Dewey Read-A-Thon Final Update

End of Event Meme
 
Which hour was most daunting for you? Hours 19 - 24 were difficult. Hour 23 was the worst! I am glad I had an audiobook, so I could walk around while listening to my final read.  

 
Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? Ajax Penumbra 1969 the prequel to Mr. Penumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore; You Know What You Have To Do by Bonnie Shimko is a suspenseful YA read. 


Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-A-Thon next year? It was a great event. I have no suggestions for improvement.

 
What do you think worked really well in this years read-a-thon? The Cheerleaders were awesome this year and my inaugural read-a-thon book party was a success.
 
How many books did you read? I finished 4 books and started a 5th.
 
What were the names of the books you read?
  • You Know What You Have To Do by Bonnie Shimko
  • Ajax Penumbra 1969 by Robin Sloan
  • The Year of Billy Miller by Kevin Henkes
  • Life Is So Good by George Dawson
  • The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin Performed by Jeff Woodman
Which book did you enjoy most? I enjoyed all of my reads this read-a-thon, but if I had to choose one it would be Ajax Penumbra 1969
 
Which book did you  enjoy least? I enjoyed all of my reads this read-a-thon, but if I had to choose one that I liked least it would be You Know What You Have To Do. Horror is not my genre and THAT ENDING. THAT. ENDING.
 
If you were a Cheerleader,  do you have any advice for next year's Cheerleaders? I was not a Cheerleader, but I must say TEAM OTTER ROCKS!
 
How likely are you to participate in a Read-a-thon again? I am VERY likely to participate in a Read-a-thon again. What role would you be likely to take next time? I would like to be a Reader again. I would also consider hosting a mini-challenge.

  2. I love The Westing Game! When I taught 5th grade I used to use that novel for a novel study.
