Mid-Event Survey

1. What are you reading right now? Just finished up With Courage and Cloth: Winning the Fight for a Woman's Right to Vote
2. How many books have you read so far? that makes 3 (though I started one yesterday)
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon? The Tales of Beedle the Bard
4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day? Nope
5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those? Plenty - phone calls mostly. I just don't have very involved conversations - a lot of "uh huh" and "yeah" while still reading :)
6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far? How slowly I read
7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? Nope
8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year? Get more short books
9. Are you getting tired yet? Nope
10. Do you have any tips for other Readers or Cheerleaders, something you think is working well for you that others may not have discovered? I doubt others haven't discovered this, but audio books are great for doing house and yard work :)

And for a short update:
Number of books finished: 3 (finished The Hunt for Dark Infinity and With Courage and Cloth)
Total number of pages read: 583
Total number of hours read: 11h 20m

On to something new!


  1. I really enjoy reading the surveys. You're doing great today, I can't wait to be a reader in October!! :-)

    Good luck on the rest of your reading!

  2. Yes, audio books really do work well when there are other things calling your name!

    Good luck on the second half!

  3. You're one of the few that isn't really, really tired at this point! Beetle the Bard seems like it would be a perfect read for this. :)

    Happy reading (and unplug your phone)!

  4. With Courage and Cloth sounds like a great choice. I'll have to put it in my tbr pile!


Love it when you comment!
