In terms of reading this read-a-thon was a fail (not an epic fail) but a fail. I did manage to complete 2 books, both of which I really wanted to finish, so I feel pleased about that, even though my goal was 5. But I’ll have some time to read later so that makes up for it.
In terms of fun this read-a-thon was flippin awesome!! Kate, Steph and I had sooooo much fun. There was obviously a lot of talking involved but that’s ok because we had a good time. We also had way to much food, but that’s better than having not enough right? We crashed around 6am so I feel pretty good that we made it 22 hours, even if it wasn’t all reading.
My Final Stats
Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver (375 pages)
The DUFF by Kody Keplinger (277 pages)
World by Jon Stewart (10 pages)
The History of the World by Wylie Overstreet (50 pages)
Time wasted talking to Kate and Steph
The perfect amount :)
Here is the Final Meme:
Which hour was most daunting for you?
Hour 21. I wanted to sleep soooo bad.
Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
YA books are a good choice because they are usually a bit shorter and a quicker read so it’s easier to feel accomplished. The DUFF was really at keeping my interest in the later hours.
What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? I really liked the challenges. I thought most of them were pretty interesting.
How many books did you read?
What were the names of the books you read?
Pandemonium and The DUFF
Which book did you enjoy most?
It’s a tough call but I would have to say The DUFF
Which did you enjoy least?
If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? I was not a cheerleader, but I might be next time. Though I would encourage everyone to take off their word verification.
How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? I would definitely participate in the read-a-thon again. As a reader and hosting another mini challenge.
How did your read-a-thon go?
