Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon - My First Update #Readathon

I'll go ahead and answer this mid-event survey even though I've only participated for one hour so far (details below). Official update below the survey.

Mid-Event Survey

1. What are you reading right now? The Grip of God, Rebecca Hazell
2. How many books have you read so far? 0
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon? Daughter of the Gods, Stephanie Thornton
4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day? Not really, although the boys are with their dad this weekend so no interruptions on that end. *wink*
5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?  Self-inflicted due to an outing with my mom today. I don't anticipate any more interruptions.
6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?  I'm surprised I haven't had a cheerleader visit me yet. Usually that happens right away. My good friend, Rebecca, and one of your co-hosts, did stop by last night though, after I posted my sign up/participation post. *hugs to her*
7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? nothing I can think of right now

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.

    I'm happy to see you got to do some reading. I totally spaced on the RaT even seeing it every where!

  2. We cut off cheer-for-me sign-ups on Wednesday (23rd), so I can't remember where you were in the sign-up lineup. That would be the only thing keeping them from here, that I can think of. We hated to do it but had to given the huge amount of readers and whatnot. We have over 800 readers this time. An all-time high! Squee! And GAH! at the same time.
