Readathon: End of the Event Meme

1. Which hour was most daunting to you? Hour 15. It was daunting because I put the kids to bed, thinking I would go back and read. Instead I ended up going to sleep and waking up five minutes before the read-a-thon ended. Second time in a row that happened.

2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? The Hunger Games trilogy, picture books, Locomotion by Jacqueline Woodson. . . anything short is always helpful.

3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? Can a link for the cheer-leading blog be included on the read-a-thon main blog?

4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? Everything!

5. How many books did you read? 4 1/2

6. What were the names of the books you read? And the Pursuit of Happiness by Maira Kalman, Amulet 1: The Stonekeeper by Kazu Kibuishi, Amulet 2: The Stonekeeper’s Curse by Kazu Kibuishi, Amulet 3: The Cloud Searchers by Kazu Kibuishi.

7. What book did you enjoy most? And the Pursuit of Happiness by Maira Kalman

8. Which did you enjoy least? None. They were all good reads.

9. If you were a cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s cheerleaders? Have fun!

10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? Very likely! I plan on being a reader and a cheerleader once again.

    It sounds like you had a very successful read-a-thon!

  5. Sleep is VERY good! I laid down to take a nap and only woke up because my phone went off – I had set the alarm with the most annoying song I could find. LOL

    You did so well — reading and cheering! Oh, except for that little nap maybe… :\ I know how frustrated *I* would be if I woke up 5 mins before the end! 😦

    But I’ve enjoyed having you around! See you next time! (And in between of course 😉

    I think the hours 15-18 are the hardest for most, actually! They were the hardest for me 🙂 You did a great job!

    You did an awesome job, even with a sleep break!
