Mini-Challenge: Mid-Event Survey

This seems to be a mini-challenge Dewey is hosting. She does so much, you have to love her!

Mid-Event Survey:

1. What are you reading right now? The Other Woman by Jane Green

2. How many books have you read so far? 2

3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon? I'm really looking forward to the RIP III Challenge. I picked up It by Stephen King just for the event.

4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day? Nope. I work one Saturday a month and luckily this weekend was not my weekend to work. Perfect timing I would guess.

5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those? Well I'm currently dealing with plenty of interruptions. My boyfriends friend just showed up with his girlfriend and two kids. :( So I'm sure I won't be doing as much reading as I'd like until they leave. Other than that, my interruptions haven't been too bad. I had to help my boyfriend a few times with winterizing the boat, but nothing that took longer than 5 min or so.

6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far? The cheerleaders, the readers, and random people stopping by to wish me good luck. I'm honestly overwelmed by everyone's kindness.

7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? Not really, I think everything was very well organized. Thanks to Dewey and all the other co-hosts.

8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year? Make sure I have the house to myself for the day. heh

9. Are you getting tired yet? Surprisingly, no. I'm sure that will all change around midnight.

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? I'm really not sure. This is my first Read-A-Thon and I'm just learning as I go. Maybe some alumni gave give ME some tips! :)

This is my first read-a-thon too! It has been lots of fun. Your garage sale finds look good. The Beach House and Ain't She Sweet are good! Read on!
