Read-a-thon Update #3

I decided to participate in the meme for this hour since we are halfway through.

Mid-Event Survey:
1. What are you reading right now? Just going to start Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer

2. How many books have you read so far? 3

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

4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day? My husband took care of the kids and then in the afternoon a friend and I checked into a hotel so we could read in peace this evening.

5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those? My kids were in and out today. But really, they just needed a few snuggles and kisses and they were off again!

6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far? How quickly it goes by!

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

8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year? I'll definitely be participating again. Right now I can't think of anything I would do differently.

9. Are you getting tired yet? Not yet. Talk to me in a couple of hours though.

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? Read short books that you are really excited about!

I've read 600 pages so far, so I'm a little behind what I accomplished in April. Look for my review of How I Live Now coming up in the next few hours!

Looks like you're doing great so far! Good luck in the rest of the read-a-thon!

Corky said...

I can not believe that you read 600 pages so far!

I love you so much!

Dan said...

We love you! KEEP READING!!!

Okay...Cork, Carter and I were puzzling. But everyone's in bed now.

Have fun reading!

Dana said...

600 pages in awesome! Hope you are still enjoying all your books!

Valerie said...

Getting away from the house to read is a good idea! I've read less this readathon (its my second) but still having fun anyway! Enjoy the rest of the readathon.

I think Life As We Knew It is a perfect read-a-thon book. Enjoy!

I've read good things about Rosoff's book and I think I'll pick it up someday soon. Same with Life as We Knew It.

Enjoy the rest of the Read-a-Thon, Tricia!

Okay, I am soooo jealous of the checking into a hotel idea. That sounds soooo fun!
