4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day?  not really

5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?  of course...I have 7 and 8 year old boys and a husband who doesn't have a clue...LOL! How do I deal?  As patiently as possible!.

8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year?  I'm hoping next time I won't have a book sale since I can't resist.  I need to try to be more dedicated!

9. Are you getting tired yet?  nope

10. Do you have any tips for other Readers or Cheerleaders, something you think is working well for you that others may not have discovered?  none...sorry! I'm not the best read-a-thon mentor. =O)


Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. It means so much.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. You are doing great, Michelle! Especially despite all of your distractions. Keep up the good reading!

  2. Glad you made it. I've been distracted and sleepy so reading has been slow!

    I love Ellen Page- too tired to go comment on that post,lol

  3. Thanks Rebecca and Bard Girl! I'm trying. =O)

    Hang in there Deb!

  4. You have a beautiful blog! Just taking some time out to visit people and see what there is to see before starting in on a new book! Good Luck with your reading!
