As Dewey's 24 Hour Read-A-Thon draws to a close, I must say it was one of my least successful years but I am okay with that. And that's because one of my long time friends dropped by for a visit out-of-the-blue and it was a visit I really needed. I was very refreshed and happy after she left and she even took my 6-year-old to her house for a little while. I love her dearly and even though we don't stay in constant touch (and we live around the corner from each other) we stay close and I know I can count on her and she can count on me. So yesterday was special for that almost 3 hour visit.
Other than that there were kids to attend to and supper to help fix. I did settle the husband and boys down with their own movie so I could finish the evening but I started not feeling well and called it a night around midnight. But when I read I had a blast!
- Which hour was most daunting for you? Right around midnight, I could not keep my eyes open.
- Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? If you like light YA dystopian that's more like reality tv (think The Bachelor) then The Selection by Kiera Cass is a great read, it moves quick and sucks you right in. I also chose a light romance and enjoyed that.
- Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? I never do, I think everyone does a wonderful job. I have to confess to not paying as much attention to what was going on and focusing on reading. I'll get back to paying real attention to the read-a-thon in the fall.
- What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? The posts were on time and the cheerleaders were great from what I could tell.
- How many books did you read? I finished 2 and started a third.
- What were the names of the books you read? The Night She Got Lucky by Susan Donovan and The Selection by Kiera Cass. I also started Touch by Jus Accardo
- Which book did you enjoy most? The Selection by Kiera Cass (comes out Tuesday)
- Which did you enjoy least? None were bad or ill-suited for the read-a-thon.
- If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? N/A
- How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? I'll be back in the fall and I'll be a reader again and maybe host a mini-challenge, I keep wanting to take that plunge.
