Dewey’s Read-a-Thon was a fun and lively day! Here are my answers to the End of Event Meme questions, Hour 24 – I Can See Clearly Now the End Will Come…:
- Which hour was most daunting for you? Hour 11 when I thought I should read more nonfiction. It got easier when I switched to YA.
- Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith worked really well for me at the end of the day. The journey to London felt perfect as a metaphor for the journey of Read-a-Thon.
- Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? I had a great time again this year. Maybe encouraging more people to join Twitter — I worry that the people who aren’t in the Twitter party are really missing out.
- What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? Twitter. The list of blogs for cheerleaders.
- How many books did you read? I finished two, read a little in a third.
- What were the names of the books you read? At the Dark End of the Street by Danielle L. McGuire, The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith, and a bit of Why Calories Count by Marion Nestle and Malden Nesheim.
- Which book did you enjoy most? They were all good. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight is probably the best for a read-a-thon.
- Which did you enjoy least? Not applicable 🙂
- If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? Have fun, write individualized and targeted comments, and have fun (oh, I said that).
- How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? I love being a reader and cheerleader so I’m sure that’s what I’ll do again.
Did you participate in Dewey’s Read-a-Thon? Would you like to? The next one is in October!
