24 Hour Read-a-Thon, the final meme

 lg new readathonbutton border

Well, another read-a-thon is in the books and this may have been my favorite one yet, even if I didn’t make it the whole 24. It seems 21 hours is my sweet spot as far these things go, sometimes I’m crawling, eyes barely open, to get there and other times, like this morning, I was surprisingly fresh and just decided to call it a day.  I credit this to spending a big chunk of the time listening to audio books and building my yearly book wall.  I was moving most of the day.

End of Event Meme:

  1. Which hour was most daunting for you?  I’ll be honest, at 4:30 am I got tired for the first time – that’s 21 hours in, I decided that I had read and done a majority of what I wanted to do so I headed to bed.
  2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? I LOVED all three books I finished this year and would recommend them all…Roll of Thunder, Hear My CryThe ReaderThe Precious OneAll different and all excellent choices.
  3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
  4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?  I thought the cheering was great this year. Team Popper was very generous with their comments 🙂
  5. How many books did you read? Finished 3 and half of a fourth, The Hard Way (Jack Reacher Series #10)
  6. What were the names of the books you read?  Se above
  7. Which book did you enjoy most?  Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry
  8. Which did you enjoy least?  I liked them all.
  9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?  I tried to cheer more this year and probably got a few hours in.  I thought the spreadsheets were easy to use and well maintained throughout the day.
  10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?  I participate every year my schedule allows me and I’ll continue to do so. My husband’s birthday is in April and Gage and I have birthdays in October so I usually miss at least one of the two due to parties or travel 🙂  Thanks for another great read-a-thon, ladies!!!

  2. I love Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry such a great book and it would be perfect for a readathon 🙂 Glad you had a great one, I usually miss one too as my son’s birthday is also October but hopefully it won’t clash as I had such a great time this one!

  3. I’m impressed that you managed 21 hours – I never could have done that. I’m glad all of your books were winners!

  4. Wow, you did great! I’m in my 8th year of blogging and still haven’t been able to participate in a readathon. Maybe next time. Although, we have an anniversary and four October birthdays in our family.
    I’m glad you liked The Precious One. Its on my list.
