Well, I pretty much gave up trying to read this last hour. I am SO SLEEPY. I decided instead to jump around and encourage everyone else. And now I'm off to bed, after I finish the wrap-up survey:
1. Which hour was most daunting for you? Probably this last one - I gave up on reading (WAY too tired) and just blog-hopped instead, to encourage anyone else still up.
2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? The Twilight series, Uglies (although I never got around to Specials), graphic novels
3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? Nope, it was awesome!
4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? I liked being able to go to The Hidden Side of a Leaf and find out what was going on for a particular hour.
5. How many books did you read? I finished 3, read part of 1, listened to part of 1, read 4 short stories and 3 comic books
6. What were the names of the books you read? Pretties, Bella at Midnight, The Ghosts of Charleston (I didn't finish The Graveyard Book or Harry Potter y la camara secreta)
7. Which book did you enjoy most? I loved The Graveyard Book, but I just couldn't stay awake listening to it.
8. Which did you enjoy least? None
9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? I wasn't a cheerleader, but I tried to visit everyone at least once. I think I got pretty close! :)
10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? Very likely! I will definitely read and probably host a mini-challenge
Great job, everyone! I had so much fun. Thank you to all of my cheerleaders who kept coming by and motivating me! You guys rock! :)
