I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

End of Event


1. Which hour was most daunting for you?
since I'd been up for so long already, I crashed soon after hour 7

2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
I started Justine Larbalestier's Magic or Madness trilogy - too late to finish during the read-a-thon but I'll finish book 2 before going to sleep. I'm thinking this is personal so you should stock up on books you've been waiting to read or new releases from favorite authors. Maybe a couple of old favorite.

3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
My only complaint, that isn't really, is that not everyone turned off word verification. I just wanted a quick post but my computer is old enough that it seemed to take forever. I don't think that's something admin could do anything about.

4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
I loved it all. Sometimes I had trouble deciphering all the posts but it may have been because I was tired.

5. How many books did you read? 5+

6. What were the names of the books you read?
Dragonling, vol 2 (3 titles in one binding)
Thanksgiving at the Inn
Magic or Madness
Ghouls Don't Scoop Ice Cream
part of Magic Lessons

7. Which book did you enjoy most?
it's a toss between Thanksgiving at the Inn and the Magic or Madness books

8. Which did you enjoy least?
Ghouls Don't Scoop Ice Cream. I only read it because it was sitting on the desk and I was waiting for something to load. I felt I had to finish it but it wasn't any fun. It was a re-read.

9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
not a cheerleader but I may be next time, depends on when in April

10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
I'd like to help with prizes (I could make bookmarks). I want to cheer for at least an hour and read. I don't think I'm ready to host a mini-challenge yet.
