1) Which hour was most daunting for you?
Honestly, I think the last two are hardest.
2) Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
I liked "The Turn of the Screw" by Henry James
"The Little Prince" by Antoine de Sainte-Exupiry
any of the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich
3) Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
4) What do you think worked really well in this years' Read-a-thon?
I really enjoyed the mini-challenges, the cheering, and getting to read so many book blogs.
5) How many books did you read?
I'm going to predict that I'll have 5 finished, even though I'm not quite done with number 5.
6) What were the names of the books you read?
-"Come On Shore and We Will Kill and Eat You All: A New Zealand Story" by Christina Thompson
-"The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop" by Lewis Buzbee
-"All Quiet on the Western Front" by Erich Maria Remarque (not too sure of spelling right now)
-"The Turn of the Screw" by Henry James
-"A Royal Pain" by Rhys Bowen
7) Which book did you enjoy most?
It's a toss-up between Turn of the Screw, Yellow-Lighted, and Royal Pain, all for different reasons.
8) Which did you enjoy last?
Without a doubt, hands down, "All Quiet...". It's a wonderful book and very affecting (effecting?), but not a good motivator, kind of gross to listen to while eating, and generally depressing. I liked the book very much, but it was NOT a good pick for me for this 'thon.
9) If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year's Cheerleaders?
I wasn't a Cheer-er this year, but I'm thinking about it for next time.
10) How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you likely take next time?
I'll read again for sure, and maybe cheer. There were lots of good mini-challenges, so I'll think about doing one too.
Now...finish that darn book!
