Readathon Roundup


readathonroundupThe books I read. With the ones I didn’t in the background…

  1. Which hour was most daunting for you? Well, I fell asleep at about 3am, so let’s go with that.
  2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? I think ‘The Machine’ is probably my pick for readathon reading. Other recent reads that would work well include ‘Night Film’ by Marisha Pessl (though perhaps a bit long…), and ‘The Land of Decoration’ by Grace McLeen.
  3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? It would be great if the start times rotated (1pm to 1pm is pretty brutal)
  4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? The cheerleaders were amazing! And I loved the twitter community
  5. How many books did you read? Four
  6. What were the names of the books you read? ‘The View on the Way Down’ by Rebecca Wait, ‘The Machine’ by James Smythe, ‘The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P.’ by Adelle Waldman, and ‘Wool. Part One’ by Hugh Howey.
  7. Which book did you enjoy most? Either ‘The Machine’ or ‘The View on the Way Down’. Both fantastic but in very different ways.
  8. Which did you enjoy least? Nathaniel P. Still enjoyed it, just not as much as the others!
  9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? NA
  10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? I can’t wait! I didn’t engage much with the challenges this time, so perhaps that should be my goal for the next one?
