Read-A-Thon: Mid-Event Survey

Mid-Event Survey:
1. What are you reading right now? - Dropped Dead Stitch by Maggie Sefton, but it's not holding my attention, so may dig further into the stack.

2. How many books have you read so far? - completed 2 that were already partially read, and began a third.

3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon? - I don't really know what I'll be reading yet.

4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day? - Can you believe, I totally forgot the read-a-thon until yesterday?  So, no time for special arrangements.

5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those? - FREQUENT interruptions.  Caring for my poor injured puppy, helping hubby with a plumbing project (ick!), laundry...

6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far? - The incredible creativity of the mini-challenge hosts.  

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? - Advance planning:  A trip to the library to stock up, fewer interruptions, more food.

9. Are you getting tired yet? I live in a time zone that started reading at 6:00 a.m.  Since I actually overslept and didn't start till 7:30 a.m., I'm doing pretty good now.

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? - not yet


  1. I hope your puppy feels better and that you are still going strong this readathon! Keep it up, you rock!

  2. Way to go Tami. Hope you're having fun.

  3. Hi Tami!
    The Readers' list was so long that I didn't see your name until now. Glad you're here. Sorry about all those interruptions. Poor, injured puppy.
    Happy Reading,
