Mini-Challenges: Wordle and Non-Fiction Read a Thon (see these on my updates page)
Which hour was most daunting to you? Hour 20. I definitely hit the wall and was struggling to stay focused - which is why I decided to hear to bed!
2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? Anything someone really wants to read - not something they have to read. I finished The Corrections which is bigger and doesn't seem really suited to the read a thon but I wanted to finish it and really enjoyed it.
3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? I think a mini-challenge that encourages comments early on really gets the community aspect of the RAT going. Maybe I will host one next time!
4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? The organization was fabulous!
5. How many books did you read? 2 (and a very little bit of a 3rd)
6. What were the names of the books you read? I Know I Am, But What Are You? by Samantha Bee and The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows
7. What book did you enjoy most? The Corrections
8. Which did you enjoy least? None. with only 2, I liked both!
9. If you were a cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s cheerleaders? N/A (they were great BTW)
10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? Definitely - and I will sign up to do some cheering along with my reading!
