Dewey's 24 Hr RaT ~ Wrap-Up

 photo dewey-300x300_zps5f467a5a.jpg

Another Dewey's has come and gone. It was a fun one. I didn't meet my goal of 10 books. I guess 8 is all I can get done in 24 hours, but that's not too shabby! :) I did meet my other goals, so yay for that! :)


My goals for Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon ~
  • Read at least TEN (10) books ~ Only 8 Completed
  • Read at least 1 author requested / NetGalley book ~ Completed
    • The Tournament by Matthew Reilly
  • Read at least 1 book from my 365 Days of YA challenge ~ Completed
    • Forged by Erin Bowman
  • Do any Challenges that appeal to me, even if done late ~ Completed 2
  • Have Fun! ~ Completed! :)

End of Event Meme:

Which hour was most daunting for you?
Around 2 am, so hour 17-18. I didn't sleep well last night (I rarely do) so I was REALLY sleepy since 1-2 is my normal bed time. I listened to an audiobook, rested my eyes (but didn't fall asleep) for 15 minutes and got recharged. :)

Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
Depends on the reader, definitely lots of action, something to keep the plot moving along is what I like best.

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

What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
It's a well run machine, so everything is good. :)

How many books did you read?

What were the names of the books you read?
see below

Which book did you enjoy most?
None really WOWed me this time around, so I suppose I liked Forged the best, since it wrapped up the series, but Jeff Probst's Survivor Middle Grade trilogy was enjoyable as well.

Which did you enjoy least?
Floors by Patrick Carman ~ just wasn't doing it for me.

If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
Wasn't one this time, but was last time, and I'd say listen to short audiobooks while cheering, or focus on only cheering and not reading because it's a TON of work to do both.

How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
I will definitely join as a reader again, and I will likely do cheering again sometime as well, I just wasn't up for it this time.
