Read-a-Thon mid-event Survey!

24 Oct

I’m half-way done with the Read-a-Thon, and I’m pausing to look back at the event so far.

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?

  1. Blue Smoke and Murder (St. Kilda Consulting, #4) by Elizabeth Lowell
  2. 2.75 books down (1022 pages)
  3. I’m not sure, I’m picking them as I go along
  4. Yup.  Nothing fancy, just letting my daughter and husband know they were on their own.
  5. Yes, one WebKinz crisis, and several lonely daughter moments.  Husband hoping I’d volunteer to deal with dinner (I suggested he order pizza.  Daughter then came in to object.  I ended up agreeing to order Chinese for dinner).  Nothing major.
  6. The pull between reading or doing mini-challenges, Twitter, visiting other blogs.
  7. Nope, it is wonderful as it is!
  8. I’ll think about that when I’m done– nothing major.
  9. Doing OK now, but I dozed while listening to an audiobook for 30 minutes!
  10. Chocolate, but I’ll bet they’ve all figured that out on their own.

    Ack! A webkinz crisis! (Do you ever stop to think about the very strange things we say as mothers?) 😉

    You are not the only one who ordered Chinese tonight and I’m now craving take-out in the middle of the night. Thanks a lot. 😛
