Which hour was most daunting for you?
Hour 18 a.k.a. waking up and carrying on after only 4 hours sleep.
Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
Anything by Rainbow Rowell is a pretty good bet for readathons.
Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
It's probably too early to tell but seems a lot of the prize winners were US when there's lots of international/UK prizes. Would like to have seen a more even split. But maybe people haven't checked yet! Plus if any UK/int people want a prize and didn't get one I might be able to sort you out after all the hourly winners have been allocated ;)
What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
The sheer number of people and all the activity on Twitter was fantastic. Although at times a bit distracting! Had loads of support in Instagram too.
How many books did you read?
What were the names of the books you read?
Tinder by Sally Gardner, Landline by Rainbow Rowell, Friday Brown by Vikki Wakefield and The Forever Song by Julie Kagawa.
Which book did you enjoy most?
Which did you enjoy least?
Sad to say the first half of The Forever Song has been a bit disappointing.
How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
I've been doing this 3 years now so YES. Probably as a reader and will help behind the scenes again if I can.
