Dewey's Read A Thon is over and I had fun participating. I managed to read a sum total of 2.5 books and 762 pages. However Father gave me a bonus of 20 pages since he interrupted my reading to talk about his electronic project. We decided to donate .10 cents per page read to The American Heart Association and I just going to round it off to an even $100.00
1. Which hour was most daunting for you?
I read during the hours of 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. With all of life's interruptions, I managed to read a total of 8 hours which means I read about 100 pages an hour. Not bad. The most daunting hour would have to have been the last hour.
2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
Not really, because a book that will keep me engaged, won't necessarily do it for another person. Really depends on what they like. I would suggest suspense thrillers or if you want to learn something about art, one of Iain Pears Art History Mysteries.
3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
Oh Mercy no. Nymeth, Trish, and Hannah did an absolutely fantastic job and big Thanks to all you. You guys Rock!
4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
Well, since I've never participated in the Read-a-thon before, it seemed everything worked well from the read fead to the Cheerleaders. Much thanks to all of you who were out there cheering me and everyone else on. It really helped.
5. How many books did you read? 2.5
6. What were the names of the books you read? "Mercy Street" by Mariah Stewart, "The Titian Committee" by Ian Pears and half of Patricia Briggs "Iron Kissed" The plan had been to read 6 but got derailed by life.
7. Which book did you enjoy most? I was actually enjoying "Iron Kissed" the most which is why I was really bummed couldn't finish it last night. My eyes got all blurry and my brain just wouldn't comprehend the words anymore. I should have read it first, but was, you know, saving the best for last.
8. Which did you enjoy least? I liked them all
9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
No advice - they did an excellent job. Thank you!
10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? 100% likely and I'll make sure I don't have to work that day. I will still be a reader, but I would have liked to have been a cheerleader too. I just didn't have the time to get round to other folks blogs, nor did I have the time to actually do any of the mini-challenges. Next year, my calendar will be totally free and no AT&T account reps coming round to tell us we are wired for fiber optics. A wonderful distraction, nonetheless.
