Mini Challenge Hour 12 Mid-point survey

1. What are you reading right now? Hidden by Shelley Shepard Gray

2. How many books have you read so far? 2 finished and this is my third

3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon? I haven't decided what else to read! I want to choose carefully.

4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day? Actually, this weekend worked perfectly, I'm housesitting and all by myself.

5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those? Not many, just a neighbor dropping by.

6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far? How I'm sort of craving watching a movie right now! I read so much in my daily life (it's also part of my job) and have actually fantasized about having a solid day to read the many books I want to that I didn't realize how tired I would get!

7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? Nope, I think it's super fun the way it is!

8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year? I might stock up on YA books with tons of angst, and leave the books that must be reviewed out of it.

9. Are you getting tired yet? YES! It's only 8:30 but I've been reading since 9 this morning. Reading always makes me sort of zone out and sleepy, so it's not surprising. (by the way there is no way I'm telling my students this is what I did this weekend....they never read for pleasure and already think I'm a huge nerd!)

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? Um, nope, ask me again at the end. :)

Hey there! I'm off to sleep a bit but will be up and ready for my mini-challenge on hour 19!

Ha, the angsty books are always so compelling!

Aw, your poor students, never reading for pleasure! I would tell them so that they'd realize that reading is SO awesome that people voluntarily do it for 24 hours! :)

I totally wanted to watch a movie when I did my timed reading challenge. So I understand your urge!
