1. Which hour was most daunting for you?
When my husband got home around hour 11/12

The Young Merlin Trilogy by Jane Yolen was great. A light read with a fun story to keep you going for about 3 hours.

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

4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
I didn't do any of the mini challenges apart from the first and last as I got caught up in reading, but they always work really well and keep people focused.

5. How many books did you read?

6. What were the names of the books you read?
See above

7. Which book did you enjoy most?
I think Fairest of All was my favourite although to be honest I loved them all!

8. Which did you enjoy least?
None, they were all awesome.

9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?

10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
I can't remember if this was my third, fourth or fifth but I would definitely sign up for another one as a reader.
