Dewey's Read-a-thon [April 2020]: Closing Survey

Closing Survey

  1. How would you assess your reading overall? 4 1/2 stars
  2. Did you have a stategy, and if so, did you stick to it? My strategy was literally just to enjoy myself and I did.
  3. What was your favorite snack? Pringles.
  4. Wanna volunteer for our next event? Perhaps. My schedule is unpredictable, but I may be willing to do something. Stay tuned for the recap post!

Dewey's Read-a-thon [April 2020]: Hours 19-24

Mental/Physical Update: I tried, but failed to make it to hour 24. Excuses, excuses, but A girl was just exhausted. I had a good time. I napped a bit at hour 20, then struggled to focus on reading. I got a second wind and got some reading in but it was slow going. Right around hour 22 or 22:30 I wasn't taking in what I was reading and I started doing that long blink, so I tagged out. I still call this readathon a success! I'll get to my wrap-up a bit later. Still a bit sluggish.

Dewey's Closing Survey
Well Quincy slept in, so I did too.  Read another few chapters of The Secret Garden - Frances Hodgson before falling asleep around 1 am. 
 
How would you assess your reading overall?
More reading than I have done since COVID-19 turned our lives upside down. I'm satisfied.
 
Did you have a strategy, and if so, did you stick to it?
Only strategy was to focus on reading and to remember to turn on an audiobook when I was working on other things. I was partially successful at staying out of the games on my phone.
 
What was your favorite snack?
Pretzels & Peanut Butter
 
Wanna volunteer for our next event?
I'll tell you closer to it. I've been participating in at least one #Readathon a year (either Dewey's or 24in48) since October 2013, but often have conflicting events. Cheering on everyone else's reading is one of my favorite parts of the Readathon, so if I don't have conflicts, I'd probably sign up for a shift somewhere.

Dewey's Read-a-thon [April 2020]: Hours 13-18

Mental/Physical Update: Starting to have trouble with concentration now. I was doing well until about 1:30-2.  With having a not-so-great night of sleep, the struggle will be real now. I've finished World War Moo and begun Shattered Hourglass.  I may have to set an alarm and take a 30-60 minute nap. I will try to soldier it out like always, but it's more about quality reading than quantity of reading.
