Well, while I technically didn’t read for the full 24-hours, I feel this read-a-thon was my most successful. For the past few years, I’ve stop when I get tired & head to bed. With a family with active and busy weekend plans, I have to be awake and on my toes. It’s worked quite well, especially when I can get a lot of reading in!
Here are my stats from this read-a-thon:
Pages read: 1553
Total time spent reading: 13 hours, five minutes
- Which hour was most daunting for you? Since I take this all sort of casual, none of them were truly difficult.
- Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? I read a lot of thrillers. TEN by Gretchen McNeil was exciting, short, and kept my attention.
- Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? None
- What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? I think everything worked out well. While I don’t participate in the challenges, they were fun and engaging.
- How many books did you read? To completion, six. I did start one, read 100 pages, & stopped.
- What were the names of the books you read? All Seeing Eye by Rob Thurman, Dolly by Susan Hill, Carnival of Souls by Melissa Marr, All the Lovely Bad Ones by Mary Downing Hahn, Haunted by James Herbert, TEN by Gretchen McNeil
- Which book did you enjoy most? Probably Haunted. Spooky & short!
- Which did you enjoy least? Nothing against the book, it’s actually a favorite of mine, but GHOST STORY by Peter Straub. I started it, read 100 pages and realized it was too complex for a read-a-thon book.
- 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 definitely will, once again as a reader.
