Hour 11 and 12: Nothing and Mid-Event Survey
Books read 1:
Current Progress: p.106 of Persepolis
Back to reading again as I basically did not do anything for two hours but talk to all the people who came online and watched a tv programme. I became really lethargic. I am making some tea now, chai. I should be drinking more caffeine, but I rather not. I want to see how many more hours I can stay up before sleeping.
Dewey has a mid-event survey. Good, my minor updates are really silly.
1. What are you reading right now? The Complete Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi
2. How many books have you read so far? Including this one, 2.
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon? My Sister Life and other poems by Boris Pasternak. Also Promothea.
4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day? No, I’m introverted enough to be at home most Saturdays. I did refuse invites to go out today.
5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those? Two phone calls. I take it in stride. I give them time. It’s cool.
6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far? It’s going by fast. When you mark the hour and read for hours, it happens.
7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? No, I like it the way it is. I just hope it’s not too stressful for any of the organisers.
8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year? More light reading. That’s pretty much it.
9. Are you getting tired yet? Yes a bit though I usually don’t sleep for another hour, and I’m kind of sore.
10. Do you have any tips for other Readers or Cheerleaders, something you think is working well for you that others may not have discovered? Know when you need to take a break! Take it in stride.
