Dewey's 24 Hour #Readathon - I tried (End of Event Survey)


Well, another 24 hour read-a-thon comes to a close. My attempted reading time was 10-11 hours after I returned from my outings yesterday. Of course, much of that time was interrupted by...kids, eating snacks, watching the Prince tribute on Saturday Night Live. I almost managed to stay up all night, but I kept falling asleep so that inhibited my finishing the book I was reading.
  1. Which hour was most daunting for you? Hour 20-21 and final hour
  2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? N/A
  3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next season? I'm not fond of these specific question surveys. I prefer more organic "updates."
  4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? It seemed the same as times before to me.
  5. How many books did you read? 1/2 of a 400 page book. 200 pages. I'm a slow reader. :-(
  6. What were the names of the books you read? The Troop by Nick Cutter
  7. Which book did you enjoy most? A foregone conclusion since I only read the one. 
  8. Which did you enjoy least? N/A
  9. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?  Indeed. Reader only.
Luckily, my Spring into Horror Read-a-Thon continues today until 11:59pm CT tonight. My plan is to finish The Troop and then try to read (and finish) Akhenaten: Dweller in Truth by Naguib Mahfouz, which is only 168 pages. We shall see if I succeed. 

How did your 24 hour reading go?

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!

  1. I think we should just stick to your week long readathons!
