Well that's a wrap - the Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon is over until October. It's been such a fun 24 hours filled with fantastic reads, fun challenges and chatting with others who are participating. So let's do one final questionnaire - the End of Event Survey!
1. Which hour was most daunting for you?
Probably the first few of hours, as they were 10pm - 2am for me, so I wanted to get as much reading done as possible before sleeping, but I was pretty tired by that stage.
2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
Pick up books you're excited about!
One book that wasn't actually on my TBR for the readathon, but one I was considering reading, was Tomorrow When The War Began by John Marsden. It's such an action-packed book that will keep you turning the page, even when tiredness starts to set in.
Go for books that have a lot of action!
3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next season?
I really can't think of anything - the readathon is so great!
One thing that does come to mind is having the mini-challenges open for longer, possibly even the entire readathon, just to give those who do sleep or work the chance to participate in any they missed.
4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
I can't really say something that worked really well - everything was run so well and everyone involved did a fabulous job!
5. How many books did you read?
I finished a graphic novel and am about 50 pages away from finishing the second book I was reading.
6. What were the names of the books you read?
I finished Chew Vol. 1: Taster's Choice and have nearly finished A Rose For The ANZAC Boys (which I'll either finish tonight before I go to bed, or finish tomorrow after attending my local Anzac service)
7. Which book did you enjoy most?
Even though it's cheating because I haven't actually finished it, I'm going with A Rose For The ANZAC Boys. Such a perfect read for this time.
8. Which did you enjoy least?
Since I've only read two, this would be Chew. It's not a bad read though, just not as good as my other readathon book.
9. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
Very likely! I'm hoping that the October readathon is on a day (or weekend really) that I'm free because I love this readathon!
Even though I didn't read that much, everything I did read was really enjoyable, so I'm happy with the progress I made. I hope you had a fantastic readathon too - let me know how well you went!
I'll be uploading my vlog tomorrow afternoon - I don't know how good it's going to be, but it should at least be interesting to watch!
See You Soon!
