24 Hour Readathon, post the fourth (and last!)

I realize that the readathon ended...oh...six or seven hours ago. I got up this morning and got the little guy and myself to church. Then it was home for lunch and a nap. A girl has got to do what a girl has got to do, right?

This year was not my most successful readathon per say, but I knew that I wasn't going to have the schedule or the energy to read as much as I might want. Plus I had fun and what more do we really want from a readathon? 

Who Will Run The Frog Hospital?
147 pages

306 pages

The Mystery at Skeleton Point
Read some to David!
38 pages (then he read the rest all by himself) 

Total page count: 491 pages

Time for the End of the Event Meme! 
  1. Which hour was most daunting for you? The last one I stayed awake for, between 1 and 2 a.m. I was determined to finish that book! 
  2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? Fever was really engaging. I think it would be a great choice. 
  3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? Not that I can think of....
  4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? I feel like the people in charge were really on top of things and everything went smoothly. You guys are awesome! 
  5. How many books did you read? 2
  6. What were the names of the books you read? Who Will Run the Frog Hospital? By Lorrie Moore and Fever by Mary Beth Keane 
  7. Which book did you enjoy most? Fever 
  8. Which did you enjoy least? I enjoyed both, but I liked Who Will Run the Frog Hospital slightly less than the other. 
  9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? I didn't cheer this year, but I hope to do it again in another readathon. 
  10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? 100%! Reader and Cheerleader, I think :)
