1. What are you reading right now? Bed. :)
2. How many books have you read so far? Working on number 2.
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon? There are way too many that I want to read! Probably Harry Potter or The Named or Delerium or Paranormalcy or Drop Shot???
4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day? No. I made lots of different plans, but am now ignoring my phone.
5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those? Yes, but none too bad. Lots of texts from The Romo encouraging me to keep reading and I had to go pick up a package in the office of my building, but that only took about five minutes. Been pretty on task, just tired. Note to sleep. Get a full night sleep for the next readathon.
6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far? Last year I loved the interaction, commenting, tweeting, texting, posting a blog every single hour. I'm surprised that I'm having just as much fun this year, even though I'm taking a totally different approach.
7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? Keep on being awesome!!!
8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year? Get a full night of sleep. For the entire week before this. We're halfway through, it's 4:30pm where I'm at. I shouldn't be tired. But I am.
9. Are you getting tired yet? No... why? Have I mentioned it? :p
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've been reading heavy action and heavy comedy. Later I'm going to read heavy action-comedyies. Also I'm going to do most of my reading sitting on a balance ball so I don't fall asleep. :)
Midnight Book Girl asked us to make a sentence using books we have on hand. This is mine:
|An Abundance of Katherines burn the dark and hollow places.|
I commented on the mini-challenge this hour, which asked us to choose a character from a book we've read today and give them a theme song. This is my response:
I'm reading Dancing In My Nuddy Pants by Lousie Rennison. The main character Georgia could have two theme songs. Just Dance by Lady Gaga, because she is always dancing and also kind of selfish and fun. Or Friday by Rebecca Black because Georgia would totally make her own music video that is that embarrassing. She did, after all, go to a party dressed as a stuffed olive.
