Aw, this is my final hour as cohost. 😦 I’m terribly upset, so I’ve decided to post this MST3K video to cheer myself– and, by extension, you guys– up.

More important than Blast Hardcheese, you’re now officially halfway through the readathon! Congratulations, everyone! You’re doing SO awesome, and I know you can keep up the momentum. Read lots, take breaks, drink water and dance often!

Mini-Challenges
Yay, I get to host the mid-event survey! Post your answers at 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?
