Read-a-thon Hour Mid-Event Survey

Spread the love

1. What are you reading right now?
A Firm Place to Stand by Marja Bergen
2. How many books have you read so far?
Well technically I’ve finished 3 but the first one I was close to done when the readathon started.
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?
Working Like a Dog by Gena K. Gorrell seems interesting!
4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day?
Who said I freed up my whole day? LOL. No I have my 18 month old and almost 3 year old home with me, my hubby and earlier, my brother who’s visiting for the weekend. That’s why I haven’t even gotten in 5 hours of actual reading yet. Hopefully I’ll catch up during the night.
5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
See above
6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
How many people signed up! Of course not everyone is actually participating, I see lots who haven’t posted in days but still, lots more than the first readathon. That’s great!
7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
You bet. Post either the time it starts in all timezones or at least the ones in the US and Canada. Especially with Daylight Savings, both times I’ve participated in the readathon I’ve started an hour early.
8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year?
I said this the first time but I need an EMPTY house, audiobooks, and food prepared.
9. Are you getting tired yet?
Not really. I’m a little tired from not sleeping enough but I’m not getting bored of reading or falling asleep. It’s only 8pm here though.
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?
Not really. :)
