Which hour was most daunting for you?
No hour was especially daunting. Maybe hour one, since I was so tired beforehand. The hour I fell asleep was not daunting at all, because I simply just fell asleep before noticing it. Unfortunately I missed 6 hours of reading because of my unplanned sleeping, which makes me sad since I did only finish one book. But I’ve begun reading two books, and I am really into Ann of Green Gables which I was reading right to the very end. Since I got some extra sleep I will probably continue reading it until I finish it today.
Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
Anne of Green Gables really held me engaged even if that was the book I was holding over my head when I fell asleep. Just don’t lay down in a bed because you’re cold. Sit up and put on some warm clothes instead! :)
Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
For my own accord, I’m not sure. Maybe I should have two books already begun before the readathon so all I have to do is to finish them up. I had one book about 60% done at the start of the readathon, which I would have had time to finish if it were not for my unplanned 6 hour ”nap”.
What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
Twitter. I said it in the midway survey and I will say it again. Twitter was amazing for this event and it was so easy to connect with people when you needed to!
How many books did you read?
I finished one of my short reads (150 pages), I read about 100 pages in Outlander and about 200 pages in Anne of Green Gables. I also read a bit from Insurgent while I ate, since I have it both as an ebook and an audiobook, so I could easily listen to it while my hands where all sticky with pizza.
What were the names of the books you read?
* Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
* Insurgent by Veronica Roth
* Trent (Sweet Sixteen #4) by Daniel Parker
* Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery
Which book did you enjoy most?
Anne of Green Gables was the book that kept me going and going, but Outlander was the one that made me most excited. So I have a hard time decide between those two.
Which did you enjoy least?
None. Trent was not a very interesting and inspiring read, but it served its purpose of being a short and easily read book, so I will not complain. Also it is aimed at people about half my age (13 year olds), which most likely contribute to being not very inspiring.
If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
Not to fall asleep past your second cheer leading shift. I will make it up by doing some post-event cheering. Also, cheering on twitter was amazing! I really thought I wanted to cheer on blogs and was a bit disappointed when I was put on a twitter team. I was totally wrong! I could cheer on many more people, and it was easier getting some insight on how it was going for the people I cheered for!
How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
Very likely, both as reader and cheerleader, but it all depends on when it is. The October readathon often happen during my mid-term exams as the end of October, and if it will be like that again I’ll have to prioritize my studies so I can get my degree next year as planned.
I still have Kari and Marisa left to read, number #3 and #5 of the Sweet Sixteen series, and I will write here to remind myself to have them as short reads for the next readathon I participate in. May it be soon!
