Halfway Through

So part of this read-a-thon are many challenges to keep us sane through these 24 hours. Sadly I am having to do this update from work....silly kids... you don't need to eat on Saturdays! why do you keep coming and ordering food?  Anyway it has finally slowed down enough for me to report.



Mid-Event Survey:
1. What are you reading right now?
I'm switching back and forth between Women in Love by D. H. Larwence and A Passion Redeemed by Julie Lessman.
2. How many books have you read so far?
Sadly just one, this homework assignment (Women in Love) is much slower reading than I would like.
 3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?
Probably Secret Journal of Brett Colton
4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day?
My day wasn't able to be freed up so I'm missing out on 4 hours
5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
my housemates have been really understanding so they have left me alone and kept it down. But I did have to come into work so I have never worked faster in my life to get food out to my customers~
6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
I thought it would be much harder but I am really loving it.
7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
At this point I am perfectly content.
8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year?
Not stay up late the night before.
9. Are you getting tired yet?
Yes
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 several reading spots in my house that I have been switching around. It has helped me keep alert and awake.

  3. I'm here to cheer! I'm so glad that you are loving the experience. You're doing great! Cool that you're getting some homework reading done in the process -- I made a big dent in the book club selection that we'll be discussing on Thursday.
