Dewey’s #ReadAThon Wrap Up Post: Still time to comment for Charity! #Giving #literacyTX

Ok Y’all! The Read-a-Thon is done and it was so much fun!  I made it to somewhere between hour 20 and 21 (not sure because I fell asleep while reading)–that is a record for me.  I had a total of 17.5 hours reading time!  WOOT!

I am going to be counting the comments on this post towards my final charity giving amount but here is where we stand right now:

17 hours= $17
3 total books= $6 (I am counting the 1/2 of Iron Kissed and 1/2 of Lover Reborn as 1)
134 comments= $33.50

Total so far: 56.50

  1. Which hour was most daunting for you? Hour 19!  I am not a night person and don’t think I have seen 2 am in FOREVER!
  2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? I think reading a series is what kept me hooked during the read-a-thon!  This time it was a new series to me: Mercy Thompson
  3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? I had fun!  I did more mini-challenges this year! I think just better word of mouth so more people can participate.
  4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? This is my 4th one so I think being more comfortable with the setup helped.  I did like how the hourly posts were on time and available!
  5. How many books did you read? 2 complete books and 1/2 of a third/1/2 of an audio
  6. What were the names of the books you read? Moon Called, Blood Bound, and Iron Kissed by Patricia Briggs.  Listened to 4 hours of Lover Reborn by J.R. Ward
  7. Which book did you enjoy most? Moon Called
  8. Which did you enjoy least?Iron Kissed (too much love triangle for my tastes)
  9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? I was a cheerleader one year and I know it is hard work.  I think if there were a set of twitter cheerleaders and then set of blog cheerleaders that would be fun. 
  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 do it again.  I think I will make it a point to get up and move every hour for 5 min.  Just take a little quick break.  Also I think every 3 hours take a 20 min break. I think I could make it all 24 hours then!

Later today I am going to be visiting blogs!  I can’t wait to see the results from all the mini-challenges!  They were quite FUN!

    I love Dewey's read-a-thon. If I hadn't been out of town all weekend, I would have done it. But it was fun to follow along with your progress updates. It's hard for me to stay up til 2am too.

    Congrats on a job well done! :)

    I hope my comment will still count, I am sorry I missed this, I was really sick the last couple of days and spent the whole day in bed. 17 hours. Wow that is a long time to read. This is something I definitely want to try when my kids are a bit older. I liked the Mercy Thompson series but thought book two was a little dark. All im all a great series.

    17+ hours. WOW! My problem is that I want a glass of wine or a margarita and then it is over for me. Glad Mercy could help you get through it.

    I read a series for this read-a-thon as well (The Hunger Games) and I think that helped with my motivation, especially if its a good series. Excellent job! You deserve a pat on the back.
