I Made It - Dewey 24 Hrs Read-A-Thon





It the end of another long 24 hours and I am barely hanging on. I am very pleased that I finished all the books that I picked out and they were EXCELLENT – I will be following up with reviews later on in the week..

I didn’t get around to much blogs but the few I did get to everyone was organized and having loads of fun…

This is last survey for  the event and I am ready to pull the covers over my head….


1. Which hour was most daunting for you?

Just after the time change – 2 am, because the clock them jumped back another hour…. then, I was definately at the “KILL ME NOW” moment..

2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?

Nope – not even going to go there. It’s up to each individual taste and tolerance.. and of course how much planning they can or are willing to do to prepare for the day.

3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?

Nope – I was good with it all…

4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?


The organization and the communication of info was excellently done

5. How many books did you read?

Six books

6. What were the names of the books you read?

Ryder's Wife -  Sharon Sala – 326 pages
Roman's Heart  - Sharon Sala – 287 pages
Royal's Child  - Sharon Sala – 362 pages

Horizons - Mickie B. Ashling – 284 pages

What A Dragon Should Know – G. A. Aiken – 384 pages

It’s not how good you are, It’s how good you want to be – Paul Aden – 127 pages


Total page count – 1770 pages


7. Which book did you enjoy most?

Horizons - Mickie B. Ashling

What A Dragon Should Know – G. A. Aiken

8. Which did you enjoy least?


All six were exceptional good books

9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?


nope – nice job… by all

10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?

Definately I will be participating next time. Last time I was a cheerleader and this time due to other commitments I just read through..

But as long as I have nothing that I can’t et out of next time, I will consider being a cheerleader again or even holding a mini Challenge…
