Anyway, here is the final questionnaire --
- Which hour was most daunting for you? It's actually hardest for me to get going in the morning. I never know if I should shower, dress and eat or just start reading and then fit the other stuff in after I have some pages under my belt. (I usually choose reading first!)
- Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? Any of Alan Bradley's Flavia de Luce series would be great
- Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? I never do. I think it's such a flexible event that however it's run, it seems to work perfectly.
- What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? I loved that the main blog updated right on time each hour. It kept me on track and always coming back.
- How many books did you read? Four
- What were the names of the books you read? Which Witch? by Eva Ibbotson, Coraline by Neil Gaiman, The Asylum by John Harwood and Grimm: Volume One by various authors and illustrators
- Which book did you enjoy most? Probably Which Witch?. It kind of bugs me that it came out in 1979 so I could have read it as a kid but I didn't.
- Which did you enjoy least? Grimm. The story was okay but it was a little bit repetitive, both between the collected issues and in relation to the tv show. I did like the way the characters were written though. The dialogue was near perfect.
- If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? I still haven't officially cheered but maybe I will next year. They always make the day better!
- How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? Unless something unavoidable comes up, I will definitely participate again (and again). It's such a fun time and I end up reading far more than I ever think I can.
So my final stats were --
Time spent reading: 10 hours, 35 minutes
I call that a productive day, especially since I got a reread in there (Coraline -- much better the second time!). I look forward to the next read-a-thon.
Already reading again,
