Goodbye, Readathon


  1. Which hour was most daunting for you?   The middle stretch.
  2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?  You can't go wrong with the Stephanie Plum books.
  3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?  No.
  4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?  The challenges were a lot of fun.
  5. How many books did you read?  4
  6. What were the names of the books you read?  Bless The Beasts and Children; Two For The Dough; Marbles; My Mortal Enemy.
  7. Which book did you enjoy most?  Two For The Dough.
  8. Which did you enjoy least?  My Mortal Enemy.  I found it a bitter and brittle little piece that seemed to be straining to imitate Edith Wharton's work.  In fact, Wharton could have covered this same ground much better.
  9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?  No.
  10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?  Very likely.  I might try to read the whole time.

I hope you liked Marbles :) I read a few graphic novels this time around as well. They are the best for readathons!
