Read-a-thon: End of Event Meme

1. Which hour was most daunting for you?I had to go to sleep at 8:00 because I’ve been sick. So, I guess that hour 13 was the most daunting. 🙂 Next year I hope to do the whole thing.

2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?I loved The Giver by Lois Lowry. I was also glad I had picked up some graphic novels.

3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? I loved it! I just wish I could have been awake for more it.

4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?This was my first read-a-thon so I have nothing to compare it to, but I loved the cheerleaders and all the activities each hour.
5. How many books did you read? 3 and I started a 4th
6. What were the names of the books you read?

  • American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang
  • The Giver, by Lois Lowry
  • The Plain Janes, by Cecil Castellucci and Jim Rugg
  • started: The Strain by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hoga

7. Which book did you enjoy most? They were all so different from each other! I need to think about this one. I did love The Giver.
8. Which did you enjoy least? I would have to say American Born Chinese because it made me feel uncomfortable, but I believe it was supposed to do that. It was a very interesting and thought provoking book.
9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? I wasn’t a cheerleader… but I appreciate all they do!
10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? I will definitely participate next time! I would love to volunteer to be a cheerleader and also be a reader.

  4. You did an amazing job, especially not to be feeling well. April will be here sooner than you realize.
