Which hour was most daunting for you?
I think if I hadn’t have caught the plague I might have made it through the night but I went to sleep at 3am which was hour 15.
Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
I thought all ny books were pretty good readathon choices.
Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
Find the cure for the common cold?
What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
Was surprised at the amount of cheerleader activity despite the large number of readers. Well done!
How many books did you read?
4.5 plus a few chapters of a non fiction book.
What were the names of the books you read?
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins, The Yellow Wall-Paper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, The Earth is Singing by Vanessa Curtis, Apple and Rain by Sarah Crossan, Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor + You Say Potato by Ben + David Crystal
Which book did you enjoy most?
They were all pretty good in different ways. I’d probably say DoBaS at a push but haven’t quite finished it yet.
Which did you enjoy least?
Feels unfair to answer when I liked them all.
How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
Definitely, I loved readathon! I’d stick with reading and challenge hosting.
