Post-event Survey

1. Which hour was most daunting for you? I think it was around hour 10. I was getting really groggy and feeling a bit sick to my stomach.
2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? Definitely Swine Not? by Jimmy Buffett. The chapters were pretty short and the book just zipped along.
3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? Not really. This was a lot of fun. I just wish I could have managed to stay up for the whole thing. How about holding a mini Read-a-thon sometime for twelve hours?
4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? I think the Cheerleaders did an awesome job, and Dewey did a spectacular job with updating and posting. Whenever I got a little bored with reading, I would go check out what Dewey was doing. I loved all the pictures she and others put up.
5. How many books did you read? Looks like it's going to be 3 total with possibly a short story thrown in at the very end.
6. What were the names of the books you read? Swine Not? by Jimmy Buffett, The Fairy Godmother by Mercedes Lackey and Killing Bridezilla by Laura Levine
7. Which book did you enjoy most? Killing Bridezilla
8. Which did you enjoy least? I liked all of the books I read, but if I have to choose one it would be The Fairy Godmother.
9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? I wasn't a cheerleader, but I certainly admired the work they did and looked forward to all my messages of encouragement.
10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? I will definitely participate again and I would love to be a reader again, but next time I will know not to set my goals so high! 17 books and 2,000 pages read? I must have been high!
