It’s done! 😀
1. Which hour was most daunting for you?
For me it was hour 17, which was when I got up at around 5:15 AM to get back into reading. I just wanted more sleep! A shower and a few strong coffees helped, though, and I got through it!
2. Tell us ALLLLL the books you read!
My reading list changed quite bit during the event, but I managed to read around 1,200 pages over the 24 hours.
3. Which books would you recommend to other Read-a-thoners?
I definitely recommend Neil Gaiman’s Norse Mythology, and Avril Joy’s Sometimes a River Song, which is a little harrowing, but incredibly captivating. And I loved the gothic aspect of Bodies of Water by V. H. Leslie.
4. What’s a really rad thing we could do during the next Read-a-thon that would make you smile?
Just keep doing what you do! I love readathon and the community element, which you can be as involved in as much or as little as you want to – I think it’s great that a group of like-minded people from all over the world can get involved in the event at the same time.
5. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? Would you be interested in volunteering to help organize and prep?
Very likely! I can’t do it twice a year, but I do try to do either the April or the October readathon, depending what’s going on that weekend. And I wouldn’t mind helping to organise and prep next time round 🙂
