I had a wonderful time even though I wasn’t able to keep awake the whole time. I’ll definitely have to think about time management more the next time. I even won a prize at Dana‘s mini-challenge!
1. Which hour was most daunting for you?
After 4 AM here which would have been hour 17. Fell asleep.
2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
That would depend on what the reader is interested in. But I’d definitely recommend “To Say Nothing of the Dog” by Willis. Of course, it’s not short.
3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
Nope. Everything was great! Thanks very much for the awesome organizers!
4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
Everything worked well.
5. How many books did you read?
I didn’t finish any of them but I reached my goals for the read-a-thon.
6. What were the names of the books you read?
“To Say Nothing of the Dog” by Willis. I listened it around 6 hours which is about 1/3 of the whole book.
“the Spirit Gate” by Elliott. I read 102 pages so I reached my goal!
“the Empress of Mars” by Kage Baker. I read 140 pages so I reached my goal!
7. Which book did you enjoy most?
Both Willis’ and Baker’s books were very enjoyable. Perhaps Willis a bit more because it has more comedy.
8. Which did you enjoy least?
The Spirit Gate. For some reason I didn’t click at all with Elliott’s writing style. Or maybe I’m still in epic fantasy fatigue. I just thought it’s terribly slllooowww.
9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
No, I wasn’t.
10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
Very! Probably as a reader but I might take on a mini-challenge.
