Dewey's End of Event Wrap Up

Another excellent event has come and gone. A huge thanks to Andi and Heather for all their hard work, to the cheerleaders for giving encouragement and to everyone - cheerleader or not - who left comments on my blog. I appreciate every single one of them. 

I'm not sure how many readathons I've done. I specifically planned to split my time between reading and visiting others blog while working on my own blog. I also planned several naps throughout. 

I was more interested in the number of pages read. My goal was 700 pages and I read 808. Way more than I thought I'd be able to read. I enjoyed visiting all the blogs that I got to see too. It was fun to see what everyone else was reading and how they were updating their blog. Was a super fun event as always.

  1. Which hour was most daunting for you? Around 2 am
  2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? I didn't have any of those. Tee hee hee. One of my books was really good but really long (Patient Zero)
  3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? No, it was excellent as always!
  4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? For me personally I loved that a specifically split my time between blogs and reading and that I scheduled in naps.
  5. How many books did you read? 3 which is way more than I thought I would.
  6. What were the names of the books you read? Patient Zero, How to Win the Game of Business and Notorious Nineteen
  7. Which book did you enjoy most? Patient Zero. It was non stop action and I'm back on a zombie kick so it was a good choice. A bit long though.
  8. Which did you enjoy least? Notorious Nineteen. I was looking for a fluffy book that I could download right away to my Kindle and that was available from the library. They are so silly.
  9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? I wasn't officially signed up as a cheerleader this time but my best advice is to open a few tabs at a time and knock them out for a certain period of time and then go back to you reading.
  10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? I can't wait to participate again. Hopefully it will fall on an weekend that my boys are at their dad's so that I can fully participate throughout the whole 24 hours. I like splitting my time between reading and visiting blogs so I'll probably sign up as an official cheerleader.

  1. I tried the multiple tabs thing, but with my slower computer/internet, it didn't work for me. It'd take my computer up to 5 minutes to open a detailed blog, longer if I had to translate it. :/ It was fun but my advise to cheerleaders was to cheer while listening to an audiobook. There were SOOOOO many blogs to get through, I could only do it by multitasking.

    1. I can't multitask like that. Either I miss what is happening in the book or type the wrong thing on the blog. Good idea to listen to an audiobook while cheering though. I can't wait for the next one!

  2. I'm glad to hear that you'll be signing up to cheer next time :D With SO many participants reading they need a LOT of cheerleaders.

    Don't you just love this event? Time to put the April date on my calendar ;)

    1. I've cheered in the past but didn't want to officially sign up this time because I didn't want to have to if it turned out I didn't want to. I can't wait for the next one and will comment on as many blogs as I can again. So much fun!

Comments make my book nerd heart so very happy. Thanks for dropping by my blog and taking the time to interact with me. I love to talk books with other bookish people!
