Read-A-Thon Wrap-up! Whew, my eyes are tired!

Here is my wrap-up for the Dewey's 24 hour Read-A-Thon. And May I say I'm pretty proud of myself for lasting as long as I did.

Here is the "End of the Read-A-Thon" meme -

1. Which hour was most daunting for you? Probably mid-afternoon when everyone in the world seemed to think I needed to be doing something besides reading....ok, maybe not the world, but my family at least!

2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? By the time Read-A-Thon rolls around again, there will be so many new and exciting books out, that it's nearly impossible to recommend any right now.

3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? I thought it was run beautifully!

4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? Having the sign-ups well in advance was very helpful!

5. How many books did you read? Five and a half

6. What were the names of the books you read?
 Remedies by Kate Ledger
 Mothers and Other Liars by Amy Bourret
 Fiber and Brimstone by Laura Childs
 Naked Heat by Richard Castle
 The Wet Nurse's Tale by Erica Eisdorfer
 Part of The Tale of Oat Cake Crag by Susan Wittig Albert

7. Which book did you enjoy most? The Wet Nurse's Tale by Erica Eisdorfer - very funny!

8. Which did you enjoy least? I liked them all

9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? Wasn't a cheerleader, but they did a great job!

10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? I'd like to help with the mini-challenges. Just too much on my plate to help this year.

 Running total of pages read: 1800 pages wow!

 Running total of time spent reading: 18 hours

 I really enjoyed this Read-A-Thon, and now I must have a write-a-thon to write up all these reviews!

Congratulations. That's a lot of books. I have only read Remedies. I liked it. The Wet Nurse's tale does sound funny.
