Hour 24 Survey!

1. Which hour was most daunting for you?
Right around the 2 am mark was difficult, then I caught a "second wind" of sorts.

2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
The Lady Whistledown books. Short story collections, easy reads, and I find them amusing.

3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
I will have to think on this one.

4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
The Cheerleaders ROCKED. Also, I loved the YouTube videos in the last 6 hours. I used them to dance several times.

5. How many books did you read?
Two full books from start to finish, wrapped up two books I was in the middle of, started one and put it down, and am now trying to focus on one last short story.

6. What were the names of the books you read?
Indiscreet, Beasts of New York, Evernight, The Further Observations of Lady Whistledown

7. Which book did you enjoy most?

8. Which did you enjoy least?
Good Omens, which is not on that list because I switched it out. It might not have been suited for the read-a-thon. I am hoping to come back to the book later.

9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
I wasn't a cheerleader, but I can take this moment to thank all the awesome Cheerleaders who rah-rah'd and sis-boom-bah'd for me! I said it a lot during the read-a-thon, but I'll say it again. You guys and gals are awesome.

10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
I would definitely want to be a reader again some time when my TBR pile is huge like it is now. I think if I'm in a show, I will volunteer for the Cheerleader position though. :)

I coulnd't see the videos, the connection is very slow, it would have taken hours to buffer them :(

And yes, The Cheerleaders ROCKED, I agree.

Well done

I get the same thing-a period of real difficulty followed by second wind! I'm SO glad you enjoyed the Youtube music! I was dancing too, heehee! Congrats on finishing several books! And thank you for the cheerleader compliment. :D
