Golly pete y’all. I can’t believe it’s come and gone again. This year was incredible. I got to kick of the read-a-thon with four hours of hosting, which was absolutely amazing, then, despite having to leave for my daughter’s birthday part, I still managed to read 4 fantastic books. All in all, I call that a success. Then, to top it off, I feel like we managed to do what we set out to do; to honor Dewey’s memory and create another memorable event for everyone. At least, I hope we did.I hope you had as much fun as I did!!
So, now for the final meme!
Which hour was most daunting for you?
11:00 PM EST. I gave up. I pretty much woke up at 3:00, excitement and nerves I think, and I was just beat.
Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
All the books I read this year were all very engaging. Graphic novels always work great, and short ones like The Prince of Mist, are great too.
Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
I have my own ideas on THAT. lol
What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
I’ll reserve judgement on that as well.
How many books did you read?
What were the names of the books you read?
The Good Neighbors Kin, Kith, and Kind by Holly Black and Ted Naifeh
The Prince of Mist by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Which book did you enjoy most?
All were great, but The Prince of Mist was something very special.
Which did you enjoy least?
None of them
If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
I didn’t get to cheer. I signed up before Andi and I became co-hosts anyway, and I just didn’t have time. If I hoped to read, that is. And I hoped to read.
How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
I’ll be here. Hosting again in April! Can’t wait!
