Mid-way Mini Challenge

Mid-Event Survey:

1. What are you reading right now? I will be starting Fireworks Over Toccoa

2. How many books have you read so far? 1- House Rules

3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon? Widow Of the South audiobook

4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day? I cleaned and did laundry yesterday and cooked so all we have to do is reheat today

5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those? 2 interruptions-my old neighbor came to town and one phone call from my mother. I enjoyed chatting with each of them and then got back to business.

6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far? That I am still goping strong!

7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? None, it seems like a well oiled machine!

8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year? As a reader, maybe do one ongoing post instead of a new post each update and challenge.

9. Are you getting tired yet? Not really. I have been taking a break for the last hour visiting blogs.

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? Be flexible with your plan. If something isn't working for you try something else.

I am off to eat, do dishes and hit the books again!


  1. I think if I do this again I will make it one ongoing post or maybe have two or three together. Happy reading

  2. I totally meant to clean and cook the day before but it never happened. I was too busy.

  3. It sounds like you're doing great with the read-a-thon so far! Keep up the good work!

  4. Sounds like things are going well! I just got off the phone with a friend but is was nice to talk. Here's a cheer to keep you going:

    You can do it-
    You're so hip.
    Give that page
    Another flip!

    Halfway through
    You're going strong.
    With awesome books
    You can't go wrong!

  5. Looks like you are making great headway
    Keep up the reading, don’t let that head sway
    Eyes on the page and coffee in hand
    You’ll be entering a new land.


  6. You're really doing great, keep up the good work!!

  7. You're doing brilliantly! Not long to go now. Keep reading! :)
