Read-a-Thon mini-challenge 2

Mid-Event Survey Mini-Challenge

1. What are you reading right now?
The Fortunes of Indigo Skye by Deb Caletti

2. How many books have you read so far? 3

3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?
The Dust of 100 Dogs by A.S. King

4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day?
Nope, nothing special was planned.

5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
I had to deal with phone calls. But fortunately, they were short.

6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
Great cheerleader support!

7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
None yet. So far, I like how it is being run.

8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year?
As a Reader, I would try to avoid running any errands. I had to do a grocery run which took up precious reading time.

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?
Keeping a glass of water or beverage nearby, standing up for a quick stretch or doing a 30 second house walkabout helps.

Check out my read-a-thon progress here.


  1. That's so awesome you're not tired yet! I'm feeling a little tired, but I'll just caffeinate more. ;)

  2. That's great that you are not tired yet! Keep it up! Happy reading!

  3. Looks like you're doing great! You know, there's so many people reading this time around that I think the cheerleaders need some cheerleading support. ;-) I'll be lucky if I get to comment on each reader just once, but it's still so much fun to see all the people reading this time! Anywho - keep it up and have fun! =D

  4. Great job so far..can't believe you're not tired yet!! I'm getting sleepy!! :0

  5. Walking around definitely helps. In fact I need to do that shortly to revive myself a bit. Best of luck with the reading :-)

  6. I bet the walkabouts are helpful. I've read of a lot of people reading in their bed and I think I would just fall asleep. :) Especially in the later hours.

  7. some good advise there. happy reading!

  8. Great job on reading. Our phone rang early in the day, but not since then.

  9. Good job. I can't believe you're not tired. I'm just cheerleading and I'm getting sleepy!
