I expect it to be a quiet day out in blogger land. The readathon just ended. I, however, just woke up! I knew it wasn’t feasible to read through the night, so I threw in the towel at midnight. Some of you may remember I had 50 pages to go in my third book but wasn’t sure if I could make it. I did!
Total time read: 9 hours, 46 minutes
Total pages read: 752
Books read: I’m Not Her, by Janet Gurtler, The Days of Abandonment, by Elena Ferrante and Hooked, by Catherine Greenman
End of Event Survey
- Which hour was most daunting for you? Hour 15 when I wasn’t sure if I could finish the last 50 pages of my book before falling asleep.
- Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? YA always does the trick for me!
- Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? I always answer no to this question. I like the readathon the way it is!
- What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? I seemed to have a steady stream of cheerleaders, so that was nice.

- What were the names of the books you read? Hooked, I’m Not Her and The Days of Abandonment

- If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? N/A
- How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? I will always be a reader. I try to participate in every readathon, but it just depends on the date!
I plan to spend the rest of today working and hanging out with my family. Not sure if there will be any reading involved–I may need a break after yesterday! Fill me in on your stats from the ‘thon!
