24 Hour Read-A-Thon Mid-Event Survey

Mid-Event Survey:
1. What are you reading right now? Empire of Night by Justin Somper
2. How many books have you read so far? 0
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon? The House of Dead Maids
4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day? not really
5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those? Yes, my little sister has been pestering me, but that was easy to deal with. It is my sister's birthday today, so I have to take a few large breaks.
6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far? That I am not getting as much reading done as I thought I would have by now.
7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? Not really. It seems to be going pretty great.
8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year? I would wake up earlier.
9. Are you getting tired yet? Not yet.
10. Do you have any tips for other Readers or Cheerleaders, something you think is working well for you that others may not have discovered? I have been taking breaks, so I don't get burned out.

Fun survey!

Swords are for fighting,


  1. Little sister! I would complain, but I am one myself! It sounds like things are going great. Have fun next half!

  2. A thought to mull over: “The best of a book is not the thought which it contains, but the thought which it suggests; just as the charm of music dwells not in the tones but in the echoes of our hearts.” -- John Greenleaf Whittier

    Enjoy your reading!

  3. "Woke up this morning with/a terrific urge to lie in bed all day and read."-Raymond Carver.
    Sunny reading vibes from Miami...Keep up the good work!

  4. Give me a R! Give me an E! Give me an A! Give me a D!
    What's that spell? Read! Read!
    Books are the best
    We'll not eat
    We'll not rest!

    Yeah, well eating and sleeping may be required for mortals, but you know what I mean :D
    Keep up the great work! And thanks for participating in my challenge.

  6. Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested.
    - Francis Bacon

    Keep up the good work!

  7. I know you're tired
    And losin' the fire
    You'd rather be sleeping
    But keep on reading!!

    If you're still up, I hope you're still moving! :)
