Read-a-thon, the second half!!

October 23, 2011 read-a-thon 2

 I had no idea how hard it would be to do this and be at a social event with my husband.  We had a very delicious formal dinner this evening, taking up 3 long hours.  I’ve now had plenty of wine.  I have been able to be an awesome cheerleader…ahem, because it was easier to quickly visit a few blogs than get some quiet quality time in this afternoon to read.  Given a few minutes to quietly lie still my hubs will be asleep soonish.  We’ve decided to get up early and go home to meet our kids for breakfast before Caitie heads back to UNF.  
I’m updating with this anyway. 

Mid-Event Survey:
1. What are you reading right now?  Looking for Salvation at The Dairy Queen by Susan Gregg Gilmore
2. How many books have you read so far? one
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon? The one I am just beginning
4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day?I thought I had it better planned out.  Lessons to learn.
5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?I’ve had to many obligations and I did use those interruptions to cheer and blog hop.
6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?How much others are reading!!
7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year?I’m going to plan to read only, and be at home, with my goals stated and my schedule cleared.
9. Are you getting tired yet?no
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 was only visited by 2 cheerleaders in 13 hours, I think that’s kind of slim, but I don’t know.

    I’ve done four readathons and they never work out like you plan. Never. The only thing I keep telling myself is that I normally read one print book a week so I am ahead of the norm. At least you are at Disney and are being waited on!
