24 HOUR READ-A-THON--END OF EVENT SURVEY


It's over. *combination sigh of relief/sob of despair*  Now I must complete this end of event survey before I collapse from exhaustion.

1. Which hour was most daunting for you? hour 23...I actually fell asleep for 20 minutes and woke with a start...and went back to reading.

2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?  I haven't found one yet.  Whoever does know...let me know.


3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?  no improvements needed, IMO.

4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?  I think the Twitter chatting is wonderful!

5. How many books did you read?  I didn't start reading until 5/6pm CT.  I read 104 pages of Dante's Journey by JC Marino and 100 pages of A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin.  I'm enjoying Dante's Journey, but I have to say that A Game of Thrones is absolutely excellent!


6. What were the names of the books you read?  see above


7. Which book did you enjoy most?  see #5

 
8. Which did you enjoy least? not applicable


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?  Oh, yes...I will definitely participate again! I love it, even if I do not get much reading done.  As I said above, the chatting on Twitter is great fun.  I will most likely be a reader again.  Once I get my time management skills in order, I might take on cheerleading in the future. =O)



Just a reminder...my week long Spring read-a-thon, Spring's Serenity Read-A-Thon, is coming up at the end of this month.  I will have the sign up post up tomorrow.  I hope you will join me for a laid back week of read-a-thon reading.

I apologize for word verification, but I turned it off and had close to 50 spam comments within 12 hours (nobody has time for that) so I had to turn it back on. Sorry!

This blog is Award Free. I appreciate your thinking of me for an award, but please know that your comments are my award. Thank you!

  1. Congrats on doing the readathon! I'm in a bit of a reading drought. I might be out of it by your spring readathon. I love the picture you have for it!!

  2. Sounds like this was totally enjoyable. I joined one year and had fun, but just did not have time to devote this time.

  3. Oh, I like the questions at the end of the readathon. :) Great idea.

    I'm about ready to do a readathon of my own here soon. :) I like to just take a weekend and get lost away in my bedroom for a long while. But I think that will not be for a few weeks. Actually, now that I think about it not until May. That is a bummer.
