I had a blast! Thanks very much to the organizers and everyone who participated!
End of Event Meme:
Which hour was most daunting for you?
Hour 10 was midnight here, so I went to sleep. I might have held on until 2 or 3am but from experience I know that I would have been too tired the next day to do anything.
Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
Well, I recommend reading stuff that interests you most or perhaps trying out a genre or book that you’re curious about but haven’t tried before. Or try short stories.
Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
I was too busy reading to actually participate much but as far as I know, everything worked well.
How many books did you read?
I finished only one short story collection. I’m a slow reader so I expected that from previous years. However, I read a significant chunk from 2 other books and finished 2 comic book collections.
What were the names of the books you read?
Dark Side of the Sun, (a Farscape novel) around 100 pages
The Secret History of Moscow by Ekaterina Sedia, around 50 pages
Starship Vectors edited by Stephen Baxter, the three last short stories
Excalibur Classic volumes 3 and 4
Which book did you enjoy most?
The Excalibur comics. They’re an old favorite so it was great to reread them.
Which did you enjoy least?
None. All were interesting and I’m going to finish them.
If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
No I wasn’t.
How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
If I have the time, I’d be happy to participate again. Reader, most likely.
