Dewey 24 Hour Read-a-Thon

Posted April 21st, 2012 by in Bookish Events / 7 comments

If the title had you fooled, I’m taking part in Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-Thon all day today!

To get us started there is a questionaire to fill out so here we go! Everyone have a great full 24 hours of reading!

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
Arizona
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
Anna Dressed in Blood
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
I’m not a big snacker while I read.
4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
Well my name is Alexa and I’ve been here blogging for close to 2 years and even though I don’t always love it, I would be hard pressed to shut down the blog because I love reading. My favorite reads include young adult and adult romance, the more smut the better!
5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to?
Well I already think I’m off to a poor start compared with last time. I only got 4 hours of sleep so who knows what hour I’ll make it to, maybe a nap is needed.

End of the Read-a-Thon

Which hour was most daunting for you?

Probably somewhere around hour 9 or so I was dozing in and out.

Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, Night Huntress Series, Wings Series, Forbidden, Hathaway Series.

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

Nope it was great just like all of the times I’ve participated.

What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?

I couldn’t really say since I mostly just concentrated on reading instead of mini challenges and the Dewey page.

How many books did you read?

Two and I got a about 1/4 of the way through two other books.

What were the names of the books you read?

Destined, Anna Dressed in Blood, Fairy Blues, and At Grave’s End

Which book did you enjoy most?

Destined

Which did you enjoy least?

I still enjoyed Anna Dressed in Blood, just not as much as Destined which was a 5/5 read for me.

If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?

N/A

How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?

I love this read-a-thon so of course I’ll participate again. I’m always a reader, maybe next time I’ll get more involved.
