Sunday Salon: Readathon Hour 24
Books Read: 4
Current Progress: p.3 of The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid: a Memoir by Bill Bryson
24 Hour Readathon. I was active in reading in 19 hours out of 24. Next time, I’d set make goal for 5 books. I am going to read a bit of Thunderbolt Kid, but I won’t read for a few more hours at least. Even though it was four books, a couple of those books were intense. I am work on three hours of sleep as well. I had a good time. Better than the last, and I hope to do it again soon.
Dewey‘s final event survey:
1. Which hour was most daunting for you? Hour 15/16 when I finished Persepolis and knew it was time for bed.
2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? Persepolis. Most good graphic novels fit into this category. Chicklit if I had it.
3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? Hmm, I hope it expands even more. More the merrier.
4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? It was very organised and hats off to Dewey and the helpers for that. I also think this time of year is conducive to it.
5. How many books did you read? Four and I started a fifth.
6. What were the names of the books you read? Beloved, The Complete Persepolis, My Sister Life, and Prometha Book 1
7. Which book did you enjoy most? Probably Persepolis and My Sister Life.
8. Which did you enjoy least? I liked Beloved a lot, and that way, I enjoyed it, but it was very sad.
9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? N/A
10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? Likely. Doing the reader thing again if the schedule is right. If not, cheerleading is good.
