Dewy's 24 Hour Readathon October 2016 Finish Line

Another Dewey's Readathon is in the books. This is my 8th readathon and I still find them exciting. 

11:05 to 11:36 pg 159 to pg 183
Pages Read:24
Time Read:31 minutes
Total Pages Read: 183
Total Time Read: 5 hours 40 minutes

  1. Which hour was most daunting for you? I ened up calling it quites at hour 17 and going to bed 
  2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? Clockwork Prince was the only book I read and I would not consider it high interest. It is a book that takes some thinking and not a fast read, but what I wanted to read for the readathon. 
  3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next season? I know you guys have worked hard on cheerleading and you just don't get the results you want, but I would love to see official cheerleaders come back and not just to twitter, but for the blogs too. 
  4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? the hourly updates and the mini challenges were great. 
  5. How many books did you read? 0
  6. What were the names of the books you read? -
  7. Which book did you enjoy most? -
  8. Which did you enjoy least? -
  9. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? I will be back in April to participate as a reader again. 
I like to include my stats over all the readathons in the finish line. I'm always trying to figure out a way to beat myself. I participated in my first dewey's readathon as a senior in high school and now I'm a senior in college. I don't like to compare myself to other readers, but I do like to compare my stats over each readatho and beat my own statistics. Although I don't think it is ever going to be possible to beat April 2014
