Readathon: October 2016 Wrap Up

  1. Which hour was most daunting for you? Surprisingly none were super daunting – I may even have been able to stay up the entire 24 hours if I hadn’t had to go to bed because of a baby shower for a family friend in the morning.
  2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? Nimona by Noelle Stevenson is always a fantastic choice, as was Cass’ recommendation of poetry.
  3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next season? None, loved it as it was
  4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? I thought it all worked well.
  5. How many books did you read? I read 6 books and 1427 pages. All but one were re-reads.
  6. What were the names of the books you read? I read Nimona by Noelle Stevenson, How to Be Alone by Tanya Davis, for colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf by Ntozake Shange, The Mothers by Brit Bennet, Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur, and Uprooted by Naomi Novik.
  7. Which book did you enjoy most? Because all but one were rereads, I really couldn’t choose! The Mothers was fantastic, and the others were all books or collections that I read specifically because I loved them.
  8. Which did you enjoy least? See above 🙂
  9. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? I’ve got the next one already marked in my calendar! I would plan to do the same, although do a bit more blog cheering (which is my favorite place to cheer). I hope that next year the list of blog readers is provided again!

Also, I won a prize in hour 14!! Woohooo!

Did you readathon? Do you plan to join next April? (April 29th, 2017!!) If so, let me know and I’ll know whose blog to go check out during that time 🙂

    Looks like you did well! I hosted at the Instagram account for 7 hours and didn’t really read, but at least I was a part of it in my own way. 🙂
