Dewey's #Readathon Wrap-up




1)  Which hour was most daunting for you?  Hour 5.  I started later than I planned and it created a flurry.  It was like catch-up, catch-up, catch-up, read, read, read, comment, comment, comment... But when I finally settled in, I was fine.

2)  Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? As much as I try to resist YA, it is so much easier to read during the readathon.  The writing is simpler, sentences shorter, and words bigger.

3)  Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?  I love the read-a-thon as it is.  I like that each time I participate, I can change it and adapt it to fit what I need at that moment.  There are so many options.


4)  What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?  I thought the prize situation was better and I thought the mini-challenges went very smooth.

5)  How many books did you read? 2.1 :)

6)  What were the names of the books you read?  Conspiracy in Death by J.D. Robb and Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys

7)  Which book did you enjoy most? Out of the Easy but they were both great.

8)  Which did you enjoy least?  By default, Conspiracy in Death

9)  If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? N/A

10)  likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?  Next time I would like to do a mini-challenge and be a reader again.  I'd also like to donate prizes next time.

    1. I get distracted easily so I have to do something else. I'll get the same amount read regardless.

    1. It feels like I'll never be able to do the whole day again, but I take what I can.

  6. I don't read much YA either, but it did work well for me this RAT. Like you, I got 2 books read (plus a bit of a few others), so I was happy with that. Congrats on your successful Read-a-Thon!
