Dewey's End of Event Meme
Yay! My 24 hours are done. Over all I think I did pretty well. I enjoyed everything I read except Ganymede. Since its part of a series I like I felt obligated to finish it so it took forever to do so. Had I enjoyed it I might have been able to read more books. I was still able to read 12 books for a total of 1,633 pages.
End of Event Meme
Which hour was most daunting for you?
I actually did pretty well. I didn't struggle at all. However I started at midnight on Friday and ended midnight on Saturday because I didn't want to waste Sunday sleeping since I have things to do. It still was 24 hours though.
Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
Harry Potter Series. Graphic novels are a good break from reading bigger books.
Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
I pretty much stood away from social media as I wanted to concentrate on reading. I didn't even participate in any of the challenges except for the opening, middle and ending memes.
How many books did you read?
What were the names of the books you read?
The Pocket Guide to Goblins by Jessica Feinberg (75), Earth Dragons & Other Rare Forest Creatures by Jessica Feinberg (99), Metal Dragons & Other Rare Clockwork Creatures by Jessica Feinberg (149), The Imp Lands #2 by Justin Hillgrove (23), Nenetl of the Forgotten Spirits 1-3 by Vera Greentea & Laura Muller (69), Westward Volume 1-4 by Ken Krekeler (361), Wytches Volume 1 by Snyder (144), The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor (364), Ganymede by Cherie Priest (349)
For a total of 1633 pages.
Which book did you enjoy most?
The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor
Which did you enjoy least?
Ganymede by Cherie Priest - I was quite disappointed with this one. I couldn't connect with the story and characters. It was torture to finish it. I enjoyed the first two in the series a lot. Hopefully the fourth one is better.
If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
Very likely and as a reader.
