Well, this was fun!! I didn't finish full length books on the event as my time was somewhat limited and I didn't want to wake up very early today and end up like a coffee zombie for the rest of the day..
So here is my wrap up post for the whole event: (now all I have to do is write the reviews - oh boy.....)
1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
Netherlands, it's a sunny sunny day too
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
The girl on the train!
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
snack? you mean coffeeeee
4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
I'm just an ordinary girl who loves to read..
5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to?
This is my first one and I'm not sure what to expect to be honest!
Mini Challenge - Operation Quotation!
Time has a way of burying things, shifting like the desert and swallowing entire civilizations, erasing them from map and memory. Always, in the end, everything returns to dust.
“The Forbidden Wish” by Jessica Khoury
and I am pleased to say that I was one of the random winners!!
Mini Challenge - Readblock
What keeps you from reading?
(nothing in particular - just sitting in front of my computer screen can keep me from doing anything really...)
Mini Challenge - Share a Quote!
(yes I found the quote-sharing challenges easier to participate in for obvious reasons!)
Pick a quote from the book that you are reading or books that you've read during this read-a-thon.
― Jane Austen, Pride And Prejudice (the graphic novel)
Mid event update
And for the whole day mini challendge over @playster
I pair "Every Heart is a Doorway" with ♪ Your Bones, Of Monsters and Men.
End of the event survey + Book list wrap-up!
- Which hour was most daunting for you?
I wasn't a hard-core reader for this readathon, so I didn't find one hour very daunting in particular
- Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
I read a lot of graphic novels and of books that I have already read (and liked). I finished a lot of them so I got the sense of that elusive sense of accomplishement ..lol
- Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next season?/What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
This is the first one for me, so I wouldn't know how things turned out in the past. I thought everything worked out great!
- How many books did you read?/What were the names of the books you read?
10 books, 1071 pages, time spent reading ~9hours
- Which book did you enjoy most?
Every Heart is a Doorway. It's not just a pretty cover guys!
- Which did you enjoy least?
The bunny suicides.. I thought the title was weird but I thought why not? OMG.. If you know the cartoon known as "Happy tree friends" then you might guess what this was all about... I did not like this at all......
- How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
Definitely! I will be more prepared next time and who knows? maybe I would commit for 19 hours instead of 9!
How did you do on the readathon this year?
