1. Which hour was most daunting for you?
Hour 5, sadly enough. This happens every read-a-thon . . . I'll read for a few hours in the morning, but then I'll start feeling really sleepy, decide to lay down for a "cat nap," and then wake up around Hour 8 or 9. ;-/
I really didn't hit a good momentum in my reading until Hour 10 (6 p.m. my time).
2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
I sped through Coraline, the graphic novel. This was a great book to keep me up for a couple of hours more.
3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
I wish the cheerleaders could cheer on the blogs again. I don't have a twitter account, so I wasn't able to sign up for that, but I understand if cheering on blogs got too difficult with so many participants now.
4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
I liked the mini-challenges that I participated in. They were nice, short breaks from all the reading, and fun to do.
5. How many books did you read?
I only read two, and I didn't even get to City of Bones like I'd planned
6. What were the names of the books you read?
Obsession in Death by J.D. Robb
Coraline: the graphic novel adaptation by Neil Gaiman and P. Craig Russell
7. Which book did you enjoy most?
Coraline was certainly the fastest read, and it really kept my interest, even though I was quite tired by that point. However, I think I'll say I enjoyed Obsession in Death a bit more. This is the 40th (40th!!) book in the series, and the author still manages to come up with some really great story lines. I think Obsession is one of my favorites in the series now, honestly.
8. Which did you enjoy least?
I don't have a least favorite. I only read two books and I enjoyed both of them a lot
9. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
Very likely! I'm just going to be a reader again next time. Hopefully, I can meet my 800-pages goal in October! ;-)
