Read-A-Thon Wrap Up

1. Which hour was most daunting for you?
Around hour 12 I had to take a break, eat, talk to people, regroup. Then I was fine for another several hours 2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
This is had because high interest is so much based on taste. It'd probably stay away from the classics and things your currently being required to read, but I wouldn't have a blanket suggestion of what everyone should read.3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
I really liked the way it went this year, it was smooth and tons of people participated. 4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
I think the hourly updates/events were really helpful, it gave everyone a mini escape  5. How many books did you read?
3 Books,  1 Screenplay6. What were the names of the books you read?
Touching From a Distance- Curtis
How Did You Get This Number - Crosley
Moonlight in Odessa - Charles
Little Miss Sunshine
7. Which book did you enjoy most?
I was surprised by how much I enjoyed Touching From a Distance. I'm not a Joy Division fan and I had to read it for class.8. Which did you enjoy least?
How Did you Get This Number - I've read Crosley's other book and loved it, this just wasn't the same. The short stories were to long and the content wasn't as engaging. 9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? I wasn't thing year. 
10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? 
I'd love to participate again so long as I have the time!

Sorry this post is so late, I obviously fell asleep a little early and woke up a few minutes ago.

The idea of this readathon is incredible. I don't think I can do 24 hours, but I maybe should actually try next year. Congratulations!
