Read-a-Thon: End of Event Meme

1. Which hour was most daunting for you?  The 2 AM hour.  That was when I finally had to sleep.
2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? Not going to give titles, but when I started to get tired, I switched to YA which are faster reads.  That really helped.
3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?  This is only my 2, so I'm still learning about everything myself.
4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?  Using Twitter.  It helped us get a lot of exposure and keep up w/everyone easier.
5. How many books did you read? 9
6. What were the names of the books you read? Maybelle Bunny of the North; The Light, The Dark & Ember Between; Chicken Butt; A Book; Going Too Far; Everything is Fine; Rita & Whatsit; Rita & Whatsit at the Beach; Milo and Jazz-Case of the Stinky Socks.  I started Private Midnight and Follow Me, but did not finish them.
7. Which book did you enjoy most?  Everything is Fine
8. Which did you enjoy least?  Private Midnight, which is why I put it down early on.
9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? n/a
10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?  I will definitely participate, as a reader.

I just read Everything is Fine last week but haven't read it yet. Isn't she the weirdest character you've ever read about?! Great job with the readathon!

9 books! That's fantastic! I didn't even think of getting any YA for the read-a-thon. I'll definitely look into those for next time.

I had to catch a few z's too. Way to go on getting as much accomplished as you did.
