The Hour 12 post contained a Mid-Event survey:
1. What are you reading right now?
Committed by Elizabeth Gilbert
2. How many books have you read so far?
One completely, part of three others
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?
A stack of children’s books I intend to read when I get too tired for much of anything else
4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day?
I didn’t manage to free up my whole day! Maybe I should try special arrangements next time.
5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
Let them interrupt! I think it made the day more fun than resisting them would have been.
6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
How fun it is to play the mini-challenges and how much I would like to be visiting other blogs but, so far, I have been reading instead. Maybe later.
7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
I’m feeling too new at all this to offer suggestions.
8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year?
I am enjoying the Reader role, but I now realize I would get perhaps a bigger kick from the Cheerleader role, so I will try that next time.
9. Are you getting tired yet?
Nope. This is fun!
10. Do you have any tips for other Readers or Cheerleaders, something you think is working well for you that others may not have discovered?
Laying on the floor on my stomach to read (like I did when I was 12) is still a viable position, especially when I’ve been sitting too long.
I’m off to prep supper. Rick is actually going to do the cooking, so I’ll be back shortly.
