Ending the Read-a-Thon Madness (for now)!

Guys, I made it to about the middle of hour 19 and then I crashed.  Honestly, I'm pretty sure I'll never go the full 24 hours.  I think I'm getting too old to recover from an all-nighter.  Anywho, here are my final stats:

Title of book(s) currently reading: A Train to Potevka by Mike Ramsdell
Number of books completed since you started: 2 (
Bless This Mouse by Lois Lowry and Making Toast by Roger Rosenblatt)
Pages read since last update: 45 (it was a slow/sleepy 1.5 hours)
Running total of pages read since you started: 533
Amount of time spent reading since last update: 1.5 hrs

Running total of time spent reading since you started: 10 hrs (yeah!  I met my goal!)
Mini-challenges completed: 9 (see them here)

And here we have the end of event survey:

1. Which hour was most daunting for you?

Probably the middle hours where I got totally distracted and had stuff to do.

2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?

A Train to Potevka was pretty exciting, but not throughout
I'm thinking a nice dystopian would probably grab and hold your attention

3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?

I think it runs pretty well, actually 

4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?

Having the mini-challenges all run for 3 hours was helpful

5. How many books did you read? I finished 2

6. What were the names of the books you read?
Bless This Mouse by Lois Lowry and Making Toast by Roger Rosenblatt (I also got about halfway through A Train to Potevka by Mike Ramsdell)

7. Which book did you enjoy most? Bless This Mouse was pretty sweet and fun, though A Train to Potevka is exciting and interesting

8. Which did you enjoy least? That would leave
Making Toast
9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? N/A - though I love them!

10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? 

It's pretty likely I'll be a reader again next time - not sure where I'll be in October though.  Also, I'm definitely wanting to host the Book Puzzle challenge again - it reminds me how terrible I am at guessing the puzzles!

Thanks again to all who made the Read-a-Thon happen - hosts and admin and whatever else.  And to everyone who cheered me on!
