Mid-Event Survey

1. What are you reading right now? The Subtle Knife by Philip Pullman

2. How many books have you read so far? I’m working on my second book now. I know, so slow! :O

3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon? Actually, I’m quite looking forward to reading The Subtle Knife. I just read the first book, obviously, so I can’t wait to see what happens next!

4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day? Not really. I’m going to watch my sister’s competition in an hour or so, and other than that, I hadn’t had any plans for the whole day.

5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those? Gah, yes. My other sister was massively bored, and so she wanted me to play video games with her and watch TV with her (and she said I could read at the same time, but that is insanely hard to do, I don’t know if you know). So basically I haven’t gotten any reading done the past two or three hours, ish. Sad day!

6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far? How little I’ve actually been able to read! I’m a pretty fast reader, but I haven’t really gotten much read yet. Which is disappointing, cause I was hoping for maybe four or five books, I guess. At this rate, I’ll be lucky to read three. Mayyybe four if I don’t sleep tonight at all.

7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? Not really! I think it’s totally awesome! I would love to see more mini-challenges and things, I suppose.

8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year? Read more!!

9. Are you getting tired yet? A little bit. I took a mini nap earlier, so I’m doing alright, but I’m going to have to take another one if I want to stay up and read into the wee hours.

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? Doubtful. . . Yeah, not really. Besides choosing an engaging book that you actually want to read and not wasting time on books that will bog you down. Read because you love to read, not so you can tell everyone at the end of the day that you did.

No idea which book I should start next, though. . . Actually, I think I’m going to take a bit of a break, take a shower, entertain my poor bored-to-death sister, and then get back into it. I feel like I’ve been hiding in a hole all day, haha.
