End Of The Event Meme

  1. Which hour was most daunting for you? Hour 8. I was super-tired and totally ready to go to bed.
  2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
    Tales Of Beedle The Bard by J.K. Rowling is a great read-a-thon book! It’s thin and a light read, perfect for those late hours
  3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
    It was great the way it was, thank you 🙂
  4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
    As I said, everything was great, I had a lot of fun!
  5. How many books did you read?
    Three. Not a lot, I know! There is room for improvement for the next read-a-thon!
  6. What were the names of the books you read?
    The Boy And His Horse by C.S. Lewis, Tales Of Beedle The Bard by J.K. Rowling, Around The World In 80 Days by Jules Verne
  7. Which book did you enjoy most?
    I think I enjoyed The Boy And His Horse most. It was a great Narnia novel, to be the best one yet!
  8. Which did you enjoy least?
    I think it was Around The World In 80 Days by Jules Verne. I enjoyed all three books, but this one was a little dry at times.
  9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
    I wasn’t a cheerleader 🙂
  10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? If I have the time, I will definitly participate again! I think I will be a reader again, I’m not that good at cheering 😉

The read-a-thon was a great experience, although I didn’t get as much reading done as I had hoped. Maybe I will try to go for the full 24 hours next time. I also missed out on all those great mini-challenges and all those fabulous blog posts from other participants! I focussed more on reading so there was not enough time to visit all the blogs I had planned to visit!

Will you participate again? How was your read-a-thon?
