Dewey’s Read-a-Thon October 2013: End of read-a-Thon Post

So, as we say goodbye to another read-a- thon, which I thoroughly enjoyed, I’ll answer these questions I found on twitter today :
I feel exhausted but exhilarated and am so proud and pleased I managed to read and blog for 14 hours !

Here goes…..

Which hour was most daunting for you?
It would have to be hour 13 when I was tired , and just had to give into sleep no matter how much I wanted to keep reading !

Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
One Day by David Nicholls
The Horse Whisperer by Nicholas Evans
War Horse by Michael Morpurgo
The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe by CS Lewis
The Smoke Jumper by Nicholas Evans

Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
I’d definitely get ready earlier and use audiobooks as well as ebooks .

What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
The fact I prepared a few days before and had a timetable

How many books did you read?
1

What were the names of the books you read?
One Day by David Nicholls

Which book did you enjoy most?
One day by David Nicholls

Which did you enjoy least?

Extremely likely. I’ll de finitely participate . Maybe a reader or Mini Challenge leader

  1. Congrats on your successful Readathon! 14 hours of reading is outstanding! And ONE DAY was an excellent choice. I read it last year for this same event and it kept me engaged the whole time.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, too!

  2. Well done on getting through it 🙂 It doesn’t make me want to read it (you know me) but it does make me want to see the film! Well done again.

  3. 14 hours reading is awesome! Sleep monster took out a lot of people around midway but lots joined back up for the end 🙂 hope to see you take part next year. Survey will be up on Dewey’s, make sure to fill it out! #readathon #TeamTiger
