. Which did you enjoy least?
Star Wars: 501st. I was so tired. And they kept TALKING, instead of FIGHTING. I was DESCIEVED.

9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
😀 Keep up the good work!

10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
I am very likely to participate again. Possibly as a cheerleader AND a reader.

Pages Read: 2456
Drinks: 1 Coffee, 1 Tea, and about 6 Sodas

Plans for the Day: Sweet, blessed sleep

Books I’ve pledged to read in 24 hours: 7

  1. I particularly thought that 501st played to Karen Traviss' weakness, not her strength. Plus there was very little plot. Also I was reading it after 20 hours, so I'm not a really great judge. 😛

    But- not her best work.

    *is shy at being accused of insanity*
