Read-a-thon Midway Survey

Mid-Event Survey:
1. What are you reading right now? The Lucky One

2. How many books have you read so far? 1 and 1/2

3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon? Welcome To The World Baby Girl!

4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day? Just bought snacks and let the kids know I would be busy.

5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those? Oh boy have I had interruptions! Dog knocked my tea off the table, neighbor girl came over twice to get her ball and had to let me know, a lot of little stuff. Just dealt with it quickly and went back to my book.

6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far? That I made it this far and feel pretty good

7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? Quicker and easier mini-challenges

8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year? As a reader I would have a schedule and stick to it. As a first timer I am kind of all over the place. Tried to have a plan but I got sidetracked. I am having a hard time coming up with time to blog, visit other blogs, do mini-challenges

9. Are you getting tired yet? Just a bit

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? Getting up and moving helps alot and changing the location you are reading in helps too.


  1. It's true, blogging, visiting, and challenges can eat up quite a bit of reading time, but they can be great little breaks!

    Can you believe we're past the half way point? It's gone by so fast! I hope you're still having fun - enjoy your remaining books :)

  2. You are doing great! Have fun, and enjoy your books....


  3. Way to hang in there! Over halfway through - keep it up!
