Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-A-Thon
Guess who fell asleep at hour … fell is actually a little too soft of a word. Plummet would be better. Around hour 15/16 I decided to cook up a stir-fry, thinking it would give me a nice boost and it worked – I read for about another 2 hours. After that I was out. Don’t think I’d moved until around noon-ish when the dogs starting wrestling on top of me and rolled me right off the sofa.
End Of Event Meme
1. Which hour was most daunting for you?
Considering I remember being wide-eyed and awake one minute and the next thing I know hitting the floor under a pile of growling fur and teeth … probably the most daunting was long after the Read-A-Thon had ended :P
2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
No specific titles, I think the key is to stock your pile with books you’ve been dying to read, various lengths, types and formats. Variety is the perfect way to tackle all your moods during the 24 hours.
3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
No. The Read-A-Thon was perfect. Organizers and Cheerleaders were amazing as always!
4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
Everything worked well, the excitement and enthusiasm were the main thing that made this so great. Also it was totally awesome to see readers doing vlogs – those were too fun!
5. How many books did you read?
6 in total. Although one was an audio-book (On Writing) and one I listened to for an hour but then continued reading the actual book version (Haunting of Hill House)
7. Which book did you enjoy most?
Actually, I enjoyed all of them.
8. Which did you enjoy least?
I’d have to say Life Inside: A Memoir – even though I enjoyed reading it, I think because it is a non-fiction dealing with pretty serious issues reading it slower and allowing for more time to digest the information may have made it more enjoyable.
9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
No way, the Cheerleaders were fantastic! They did a wonderful job!
10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
Definitely I’d like to participate again. This time I enjoyed the Read-A-Thon in a relaxed manner, concentrating on having fun. So I would love to be a Cheerleader next time, visiting all the readers and offering support and enthusiastic motivation.
