End of Event Survey
1) Which hour was most daunting for you?
Definitely the last one. I think I may have fallen asleep for a few minutes. Before that I was actually okay; then suddenly I finished Daughter of the Forest and bam! wall of exhaustion.

2)Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
I liked all my books!

3) Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
It would be cool if all the mini challenge hosts lested how long their challenge would last prominently on their pages. Or if it was just listed on the main page. But really, not that big a deal.

4) What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
Overall I think it was really good! I actually didn't spend much time on the computer, so I can't say I know all that much about how everything went, but I had a great time.

5) How many books did you read?
About five and a half, altogether. One more than last time!

6) What were the names of the books you read?
They're listed at the top of the post.

7) Which book did you enjoy most?
Hmmm, tough choice. Probably The Arctic Incident.

8) Which did you enjoy least?
Again, it's a really difficult choice – I liked all of them. Honestly, probably Darkfever, because as much as I love the Fever series, I was really ready to sleep at that point.

10 ) How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
I certainly will if I can!

A huge thanks to everyone who stopped by and commented or chatted on Twitter! And many thanks to the awesome read-a-thon hosts for putting everything together and keeping us entertained! Congrats to everyone who participated!


  1. Wow you got through a lot! Good job! =) It was sooo much fun heehee!

  2. You read a ton! I am so impressed! You are a read a thon champ :)


I love your comments! I try to respond to them...eventually!

This is now an award-free blog. I love and totally appreciate that you thought of me, but I know myself better than to think I would be organized enough to pass them along, and that doesn't seem fair.
