Spring 2015: Dewey's 24 hours Readathon: End of Event meme

Hello everyone. I slept for about 6 hours. I'm still feeling a but woozy, so I will probably go back to bed, but I wanted to update the End of Event Meme:

Which hour was most daunting for you?

I couldn't make it past hour 20, I could feel my body giving up, so I went to bed.

Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
Towards the end, I went to comics, I was reading Sex Criminals and Rat Queens, their art is beautiful and the story keeps you hoocked, so I will recommend something like that. 

Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
No guys, I am always in awe on how you organize the event, specially this year with the so many readers!

What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
I can only speak for our team, but I know the cheerleaders kept very active and that always motivate other.

How many books did you read?
4 books and 3 comics

What were the names of the books you read?
L'Oubli que nous serons by Héctor Abad (really liked it); How to be a Woman by Caitlin Moran (it was ok, it picked up at the end); The View from Castle Rock by Alice Munro (Liked it, she has a very interesting style), Inés del Alma mia, by Isabel Allende (It was very good). I also finished The Yellow Wall-Paper Short story. Sex Criminals: Vol 1, Rat Queens #3 and #4

Which book did you enjoy most?
L'Oubli que nous serons.

Which did you enjoy least?
While it picked up at the end, How to be a Woman had me thinking of DNFing at first.

If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
Always make time to cheer for your fellow readers; give yourself a goal (say 5 visits/hour) and set that time aside from your reading time; read the post and try to write comments showing that you actually are there for the person. 

How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
I would love to be there this fall. Everything depends on how things go with my studies. But if not as a reader, I for sure will be a cheerleader!

Pages read: 1509

Hours slept: 4/24

Total hours reading: 20/24
