Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon

End of Event Meme:


Which hour was most daunting for you?  

      Hour 13.  After dinner I was just too tired to continue


Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?    

      For a historical fiction reader, The Midwife's Tale

      I read Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams years ago:

           it would be a great choice to keep you reading into the wee hours


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

       No, the organizers are fantastic!  Thanks much for all your hard work.  

       I had great fun and hope to participate more next year!


What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?

       What didn't!  I particularly liked the hourly challenges. 


How many books did you read?   About 1½ books total


What were the names of the books you read?

        finished: The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot

       read from start to finish:  The Midwife's Tale by Sam Thomas

       started: Ready Player One by Ernest Cline


Which book did you enjoy most?   The Midwife's Tale


Which did you enjoy least? I enjoyed them all


If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?

       I wasn't a cheerleader.


How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?  If I can get the time off from work, I'll definitely participate again-as reader and maybe cheerleader.
