This past Saturday I participated in Dewey’s 24 hour readathon. I had an absolute blast and I am already looking forward to the next one in April 2016. I did a little bit of everything this time. I cheered, I hosted a mini challenge, and I read. I also socialized a lot.
Below are my answers to the closing survey.
Which hour was most daunting for you?
Hour 19 when I threw in the towel and went to sleep for a bit.
Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
You can’t go wrong with Harry Potter but in general, some easy books that aren’t too long are great to have in your stack.
Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
I honestly don’t. I think it’s so well organized and executed already but I am excited to support and participate in any changes.
What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
It was really easy to cheer for blogs. I got through the list quite fast and I even had time to cheer on the rogue.
How many books did you read?
I finished one book and started a second book but I didn’t start and finish a book during the readathon.
What were the names of the books you read?
The Picture of Dorian Gray and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Which book did you enjoy most?
I enjoyed Dorian Gray I suppose haha
Which did you enjoy least?
Also Dorian Gray 😉
If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
I found it helpful to divide my day into activities. I cheered first thing, then I moved on to my mini challenge with some cheering peppered in and finally, I got some reading done at night. I think just taking it easy and having fun is important. Cheering shouldn’t be stressful.
How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
I am definitely participating again! I will cheer, host a mini challenge and read.
