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

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.
