and Litsy @jlsbibliomania
While my first love was SF, I read widely in YA, urban fantasy, police procedurals, middle-grade, and non-fiction.
Now that I've slept, gone to work for a few hours, and steered my older son through a mountain of homework, I finally have a minute for the Dewey's Readathon closing survey.
Which hour was most daunting for you?
Definitely Hour 16 as I tried to finish up before my planned bedtime
Tell us ALLLLL the books you read!
I read 1 book – The Girl With All the Gifts
and 1 short story – The Call of Chthulu
For a total of 428 pages
Which books would you recommend to other Read-a-thoners?
The Girl With All the Gifts is a great choice to read in one gulp.
I typically recommend picture books for the transition times, and that’s worked better than the dense short story I picked this time.
What’s a really rad thing we could do during the next Read-a-thon that would make you smile?
I loooved the cheering mini-challenge in hour 12 this time and hope it continues. I’ve really missed both being a cheerleader and having folks cheering for us non-Twitter people. The rad thing you could do would be to open up the list of anticipated attendees a few days before the event so that those of us who like to cheer could select folks to cheer for as part of our pre-readathon prep rather than having to steal reading time to wade through the participant list.
How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again?
Schedule permitting, I’ll see you on April 28, 2018. I also hope to see you during 24in48 in January.
Would you be interested in volunteering to help organize and prep?
I was a GoodReads co-host for the first time and enjoyed that. I’d definitely be willing to help out on the day of, and might well sponsor a Book Depository prize next time.
