Mid-Event Survey

1. What are you reading right now?
Friday Brown by Vikki Wakefield

2. How many books have you read so far?
Nearly 3

3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?
I haven’t thought that far ahead! If I read a 4th, I’ll be happy!

4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day?
I usually spend my weekends with my boyfriend, but other than packing him off home, it’s a fairly normal weekend.

5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
Just faffing around on the internet interruptions πŸ˜‰

6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
I’m amazed at how many people are doing it this time and how much activity is going on on Twitter.

7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
Nope (well not from this tired brain).

8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year?
Try to go to bed later on Friday and have a proper lie in on the Saturday.

9. Are you getting tired yet?

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?
Lots of water. Half the time the tiredness is deydration.

    The hydration tip is a good one. PLUS it's very hard to fall asleep too thoroughly if you're having to pee every five minutes. πŸ˜€

    Good luck for the next stage of the readathon, you're doing SO WELL, I'm impressed with us both for managing to stay coherent this long. I've also been baffled by the amount of chattering going on around Twitter, I feel like if I go down that rabbit hole that'll be the next hour gone! Damn you, social media sirens, luring me with your clickable links of goodness. Aaaaand there's 1am talking. >:)

    Hmm, good point on the water, I wouldn't have thought of that. Especially if you're focusing on the caffeine.

    Water. Good idea. I'm going to get some just as soon as I finish this round of cheering. You're doing great! I hope I can make it to 19-20 hours! #teamwordsworth

    Dude, you're an hour 15 winner! (Is it hour 15? I've lost all feeling of time…) CONGRATULATIONS! πŸ˜€
