Read-a-Thon midway point survey

deweys-readathonbutton12 Hours in!

Mid-Event Survey
1. What are you reading right now? The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry
2. How many books have you read so far? This is my third
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?  More reading, a walk, maybe taking 2 hours to watch the film of Beloved to rest my eyes a bit.
4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day?  Hubby and my mom are here entertaining the little man.
5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?  Lots of little interruptions. Just took 15 minutes to put Gage to bed.  It’s all good 🙂
6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?  I’m not reading very fast!
7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?  Not yet 🙂
8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year? Too early to tell.
9. Are you getting tired yet? Not quite yet, but I did have half a glass of wine with dinner 🙂
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?  Read good books!

    • Your whole year is a read-a-thon, Nise, based on how many books you read, LOL 😉

  3. Hi Stacy! Glad that you are enjoying your day. It was a family affair here as well, so I didn’t get quite as much done but it has been so much fun. Happy Reading!

  4. You are a braver woman than I to attempt the readathon! I took some time to cheer lead a little for team rogue and, oh my gosh, was that hard. Mouse was right there, wanting to sit on my lap, or, when she wasn’t, wanting something. My husband wasn’t much help. LOL

    It sounds like you are doing very well though, Stacy! Keep up the good work!

    • I’ve done cheering in th e past and it can be hard!! But it is always much appreciated 🙂 I made a choice to put down the book whenever Gage came into the room looking for me, so I’ve been realxed about that part of it, but except for the 15 minutes to fix him lunch and put him to bed he’s been easily entertained by dad and grandma 🙂
