This hour's mini-challenge is Mid-Event survey:
1. What are you reading right now?
The Titan’s Curse (Book 3 of the Percy Jackson & The Olympians series) by Rick Riordan - a great children's series
2. How many books have you read so far?
On my third!
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?
Red Eye, Black Eye, a graphic novel by K. Thor Jensen that I grabbed from my school's "Diversions" collection. It looks really interesting, and I should be able to fly through it.
4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day?
Ha, no. Although, I suppose, my school readings might suffer a little tomorrow.
5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
The only interruptions I've had have really been more of annoyances - I have a ton of fruit flies in my apartment right now from our indoor herb garden. Know a good way to get rid of fruit flies? Other than that, my roommate is out, and for once, my pet bird is being quiet.
6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
How fast it's going by. It's really been 11 hours?
7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
Nope (not yet, at least... maybe after I've slept...)
8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year?
Again, I'm going to need some sleep to gain perspective on this... ;)
9. Are you getting tired yet?
Can you tell?
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?
Picking different genres is a great way to keep interested, and children's books (like, the level before YA) or YA books are fast reads and can be quite captivating.
