That’s It! Readathon Wrap Up

Hey all! I survived the 24 Hour Readathon! Well, I went to bed a little after 1 am. Oh well. I need my sleep. Congrats to all the other participants! You are all amazing!

The Readathon crowd is top notch

I have the Closing Survey to fill out, though I’ve not sure how helpful I can be. I’ve been participating for a long time. Not much new for me to say.

Which hour was most daunting for you? None, really. I was restless somewhere in the middle though, so I ended up cleaning while I listened to an audiobook.
Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? Through the Woods by Emily Carroll will keep a person awake. Maybe forever? 
Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? Nope.
What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? Twitter is always where it’s at. The Random Facts were fun.
How many books did you read? Two-ish. I will never be a fast reader, friends.
What were the names of the books you read? Through the Woods, and They Found Him Dead (almost) and some short stories from The Doll Collection. 
Which book did you enjoy most? Through the Woods but They Found Him Dead is really good too.
Which did you enjoy least? I started to lose interest in The Doll Collection.
How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? You know I will try but I’ll have to see what is going on then.

Just want to take a moment to say thanks to Andi and Heather, all their co-hosts, and the Cheerleaders and challenge hosts. You guys did a great job! Have some caramel apples.

  1. I went to sleep too! 24 hours is just such a long time to stay awake, even for love of books.

    I totally get cleaning with an audiobook. I did little stretches of cleaning up or unloading the dishwasher for 5 or 10 minutes. It would have been better if I had something to listen to while doing it!

  2. You lasted way longer than I did! I liked how you highlighted passages from your books on Instagram and commented on them.
