Read-a-thon: End of Event meme

  1. Which hour was most daunting for you? I think it was around 20 to 23.
  2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? Coraline by Neil Gaiman was perfect!
  3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? I'd like more lead-up hype to get everyone excited. This time around the website wasn't even updated with the info about the next read-a-thon.
  4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? I think everything went pretty smoothly.
  5. How many books did you read? 5 (almost 6! So close!)
  6. What were the names of the books you read?
    1. The Twits by Roald Dahl
    2. Coraline by Neil Gaiman
    3. Against the Fall of Night by Arthur C. Clarke
    4. The Dark Victorian: Risen by Elizabeth Watasin
    5. Charmed Season 9 Volume 1 by Paul Ruditis
    6. The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar and Six More by Roald Dahl (didn't quite finish this one - only 16 pages left!)
  7. Which book did you enjoy most? That's a tough one... I'll go with the Charmed graphic novel.
  8. Which did you enjoy least? I liked them all, but Against the Fall of Night took me too long, which made me get a bit grumpy.
  9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? I was not a cheerleader, but my advice to cheerleaders is always to take an extra moment to personalise your comments! It's so much nicer than a generic cheer.
  10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? I will definitely participate again as a reader, and I'd consider doing a mini-challenge, if I could think of an idea for one!

And now the sun has risen, it looks like a beautiful day... and I'm off to bed. :P Thanks to everyone who followed my progress, cheered me on, or just entertained me with their own great posts!

Now, time to start planning my pile for October... haha, just joking!
