I noticed Dewey’s Readathon on Twitter last week and signed up for it. Thank you hosts/organizers, Heather and Andy, and hosts Sheila, Deb, Courtney and Kate, for a 24 hour readathon event. While I didn’t read for 24 hours, and I read only one book, I loved the idea and I look forward to participating in it again. Here’s the End of the Event Meme:
1.Which hour was most daunting for you?
Any hour that interefered with reading felt daunting to me!
2.Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
What a great question! It might be good to include a scary thriller like Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris or Kiss the Girls by James Patterson to stay awake.
3.Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
It’s a fabulous idea and I can’t think of a way to improve it.
4.What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
All seemed to work well to me.
5.How many books did you read?
I read only one.
6.What were the names of the books you read?
White Fang by Jack London
7.Which book did you enjoy most?
I loved reading White Fang again and admire Jack London’s ability to write from a part wolf/part dog point of view. There’s a beauty to reading classics again when you have more life experience. The story resonates in completely new ways.
8.Which did you enjoy least?
Since I read only White Fang, I don’t have a pick for enjoyed least.
9.If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
I wasn’t a Cheerleader. Kudos to the Cheerleaders!
10.How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
I’d love to participate again. I’m most likely to participate as a reader but perhaps I could add another role next year:)
