Dewey's Readathon Wrap-Up

Here I am finally wrapping up my experience with the 24 Hour Readathon.
  1. Which hour was most daunting for you? I have to say the 17th hour was the worst. I had a headache but kept trying to keep reading and that was a huge mistake. I didn't make it to the end of that hour and went to sleep. Unfortunately, I woke this morning with a really, really bad headache. I should have stopped reading much earlier.
  2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? I can't personally, but I do know that if I ever do this readathon again, I will be reading several short books instead of the long ones I chose. I would have felt better if I could have finished something.
  3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? Not really.
  4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? Unfortunately, I didn't participate so much this year but I love all the cheerleaders and mini challenges.
  5. How many books did you read? I didn't finish any. I mostly focused on one and read about 200 pages of it.
  6. What were the names of the books you read? The Revisionists by Thomas Mullen
  7. Which book did you enjoy most? I guess that would be The Revisionists. :-)
  8. Which did you enjoy least? It turned into a big obligation this year and that made it less fun. I shouldn't have put so much pressure on myself to complete the readathon, especially when I started getting the headache.
  9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? N/A
  10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? Honestly, I don't know that I'll do the 24 hour readathon again. It's just not conducive to my life at this time. I'm much better about week-long readathons and enjoy them a lot more.

  1. I always try and choose shorter books because it gives you a sense of accomplishment when you finish one. I am sorry about your headache. I hope you are feeling better now!
