Mid-Read-a-Thon Survey

1. What are you reading right now?
I'm reading The Road by Cormac McCarthy. I'm actually about to finish it. Yay!

2. How many books have you read so far?
 I've been reading The Road all day - spent about 4 hours reading so far today in between family time. I also read Why are the Ice Caps Melting? and Atlantis: The Lost City? to my son just now as he's going to bed.

3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?
 I'm going to try to finish Serena by Ron Rash finally.

4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day?
 Not really. I have been going along with my normal daily activities in between trying to read. That's why I haven't managed to read a whole lot yet.

5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
 I've just been stopping reading, unfortunately.

6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
 Nothing really, although I'm a bid disappointed I haven't been online much today to do the mini-challenges.

7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
 Nope.

8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year?
 I'd carve out time to actually dedicate to reading rather than trying to fit it in the way I'm doing now.

9. Are you getting tired yet?
 Not really. I plan to stay up late reading.

10. Do you have any tips for other Readers or Cheerleaders, something you think is working well for you that others may not have discovered?
No, but I'll be checking out everyone else's tips to help me next time!!
