I cannot believe that the Readathon is over. I feel like it was both the longest and shortest 24 hours of my life. I am even proud of myself with all the reading that I have accomplished in that short amount of time. I have already signed up for the next one which is happening in April. To recap my last 24-hour experience let me answer you their survey questions.
Which hour was most daunting for you?
Actually I had some hours that were really daunting. My time ended at 5 AM Sunday, October 18th. So anytime after Midnight was really hard because I wanted to go to bed and sleep. In fact, after 2 AM, which was Hour 22 and on, I had a hard time focusing on reading. My left eye started to hurt and all I wanted to do was to go to sleep.
Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
I did not read any good books to suggest for next readathon. Sorry.
Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
I do not have any suggestions. This was the first time I really got to participate in the readathon. The last readathon I ended up working 18 hours out of the 24. It was really nice to sit down and get a chance to participate this time. I am hoping to do more in the participation in April.
What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
I do not think I have anything to add. As I have mentioned this is the first Dewey’s Readathon I got to participate in.
How many books did you read?
I have read 10 books. I mainly stuck to short children’s books. Which was a very interesting experience. I have also started two other books.
What were the names of the books you read?
I will admit that Books one through six are all part of a series. In fact, they are all prequels to Ever After High by Shannon Hale

Which book did you enjoy most?
The one that I am still currently reading which is titled Inevitable by Angela Graham.
Which did you enjoy least?
There are a few contenders here. But the two books that are tied are Henry Burp – Mind Your Manners and Meet Digger Mole
If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
I was not a cheerleader.
How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
I believe that I have already signed up for the next readathon which is happening April 23 for me. I do not remember what roles I signed up for, but I believe that I signed up for blogging and hosting a mini challenge. I got to excited and just signed up.
I do hope that everyone had fun this weekend. I cannot wait to see you later. Happy Reading!
