Read-a-thon Hour 14

To bad I didn’t see this a little while ago, I would have posted it then. Here it is none the less. It gave me a chance to move around for a few minutes and stretch my back and legs. :)

Mini-challenge

Mid-Event Survey:

1. What are you reading right now? Embers by Laura Bickle

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

3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon? The one I’m reading!

4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day? Not really, this came on a great day!

5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those? Just a few with family, but they were pretty understanding.

6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far? I’m actually kind of wishing that I had planned ahead more to contribute & participate w/ everyone else. My computer is too slow to try to read and comment and do challenges, I was getting frustrated and just had to go back to reading.

7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? I wish I had known more about how to contribute, but I think participating in it for the first time is the best way to really see how it all goes.

8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year? Next year I’ll probably read a lot less and cheerlead a lot instead. Maybe even try to host a challenge or something.

9. Are you getting tired yet? Yes, my migraine medicine, is putting me to sleep. That was not a good plan!

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? Don’t use a slow computer. :)

Slow compys suck :o( Sorry you're having to deal with one. I hope your migraine was at least averted if you had to take meds that make you sleepy! You can do it... You're doing a great job! Wooohooo! Rock that casbah!

(and you're the 5th Amanda in a row that I've been rooting for, btw, how fun!)

LOL Well thanks for the support! I fell asleep about 20 minutes after you wrote this though. :) I feel better today though, so it's all good.
