Hour 12

Dude.  Do you realize you’re almost half-way there?  There will be no giving up.  None.  You hear me?  Keep reading the good fight.  I’m giving you some inspiring music here to help you get pumped.  Look at your pile of books as you sing along and substitute “read” for “rock!”  Hey while you’re at it, get up, move around, shake your bootay, get some blood flowing, get your game face on and get ready to conquer the second half of this Read-A-Thon!


It’s time for the mid-event meme!  Post your answers on your blog and then come back here to leave your link!

Mid-Event Survey:
1. What are you reading right now?
2. How many books have you read so far?
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?
4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day?
5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year?
9. Are you getting tired 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?
Sign the linky below with a link to your post with your answers.  There will be 4 winners: 1st gets 1 prize packs of books, along with chocolate coins, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th get three books of their choice.  This is only open until the beginning of Hour 14.

  1. I finally got my mid-event meme response posted. Took me about 20 minutes to type it all in what with holding a sleeping baby at the same time. Sleeping babies are quite conducive to making progress in finishing my book, though. So back to reading!


  2. It’s Hour 14 and I finally posted my answers to the mid-event survey at:

    Lucidia, my blog

    I’m running out of steam, so will probably get some sleep. If I end up wide awake in the middle of the night (it happens often), I’ll read some more. Otherwise, I look forward to the next read-a-thon.
