Dewey's 24-hour Readathon Wrap-up

1. Which hour was most daunting for you?
Hour 23...I was like wow....done now. lol somehow I managed to snuggle up on my bed and read without falling asleep.
2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
Like, books readers should read for the next read-a-thon? That I read for this one? I dunno I didn't read that much. The Rise of Renegade X was definitely the most of a page-turner and book that most people could enjoy, I think.
3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
Less mini-challenges that require a whole blog post.
4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
The cheerleaders and the hourly updates from the site were lovely.
5. How many books did you read?
4 and 1 manga, parts of 2 other books. 7 total if you want to be loose.
6. What were the names of the books you read?
The Rise of Renegade X by Chelsea Campbell
A Fatal Waltz by Tasha Alexander
Greenwitch by Susan Cooper
The Grey King by Susan Cooper
Hetalia vol 1 by Hideka Himaruya
A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner
7. Which book did you enjoy most?
8. Which did you enjoy least?
Probably the bit of Faulkner that I read. It was from the POV of the most unpleasant character.
9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
All my cheerleaders were fantastic.
10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?

I just love hearing you say "fantastic." It's a fantastic word, isn't it? :D

And I am SO glad that you liked Rise of Renegade X. :D I was starting to doubt my passionate love for it, since I never saw it anywhere. BUT NOW WE ARE IN A RELATIONSHIP AGAIN.
