Read-a-Thon (Hour 24+) (original post 10/25/09)


Well, I've had a good night's sleep and feel quite rested. As soon as I woke up I read and finished the book I was part way through last night. I'll do a review later this morning. Here's the Hour 23 meme post...

1. Which hour was most daunting for you?
Hour 18 when I got a headache from so much reading and screen time

2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
Guardian (Julius Lester) and Purple Heart (Patricia McCormick). They are both well-written, short, and very good

3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
Nope

4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
It was so well organized! I liked it all: mini-challenges, hourly postings, cheerleading, etc.

5. How many books did you read?
4 and a half by the time I went to bed

6. What were the names of the books you read?
Guardian (Julius Lester)
One Good Punch (Rich Wallace)
Purple Heart (Patricia McCormick
Angus, thongs and full-frontal snogging (Louise Rennison)
Shattered (Paul Langan)

7. Which book did you enjoy most?
Guardian--very intense and REALLY good

8. Which did you enjoy least?
Angus...

9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
I wasn't an official cheerleader, but really enjoyed visiting the blogs of other participants to see what they were reading and to cheer them on

10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
I am definitely going to participate next time. I really enjoyed reading. Maybe I'll sign up to be a cheerleader for a shift.
