Dewey: Halfway!

I took a break for the afternoon for the football game. >.> Hence the lack of progress. But I'm back on now!

Mid-Event Survey:
1. What are you reading right now?
The Temple by George Herbert and Luck in the Shadows by Lynn Flewelling.
2. How many books have you read so far?
I've finished 2 and I'm about halfway through another.
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?
Goliath by Scott Westerfeld!
4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day?
I turned down a couple of invitations, and accepted another. I know, I'm like social butterfly! lol not really.
5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
I gave in and watched part of the football game. But only the second half. So. Yes.
6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
How SLOWLY I'm reading! I feel like I've been reading non-stop (which I basically have, except for challenges and the several-times-mentioned football), but I still haven't got much read. Whatever.
7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
Nope. It's awesome.
8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year?
Get up on time! :) I got up earlier than I did last year, though, so yay! 5 am is EARLY, YO.
9. Are you getting tired yet?
NEVAHHHHH. But it's only 5:30 here.
10. Do you have any tips for other Readers or Cheerleaders, something you think is working well for you that others may not have discovered?
VARIETY IS YOUR FRIEND. Whenever I get tired of something I read something else for a while.

You broke for FOOTBALL? How are we even friends?

I'm here to cheer! You're doing great -- especially with a little football action thrown in there, too. I haven't got a copy of Goliath, yet, but I'm really looking forward to it. Hope you like it!
