The end of the readathon for another time. It's been a strange one for me this time around. I was so antisocial and while I read a couple of posts, I didn't comment on a single blog or do any of the mini challenges apart from the first and last meme's. I think it's due to feeling so rough with sinusitis again that made me just hole up by myself and read in between naps and cat cuddles. Hopefully next time I will be much more sociable and get more involved as that's one of the big draws to doing it with so many other people around the world.
1. Which hour was most daunting for you?
2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
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?
5. How many books did you read?
6. What were the names of the books you read?
7. Which book did you enjoy most?
8. Which did you enjoy least?
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?
Morning all! I did go to bed in the middle for a while (I went to bed around 2am and got up at just before 8am again) but have been back up and reading for the last 2 hours or so. I just finished a three in one manga which was pretty gruesome - I Luv Halloween Ultimate Twisted Edition and am wondering what to start next. I have two hours left on an audiobook which I might finish or maybe start something completely new.
It's now 00:40 here in the UK and I still feeling terrible but have just finished my second book. So far I have read Graveminder by Melissa Marr which was fantastic and I just completed Tooth and Claw by Jo Walton which I also really enjoyed. I'm debating whether to go to bed properly for a bit and see if I feel any better after a proper sleep, or if I should carry on and see if I can sweat out the rest of this flu thing. Either way, I hope everyone is reading books they love as much as I have been and is having fun :)

This has been a bit of a fail readathon wise so far annoyingly. I read for the first few hours and then fell asleep despite it being around 4pm here in London. I woke up with a splitting headache so I've taken a bunch of paracetamol and made some dinner in the hopes it perks me up a bit. I hate being sick and hopefully this weekend will be the last of it.
2)Three random facts about me…
3)How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?
4)Do you have any goals for the read-a-thon (i.e. number of books, number of pages, number of hours, or number of comments on blogs)?
5)If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time?
