3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? nope
4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? It all worked great, the cheerleaders, the mini-challenges, the hosts,
5. How many books did you read? finished 2 and started 2
6. What were the names of the books you read? Somewhere Inside and Dewey's Nine Lives
7. Which book did you enjoy most? I enjoyed them both equally
8. Which did you enjoy least? Not applicable
9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? Not applicable
