End of Event Meme

I didn't fare so well this read-a-thon.  I've never been able to make it all night, but this time I didn't even make it past 9:30 PM; not sure why I was so tired.  I just got up as well, so I didn't get any reading in this morning.

1. Which hour was most daunting for you?  the 9 PM really sleepy

2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? 
It's the little books that keep me going.  I try to add in children's books.

3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? 
It was great!

4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? 
The cheerleaders

5. How many books did you read? 
27 1/2

6. What were the names of the books you read? 
Too many to list...see past updates for titles

7. Which book did you enjoy most? 
Princess Hyacinth

8. Which did you enjoy least? 
How We Are Smart

9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? 

10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? 
very likely; reader

THANKS for participating! I do love the readAthon. I crashed, too and usually get up for the last few hours but I just woke up! ack. oh well. IT's good to see the cheerleaders were balanced out this year - I feel like I was not at all that good of one this year. anyway, CHEERS!

Glad you enjoyed the cheerleaders! Congrats on reading all those books! :)

It's not a competition - if you had run while you were reading then it was a total success!

Good Job you seemed to accomplish a lot. I will use children's books next time thanks for the idea

Hope you have recovered from the read-a-thon. I slept 11 hours yesterday...LOL

When you gotta sleep you gotta sleep. I think it's more about what works for you personally than forcing yourself to do something you can't or don't want to do.

Congratulations on a successful readathon!
