Dewey’s read-a-thon October 2012: Nog 3, 3 minuten voordat ik stop!

  • Which hour was most daunting for you?
  • Around 10-12pm, surprisingly! But I had been up since 4.30PM Friday!

  • Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
  • Hm..I’ll get back to that when my cognitive functioning is restored!

  • Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
  • Assign team members for website maintenance. Dead links, link-ups, comments on the website. A standard/main website cheerleaders page (with log-in for ‘team communication’?) Lighten the current hosts’s burden!
    Another thing is the challenge schedule. The last-minute-system makes it hard to schedule and plan ahead. Knowing all of the challenges might ruin the surprise, but my girlfriend had a great idea! Blocks! Share them in blocks and announce the challenges for the next three hours. Having all the challenge-posts ready a few days ahead of time will also save a lot of stress for those organizing ๐Ÿ˜‰ And I have few suggestions for the website too! But I think I can better mail those ^_^

  • What do you think worked really well in this yearโ€™s Read-a-thon?
  • As per usual: The community! I’ve seen a lot of comments and motivation on twitter and blogs, from cheerleaders, readers and even non-participants! I also think the team-captains were a great idea.

  • How many books did you read?
  • None! Full time cheering! *o/* I will have an afterparty ๐Ÿ˜› (It’s a thing! ๐Ÿ˜† )

  • If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next yearโ€™s Cheerleaders?
  • Make a (bookmark) list of blogs to visit, and check off where you have been by either checking (workflowy is awesome!) or moving the bookmark to a ‘visited’ folder. Keeping track! ๐Ÿ˜€ And plan on when you want to cheer, make a schedule if you want to read too. And stick to it! It’s so much fun, but you might end up not reading if you don’t. (^_^;) And SLEEP before the read-a-thon!

  • How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
  • 100% positive!

  • Most definitely! I might even like to host/captain. I’m on twitter constantly anyway!

That’s it folks, it has been a pleasure. Love you all! Until April! (or other events!) o/

I’ll be hosting a challenge next month! Turns out a lot of you biblioklepts have books on your shelf that aren’t yours! It’ll be ‘Not your book November!’ #notyourbook I’ll announce it after my week of hibernation-to-catch-up-sleep!

  1. It sure was fun seeing you on Twitter and the blogs. Great idea to keep track of where you commented. I wish, this morning, that I could go back to see if some of my cheerleading comments got responses but it sounds like too much work to go find myself on all of those blogs.
