24 Hr Read-a-Thon: 24th Hr Meme

by Ann-Katrina

1. Which hour was most daunting for you? This one. I want to sleeeeeep.

2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? Soulless by Christopher Golden could probably work well, or for something a bit on the lighter side, I’d recommend the graphic novel series Tarot Cafe by Sang-Sun Park

3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? Still thinking about it…

4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? Um…see above. The real answer is my brain is mush and I can’t really think straight right now. o_0

5. How many books did you read? 4, but two were previous reads so I feel kinda guilty, almost like I cheated a little bit.

6. What were the names of the books you read? Tarot Cafe 1&2 by Sang-Sun Park (graphic novels), Dawn by Kevin Brooks, Soulless by Christopher Golden

7. Which book did you enjoy most? Enjoy…well, I did enjoy Soulless…but if we’re talking impact, I’d have to go with Dawn.

8. Which did you enjoy least? Not entirely a fair question since I didn’t not enjoy any of them. Maybe Soulless because of the slow parts, but again, I certainly did enjoy it.

9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? I didn’t sign up to be a cheerleader, but I did try to stop by other blogs and drop a few words of encouragement. :D

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 a given that I’m likely to participate next year. I’ll probably do a lot more planning, maybe do a couple dry runs so that I can do both cheerleading and reading.

    Thank you everyone. :D It was a ton of fun and I hope by the time the next read-a-thon rolls around, I’ll have developed a much better plan.

    I didn’t know you were doing the readathon! I was a cheerleader this year, but I didn’t get around to visiting all the blogs that signed up :( Four books is great – you did a fabulous job!!

    Thanks Belle and no worries. I know you were cheering me on in spirit, even if you didn’t know I was participating until after the fact. LOL :D

    Congratulations on making the whole 24 hours! O_O And one the books you read! I’m with you on the pre-planning thing. All I preplanned this year was an enormous stack of books to read and that’s it. Need more planning!

    You did a fabulous job working through the whole 24 hours! I knew going in I wasn’t capable so I pooped out around hour 16.

    Fantastic for you, congratulations on a successful readathon.

    [...] year’s Read-a-Thon was my first ever and I’m not completely ashamed to admit that I didn’t do so well, only a little. So, I’ve decided to get some practice in before the next one. And this Sunday [...]
