Dewey's Readathon End of Event Meme
It's over. I had a blast. I read three books and was very happy with that. I didn't make the full 24 hours but I knew that I wouldn't. I finally gave up around 2 a.m. I tried again at 5 but my eyes and brain said no. Thank you to all the hosts and committee members who made it all possible! A special thanks to all the cheerleaders! You guys are awesome! See you in the spring!
1. Which hour was most daunting for you? From midnight on was hard for me. I finally gave up around 2 am and took a nap, woke up at 5 but my eyes hurt so I went back to sleep.
2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? I enjoyed Wonderstruck by Brian Selznik. It was very different and was a quick read.
3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? The only suggestion I would have is maybe some easier mini-challenges, at least during the latter hours of the readathon. My brain needed easier challenges then.
4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? I liked the list of readers that was alphabetized.
5. How many books did you read? I read 3 books
6. What were the names of the books you read? Wonderstruck by Brian Selznik, Whistlin' Dixie in a Nor'Easter by Lisa Patton, Yankee Doodle Dixie by Lisa Patton.
7. Which book did you enjoy most? I really loved all three books!
8. Which did you enjoy least? NA
9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? NA
10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? Of course I will participate again! I wouldn't miss it!
