Hour 12: Midway-survey!

  1. What are you reading right now?
  2. I just finished Ronald Giphart’s “Heblust” and am reading in “Extremely loud and incredibly close” which I ADORE. I’ve been read 3 fairy tales (yes, you read that right >:3) and will either read another short story or continue in ELaIC.

  3. How many books have you read so far?
  4. 1 tiny one. (46 pages) + 10 pages.

  5. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?
  6. So many! ELaIC, “The Tao of Pooh” and “Gypsy Boy: One Boy’s Struggle To Escape From A Secret World”.

  7. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day?

  8. Not sure if this is technically preparing to free up, but we did divide and conquer things by combining it with Ingrid’s birthday party! 😀

  9. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
  10. Plenty. Mostly by myself. Overslept, didn’t finish my challenge, finish preparing my posts…I was a mess, basically. I dealt with those by stepping away – and asking for help from my friends here =) (Heya! o/)

  11. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
  12. I’m..actually Reading! And doing challenges! And ok when I decided to not do them! And barely on twitter! And reading!

  13. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
  14. As suggested before, put out a list of the hourly challenges with a brief description so people can decide ahead of time if they want to participate. Saves a lot of checking, searching and pondering – not to mention missing out on things because you don’t check hourly – and leaving time to read! 😀

  15. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year?
  16. Not oversleep. And plan! And use the templates! (Basically what I’ve been doing, but ruined by my oversleeping!)

  17. Are you getting tired yet?
  18. Slightly, but I can feel that second wind coming! Which is a good thing, because I’m hosting soon! 😀

  19. Do you have any tips for other Readers or Cheerleaders, something you think is working well for you that others may not have discovered?
  20. Templates. Frikking post templates. :p And twitter lists! And naps. 20 minutes every 4 hours, uberman style.
