1. Which hour was most daunting for you?
Hour 21, when I decided to call it quits, was the hardest hour for me. I just wanted to lay on the sofa and "pretend" to read!
2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
Young adult novels are great read-a-thon picks. Memoirs are also a good choice.
3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
This was my tenth time participating in the Read-a-thon, and I thought things went well.
4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
I enjoyed the visits from the Cheerleaders.
5. How many books did you read?
I finished two books - and I also read parts of three others.
6. What were the names of the books you read?
The Year My Son and I Were Born by Kathryn Lynard Soper and Liar & Spy by Rebecca Stead.
7. Which book did you enjoy most?
Both books were great!
8. Which did you enjoy least?
9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
If at all possible, I will participate in the next read-a-thon! This is one of the few things I do that is just for me. I'd like to be a reader again - but I'm also thinking that it might be fun to try cheerleading.
