Readathon Mid-Event Survey

1. What are you reading right now? Without Blood by Alessandro Baricco. It’s a fantastic read.

2. How many books have you read so far? Nine

3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon? Skellig, Pysche in a Dress, Cannery Row, Sonata for Miriam, and Topdog/Underdog

4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day? No. I have all the kids with me. I have a ton of movies for them to watch, books for them to read, and food for them to eat.

5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those? I’ve had a ton since I’m a reader and cheerleader. You just have to remember it’s not a race. The purpose of the read-a-thon is remember Dewey and for all of us to do what we love the most: reading.

6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far? The great addition Twitter is to the read-a-thon.

7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? The read-a-thon is perfect every year. I just want to thank Trish, Nymeth, and Wordlily for the great job they did putting all of this together.

8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year? Nothing!

9. Are you getting tired yet? Nope. I’m on my third pot of coffee and I’ve had a nap.

10. Do you have any tips for other Readers or Cheerleaders, something you think is working well for you that others may not have discovered? Make sure you have enough snacks around that you don’t have to really cook, read small books, naps are your best friend, and have fun!

    Yes, it is important to remember it’s not a race. I’ve been trying to get to all the blogs as a cheerleader, but maybe I need to slow down just a bit. And I agree, the three ladies who organized this did a fantastic job – I am so impressed

    Good luck with the rest of the Read-a-Thon!
