End of Readathon Meme

1. Which hour was most daunting for you? I went to bed around Hour 19 I think.
2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? Life As We Knew It is one I always recommend.
3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? Not really.
4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? I did like the cheerleading!

The Runaway Dragon by Kate Coombs. 2009. FSG. 304 pages.
The Thirteenth Princess. Diane Zahler. 2010. HarperCollins. 245 pages.

I started two others, but did not finish them.

9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? Wasn't a cheerleader

Great job on the read-a-thon! It looks like you were very successful. I'm going to take your suggestion and add Life As We Knew it to my list for the October read-a-thon.

You can see my Read-A-Thon wrap-up meme here.

Cheers ;-)
