TSS: Readathon: Hour 24: Final Hour Wrapup
1. Which hour was most daunting for you?
The one just before I caved and went to sleep.
2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
Children's nonfiction picture books worked great for me this year.
3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
I should be awarded more prizes. Like at least one.
4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
5. How many books did you read?
26. Hey, that's pretty good, right?
6. What were the names of the books you read?
Okay, here goes:
Jackson and Bud's Bumpy Ride
Eleanor, Quiet No More
Bring Me Some Apples and I'll Make You a Pie
Camping With the President
Secret World of Walter Anderson
If America Were a Village
Unite or Die
What Can You Do With an Old Red Shoe
Wrestling the ABCs
One Beetle Too Many
Pippo the Fool
What Darwin Saw
Bubble Homes and Fish Farts
Nic Bishop: Butterflies and Moths
7. Which book did you enjoy most?
Hmmm...maybe, Jackson and Bud's Bumpy Ride?
8. Which did you enjoy least?
I liked them all!
9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
I wasn't, but I'd like to try it one readathon. Thank you, cheerleaders! Thank you, Diane! Thank you, Louise! Thank you, softdrink!
10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
It's almost assured I will participate next time. I loved it. And I will probably be a reader again.
A final readathon challenge...A desperately competitive nature drives me to want more followers....I'm extending this challenge to the end of the month to anyone who becomes a follower....

You did great. My children's books didn't arrive in time for the read-a-thon. Maybe they will next week.ReplyDelete

Congratulations - what a great wrap-up. I loved your improvement suggestion :)ReplyDelete
Oh. my. gosh. I got ten books read this weekend. Wrote a couple of posts for this week. And thought I was doing great. Until I looked at your blog tonight. Wow. Wow. Wow. You read. And wrote. A bunch! AMAZING! Can't wait to read some of these!ReplyDelete
Wow, that's a stack of books -- congrats on a job well done!ReplyDelete
I'm drooling over the idea of that many children's books in a day. Maybe I'll do that next time!ReplyDelete
Congrats on such a great read-a-thon, Debbie! I'm tempted to spend an afternoon sitting in the children's department at work and pick out a stack of books to read with a big hot mocha. There are so many great books out there for kids.ReplyDelete
I am enjoying reading your reviews. I love the conciseness of each one. Something Ihave difficulty with.ReplyDelete
I think we should replace all textbooks with children's picture books! All of them! All textbooks---gone! And replaced with delightful picture books.ReplyDelete
