Mid-Event Survey (read-a-thon)


Wow! The mid-event survey. Here we go...

  1. What are you reading right now? I just finished Ex-mas by Kate Brian and am about to begin Finding Nouf by Zoe Ferraris
  2. How many books have you read so far? I finished one and read one whole book
  3. What book are you most looking forward to in the second half? Finding Nouf by Zoe Ferraris since I've had it on my TBR list for a long time
  4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day? Unfortunately, I didn't free up my whole day. But, my daughter went to her dad's at 1:00 so that means I've had some time to myself to devote to the read-a-thon (now I just have to contend with the dog).
  5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those? Yes, there are somehow always interruptions. I just take care of them (walking the dog, phone calls, etc) then get back to reading
  6. What surprises you most about the read-a-thon so far? I enjoyed Ex-mas more than I expected
  7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the read-a-thon? Nope.
  8. What would you do differently, as a reader, if you were to do this again? Oh, I will do this again, for sure. I always think I will get more hours of reading in, but I never do. So, I'll be happy with whatever I get
  9. Are you getting tired yet? Nope
  10. Do you have any tips for other Readers, somethint you think is working well that others may not have discovered? Nope. The only thing I do that I am not sure others do is review each book as I finish it. It gives me a little time in between books and then I am not faced with a stack of reviews to do after the read-a-thon.

Becky--Thank you for the encouragement. I ended up not doing nearly as much reading as I had hoped
