1. What are you reading right now?
2. How many books have you read so far? 1.5
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon? Haven’t quite decided, but Mongolia, a card-toting messenger, and a food writer are some of the options.
4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day? No, but I am skipping out on bookclub today.
5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those? Well, the dire need for sleep, which I combated by sleeping.
6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far? Maybe I haven’t been checking in on the right blogs, but I thought there would be more writing about the actual books. I’m fine either way, that was just an expectation that I had. I’m surprised at myself at how little reading I’ve gotten done. I had pretty lofty sights on my pile of books.
7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? I think it’s going really well, I’m definitely enjoying myself, and enjoying cruising around other people’s blogs. It would be interesting to see blogs split up by genre category – people who read mostly PUF, mystery, literary fiction, non-fiction, YA, and anything or everything category.
8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year? Organize my snack options better. There’s nothing in this house I want to eat, but I don’t want to go out and get anything either. I may have to try to convince a friend to go on a pizza run.
9. Are you getting tired yet? Not after my very refreshing nap. 🙂
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 know how I like to format my book blogs, so I did some work earlier this week hunting down pictures and links and saving them in “draft” blogs so that if I got tired and spacey, I wouldn’t have to spend time doing that during the read-a-thon.
