I'm such a faker:
1. Which hour was most daunting for you?
20 was the hardest and when I stopped reading to cheer for 2 hours.
2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
All! Especially Frankie Landau-Banks and Fun Home
3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
I really liked the "dead hour" cheer squad--could fine tune for next year! Also, have mini-challenge hosts put ending times in the readathon hours rather than their time zones.
4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
Everything was so smooth this year!
5. How many books did you read?
I read 3 and a half and chapters of 4 others. Kind of had a tough time in the middle picking a book!
6. What were the names of the books you read?
Boy in the Striped Pajamas; The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks; Ethan Frome; Fun Home (half)
7. Which book did you enjoy most?
The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks
8. Which did you enjoy least?
None--but About a Boy, Animal Husbandry and Hunger Games were ones I abandoned temporarily
9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
Pre-write some really fun cheers. Also with so many participants try to figure out a system of how to tackle as many as possible
10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
Um, VERY LIKELY! I'll do it the same way I did this time--mostly reader with heavy emphasis on cheering.
Can't wait until April!!
