It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

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.
