Dewey Read-A-Thon Summary

27 Apr


So when I passed out at 11pm last night, I figured I would do my norm and wake up in a few hours and read…normally, I’m a fairly disjointed sleeper…but would you know…I didn’t move all night…when I finally cracked the eyelids (no thanks in part to my German Shepherd bouncing on the bed because he had to go out)…it wasn’t 4am, or 5am, but 6:30…that is by far the longest i’ve slept in, I don’t know how long. But I decided to try and maybe squeeze in a little bit more reading before the 8am cut-off…tried being the operative word…within about 20 minutes the head was nodding again and I decided that obviously, I still hadn’t gotten enough sleep, rolled over and dozed off…oh wells!

Now to the End of Event Meme:

Which hour was most daunting for you?
I think i made it to about hour 15 before I started dozing off, so somewhere in there 😉
Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
Unfortunately, I didn’t really have any blow my mind kind of reads this time – mostly because I was trying to finish up some books that had been languishing on the currently reading pile…and they were languishing because for some reason or another, they were just not catching my attention
Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
Nope – not off the top of my head
What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
I liked what I saw of the mini-challenges although I didn’t actually particiate and that I did have a couple of cheerleader’s check in, even though I signed up right before it started
How many books did you read?
I finished 4 books, 3 of which were in progress when I started
What were the names of the books you read?
Helsinki Blood – James Thompson – mystery set in Finland
Moonlight On My Mind – Jennifer McQuistion – historical romance
Strange Bird – Anna Jansson – Mystery set in Sweden
Love Irresistibly – Julie James – contemporary romance
nearly finished (within about 15%) – Ink – Amanda Sun – YA set in Japan
Which book did you enjoy most?
Strange Bird – the whole idea of an artificial bird flu were intriguing
Which did you enjoy least?
I struggled with Ink – I liked it, but because it was a pdf converted ebook, the formatting was a bit funky that made it hard to read
How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
sign me up – i’ll be there with bells on, and hopefully less conflicts 😉 I might consider doing a mini-challenging, or signing up to be a cheerleader – not sure though
