Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon April 2017: Finish Line

  1. Which hour was most daunting for you? I was really tired last night and went to bed around 10 pm, which is hour 15.
  2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? Just One Day. 
  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? 1
  6. What were the names of the books you read? Two by Two by Nicholas Sparks
  7. Which book did you enjoy most? Just One Day by Gayle Forman and Two by Two by Nicholas Sparks. 
  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 October to participate as a reader again. 

8:13 to 9:19 pg 133-171
9:37-9:48 pg 171-181

I fell asleep beween these two reading sessions and then I ended up going to bed for the rest of the readathon.

This readathon was by far not my best. I was a lot more tired than usual. I still made a lot of progress and I'm proud of that progress. This is my 9th readathon. I participated in my first readathon in April of my Senior year of high school and I am now almost a college graduate. I love this readathon and I'm going to continue to participate no matter how busy I get. It is the perfect time to set aside time to read.

  1. I agree about the cheerleading for blogs coming back, although I know how hard the hosts have worked to try to gather together some cheerleaders! I'm glad you liked both of the books that you ended up reading!
