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

End of Event


Questions


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)
Dragolin
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.
