Readathon Closing Survey

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 🙂


    1. I do recommend it. It’s really relaxed, so there’s no pressure to do more than you want / are able to 🙂

  1. Great job! I really wanted to do this but my hubby turned 50 this weekend so it just wasn’t in the cards.
    Do they do this 3 times a year?

      1. It is twice a year – April and October. It is good fun, but it does get in the way of life!
