Which hour was most daunting for you?
I got really comfortable in my reading position in bed during hour 4 but quickly shook my feelings of sleepiness away with some moving around. I think it might be actually this moment now - it's finally hit me that I'm tired (this has been the easiest 24 hour day I've ever experienced) but I still actually need to 'get ready' for bed after this hour is up instead of just crashing and going to sleep.
Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
I find that either a fun YA or children's book offers a fast but entertaining read and is a nice break before going back to the 'heavy' stuff.
Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
I can never really answer these 'how to improve' type questions and since this is my first readathon, I feel like I have no suggestions based off of comparisons.
What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
I like the hourly mini challenges - it's an opportunity to take a minute to see something to checkout and offers a way to have a short break from reading and a chance to socialize (the socializing part I need to work on).
How many books did you read?
6 - 3 manga, 3 novels
What were the names of the books you read?
Codename: Sailor V vols 1 & 2, Stardust, The Mark of Athena, Fairy Tail vol 3, and One Salt Sea
Which book did you enjoy most?
Probably Sailor V - I think it was a good first book when I woke up fifteen minutes before the start of the marathon and I love character.
Which did you enjoy least?
I guess Fairy Tail - it's a series that I'm not really attached to even after reading 3 volumes now but it's not like I'm bored with it and do plan to continue reading it, but I know it's a series I wouldn't actually buy
If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
Wasn't a cheerleader this time, but maybe in a few rounds I'll give it a shot
How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
I"m definitely participating in the next Read-a-thon. I'm definitely plan on being a reader again but with a goal to be more social
