Dewey's 24 Hour Read a Thon: The Wrap Up!


Well, I didn't post a wrap up last night! I ended up just going to bed. That can happen! I also didn't end up reading as much as I hoped but having a day mainly carved out for just relaxing and reading: well I can't ask for much more than that right now so I loved every minute of it!

Let's see how it all broke down:

  1. Which hour was most daunting for you? I didn't really push myself much this year. Sorry! I read until I wasn't having fun with it anymore and then I stopped. It was just that kind of read a thon for me this year!
  2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? Well I read 1/2 of two books! The most entertaining of the two was definitely The Queen's Lover by Francine Du Plessix Gray. Perhaps because it was fiction.
  3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? Nope! I love everything about it! (Except the West Coast start time but that's my own problem with early mornings!)
  4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? I liked it all!
  5. How many books did you read? Well ... not my best showing. I was easily distracted by the amazingly warm day we had we (we get like 5 of these a year!) so I finished one book and started half of another. 
  6. What were the names of the books you read? How to Love an American Man by Kristinne Gasbarre (review coming on Tuesday) and The Queen's Lover by Francine Du Plessix Gray (review coming on Friday). 
  7. Which book did you enjoy most? Maybe The Queen's Lover by Francine Du Plessix Gray although I've only read half of it at this point.
  8. Which did you enjoy least? I enjoyed both books so I am not answering this one!
  9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? N/A
  10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? As long as it fits in my schedule (who knows what October will bring!) then I will for sure be there!
How was your read a thon?!

  3. It's good to stop when you're not having fun! You don't want it to be a chore. Sounds like you had a good time anyway :)
