24-Hour Readathon Hou Mid-Event Survey

Spread the love

Here’s the mid-event survey:

1. What are you reading right now?
In Ecstasy by Kate MacCaffrey – YA fiction about two girls who experiment with ectasy
2. How many books have you read so far?
Well I finished two that had been started during clean your clutter readathon but before 24-hour readathon and I’m part way through above book.
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?
I’m looking forward to Nasty, Brutish and Short by Pat Senson
4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day?
Yes although they weren’t as good as I’d hoped. I sent my kids away to grandma’s for the night so I’ll be able to sleep in tomorrow too. However I had a birthday party today so that took away a lot of time plus I have infected wisdom teeth so I’m in pain, discomfort and I can only open my jaw 1 inch.
5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
Yes. Birthday party, kids before they were sent away, husband having a temper tantrum…
6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
Honestly? That I”m not enjoying it as much as I normally do. 
7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
Yes, shorter mini-challenges. If I spend 30 minutes on each challenge I get nothing read.
8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year?
Still working on that. Trying to figure out why I’m not as happy this year so I can change things.
9. Are you getting tired yet?
Nope, but it’s only 7pm here.
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.
