Readathon: Mid Event Meme

1. What are you reading right now?

The Broken Teaglass by Emily Arsenault which so far is fabulous. I'm really enjoying it.

2. How many books have you read so far?
HA! The equivalent of a whole? (2 halfs)

3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?

Mmmm...I don't know what other books I'll read yet so I don't actually know! I am considering The Knife of Never Letting Go as well as Pretty Little Liars

4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day?
No not really. My life is pretty easy.

5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?

Yes tons! Woke up late and keep getting distracted by this here computer!

6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
No surprises really....this is my fourth readathon.

7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?

Nope, I love everything about the Readathon. Though admittedly, a later starting time would work better for me.

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?

Yes very which is why I'm doing this survey. I only slept a few good hours last night.

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?

No tips, but is it normal to keep getting distracted by all the fanatastic snacks I have? :)

This is my first read-a-thon, and I'm really enjoying cheerleading! Dude, I've seriously been snacking ALL day. Hope you get some energy back! =)

Sounds like you need to move! Here's a song to dance to:

It's astounding, time is fleeting
Reading takes its toll
But listen closely, not for very much longer
You've almost met the goal

I remember doing the Read-a-thon
During those moments when
The blackness would hit me and sleep would be calling
Let's do the readathon again...
Let's do the readathon again!

It's just a book in your hand
And then a flip of the page
With your eyes on the words
You let your mind engage
But it's the cheerleaders that really drive you insane,
Let's do the readathon again!

Your book is dreamy, or hot and steamy
It stars a banshee, or no one at all
It’s in another dimension, there’s no comprehension
Oh no, there’s none at all
With a bit of a page flip
You're suddenly on a space ship
And nothing can ever be the same
You're strung out on cookies, you sound like a Wookie
Let's do the readathon again!

Well I was strolling through the bookstore just havin’ a look
When what should I espy but my next book
It shook me up, it took me by surprise
It had a sale tag and Care gave it 5 pies.
It lured me in and I felt a change
Time meant nothing, never would again
Let's do the readathon again!

I'm thinking about The Knife of Never Letting Go as well; the size of it keeps throwing me off though! Happy Reading!

The Book Resort said...

Amy, you need to maybe pop your self outside for a bit of air before getting back to reading?

Enjoy your books!

Peaceful Reader said...

Sounds like you are having a grand time!! Keep going!! I am impressed with anyone's ability to read all day.

Vasilly said...

Happy reading.

Florinda said...

I've blown off the mini-challenges, but have finished two books! And we're past the halfway point now. Go Readathon :-)!

Both THE KNIFE OF NEVER LETTING GO and PRETTY LITTLE LIARS are good. It is just going to depend on what mood you are in when the time comes. Keep reading and have fun.

Lisa said...

Snacks? Do tell! I had planned on getting fabulous snacks but alas, I did not. But would love to know which ones you have!!

Kailana said...

The Knife of Never Letting go is a really good book! I say go with that one. :)

Lenore Appelhans said...

My Life Is Pretty Easy! You're fab Amy - keep reading :)

Trish @ Love, Laughter, Insanity said...

Hmmm--why is it I don't know where you are! Maybe West Coast? Anyway, I'm the opposite...I wish I started at 5 AM so I could be done at 5AM. Although, I'm mighty perky in the morning. :P

You're doing great Amy!

(Diane) Bibliophile By the Sea said...

You are really doing great! Isn't the time flying by? I am starting to feel exhaustion setting in, but blog-hopping is helping. Keep up the good work.

Care said...

Go Amy, Go AMy, Go AMY GO! Cheers, Care

Britt said...

It's hard not to get distracted by the computer with all the readathon blog posts!!

Belle said...

Great job, Amy! Happy reading!

Being interested in snacks is totally okay :) I know this from experience!

Memory said...

I don't even have all that many snacks, and they keep distracting me!

Nicole (Linus's Blanket) said...

You've done a great job! Keep it up and enjoy where the evening takes you with your reading, If you're still up that is!

Eva said...

We're in the final quarter! You've done great so far-see it through to the end! You can do it!

Unknown said...

Hi! Just stopping by! I find I'm getting distracted by the computer a lot too but that's okay because I agree with what you said, everything about the readathon is fun!

I think it's impressive you're still awake!

katrina said...

Sounds like your doing great, good luck getting to the end ^_^

Nicole (Linus's Blanket) said...

It's me again. Hope you're still enjoying your book!

tanabata said...

I keep getting distracted by the computer too, as you can see because I'm here instead of reading. LOL. But it's fun regardless. Happy reading!

Lightheaded said...

Hope you're having fun in the last few minutes of the Read-a-Thon (either that or hope you get some much need rest)!

Louise said...

Did you get started on The Knife of Never Letting Go? I loved that book and am going to read no. 2 soon.

Hope you had a great read-a-thon. I know I did. It was my first.
