Another 24-hour read-a-thon has come and gone! I really enjoyed myself this year…I think I did more mini-challenges than ever before, and I visited a lot of new blogs. I also liked all of the books I chose to read, although I wish I could have read even more. Altogether I read from 4 books, finished 2, and read 1 from beginning to end — 823 pages total. Here are my answers for the end-of-event meme:
Which hour was most daunting for you? — Uh, whatever hour I stopped! I think it was Hour 17.
Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? — I’d definitely recommend Gemma Burgess’ A Girl Like You, which I read this year, and also anything by Kristan Higgins or Julie James if you’re into romances. Last year I read Tina Fey’s Bossypants and found it a quick and hysterical read!
Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? — I honestly don’t have any complaints this year; from my perspective, everything seemed to go really smoothly!
How many books did you read? — See above. 🙂
What were the names of the books you read? — A Natural History of Dragons by Marie Brennan (last half), A Girl Like You by Gemma Burgess, The Birth of Blue Satan by Patricia Wynn (first 100 pages or so), and The Count of Monte Cristo (about 7 chapters).
Which book did you enjoy most? — Really liked all of them!
Which did you enjoy least? — I honestly don’t have a least favorite.
If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? — I wasn’t a cheerleader, but I do want to thank all of you who cheered for this read-a-thon. Your hard work kept my morale high!
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 definitely be back. 🙂 I will certainly be a reader, but I’d love to host a mini-challenge at some point too.
