Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-Thon: Wrap Up
Sunday April 22, 2012 at 8:02 am |


1.  Which hour was most daunting for you?

I think hours twenty-two through twenty-four were the most daunting because my eye were getting tired and I wanted to hit the bed.

2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?

Dark Lover by J.R. Ward, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling, Secrets of a Summer Night by Lisa Kleypas, Knight in Shining Armour by Jude Deveraux, and Only Hers by Francis Ray.

3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?

This would require some thought of which I’m foggy right now.  I have no qualms with the read-a-thon so no, no suggestions.  I had a blast.

4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?

I think the mini-challenged staying up for multiple hours worked as I didn’t have to get to them right away if I wanted to concentrate on reading.

5. How many books did you read?

Three books and 25 pages of another book.

6. What were the names of the books you read?

The Woman in Black by Susan Hill, Knocked Out by My Nunga-Nungas by Louise Rennison, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling, and Dixie Riggs by Sarah Gilbert.

7.Which book did you enjoy most?

Harry Potter and Knocked Out by My Nunga-Nungas.

8.Which did you enjoy least?

The Woman in Black

9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s 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 would definitely be a reader and donate.  I could potentially be a mini-challenge host in the future.

      I’m so late! Yes you can post the wrap up there. I ws wondering what happened to you when you stopped poting. I figured the sleep bug must have got you.

  2. Wow, you did awesome Jade! I might have to plan for next years read-a-thon – it always seems like so much fun.

  3. Great job Jade! Did you get to donate this time around? I was confused about what happened with the prizes since I knew some people had offered to donate.

    I loved dong the mini-challenge and I’ll do it again next year. It was super easy and so much fun to read the responses.

  4. I love Dewey’s read-a-thon! If I hadn’t had to go out of town for a long weekend to celebrate my sister’s b-day, I totally would have participated.

    Looks like you did a fantastic job. Glad you had fun.
