Readathon: End of Event Meme:

1. Which hour was most daunting for you?
   Unfortunately I woke up 3 hours (5am) before the event started (8am). That spelled disaster. I finished my third book at 10:30pm and couldn't concentrate I wandered around the house, visited a couple of readers blogs, looked at some of the mini-challenges, read a few tweets, checked my email, and went to bed. I was too tired to even tweet that I was stopping.

2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
 Two Wiley Cash books: This Dark Road to Mercy which I read for the April Readathon and A Land More Kind Than Home which I read this time. Both have interesting characters, tense situations, and good pacing.

3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
 Maybe some standards for the mini challenges? When entry links go in a Rafflecopter (or some other form where only the sponsor can see the URL) readers don't have access to the entrants' blogs, tweets, etc. to see the fun pictures & comments.  I know the ones that use comments must be hard to manage. The Linky form seems like a good option.

4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
  Hard for me to comment since I was lagging behind from the beginning. This time the event didn't work as well for me as the April one, but I still had a great time.

5. How many books did you read?

6. What were the names of the books you read?
 A Land More Kind Than Home by Wiley Cash
 Who Is Martha? by Marjana Gaponenko
 Dept. of Speculation by Jenny Offill

7. Which book did you enjoy most?
 No favorite-these are all great books.  

8. Which did you enjoy least?
 I loved them all.

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

10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
 I am very likely to sign up as a reader. I might put together some sort of prize package.
