End of Event Survey

Which hour was most daunting for you? Probably 11pm (central). I get up at 4:30, so I finally collapsed for a few hours sleep when I could no longer concentrate on words.

Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? These might be pretty hard reads, but I enjoyed Becoming Nicole: The Transformation of an American Family and Night. Both were short enough to finish.

Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next season? No, everything seems pretty fun. Maybe get the start time out to folks sooner. The FAQ mentioned years ago, and I didn't find it until just a few days before (via seeking out the FB event).

What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? I enjoyed a lot of the mini-challenges, and voting on favorite genres was fun. I was sorry to have missed most of those!

How many books did you read? Four, working on my fifth. They were pretty short though, chosen that way purposefully.

What were the names of the books you read?
Punch Lines: Humerus Art by George Wachob
Becoming Nicole: The Transformation of an American Family by Amy Ellis Nutt
Ariel, by Sylvia Plath
Night, by Elie Wiesel

Which book did you enjoy most? Ariel

Which did you enjoy least? Punch Lines

How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? For sure! I'm pretty happy as a reader for right now. I'd like to maybe host mini-challenges in the future, but read-a-thons are a bit difficult for me yet with a wee-ish one.
