Post Read-a-Thon Survey

Spread the love

Questions in black. Answers in red.

1. Which hour was most daunting for you? From 6-7 was pretty tiring, spent most of my time on the computer to stay awake.
2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? The Giver by Lois Lowry was easy to stay into. Any Children’s books would be best. I noticed that those that had a nap were reading larger books.
3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? I pretty much already answered this, challenges last at least 3 hours and perhaps more prizes!
4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? The challenges worked well with the exception of the one’s that only lasted the hour and the 5 interesting points from the book’s place should have been later so we had read enough of a book to get points if the place was fictional.
5. How many books did you read? I read 6 books, but not all the way through.
6. What were the names of the books you read? I finished the last little bit of Mosaic by Amy Grant, read 3/4 of Black Creek Crossing by John Saul, almost finished First Times Compiled by Marthe Jocelyn and read completely The Giver by Lois Lowry, fake id by Hazel Edwards and The Great Number Rumble by Cora Lee and Gillian O’Reilly.
7. Which book did you enjoy most? The Giver, even though it was a re-read.
8. Which did you enjoy least? The Great Number Rumble, not as easy to understand as I’d hoped it be.
9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? I wasn’t a cheerleader but would like to host a challenge in addition to reading next year.
10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? I think I just answered that above! See you next year!
