Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon April 2017

End of Event Survey

 

1,  Which hour was most daunting to you? Hour 23.  I wanted to go to bed but how could I give up with just one hour to go?

 

2.  Could you list a few high interest books that you think could keep a reader engaged for next year? J.D. Robb's In Death series, Ilona Andrew's Kate Daniels series. cozy mysteries 

 

3.  Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next season?

I had lots of trouble accessing the Readathon website.  No matter how much I refreshed or deleted my internet history, I still couldn't get the page to load past Hour 12.  I had to use the search bar in order to view each hourly post.  Very strange.  

 

4.  What do you think worked really well in this year's read-a-thon?

All the various social sites.  A great way for so many people to participate.

 

5.  How many books did you read? 4

 

6.  What were the names of the books you read?

The Dispatcher by John Scalzi

Midwives by Chris Bohjalian

Last Bus to Woodstock by Colin Dexter

Interlude in Death by J.D. Robb

 

7.  Which book did you enjoy most? Midwives!  

 

8.  Which book did you enjoy least? The Dexter book.  Inspector Morse is such an unlikable character that I couldn't wait to finish.  I don't think I'll carry on with the series.   

 

9.  How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again?  What role would you be likely to take next time?  Yes!
