Readathon April 2016: Hours 23 & 24 End of Event Survey

I have just finished reading Book #7 – Sally Heathcote: Suffragette by Mary M Talbot, Kate Charlesworth and Bryan Talbot.

I will start another book, but I think this is my last of the official Readathon.

End of Event Survey
  1. Which hour was most daunting for you?
    I didn’t find any of it daunting really, as I had a nice 8 hour sleep in the middle!
  2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
    I think graphic novels are so great to get through. They are easier on the eyes, boost your confidence and give you a break from walls of text.
    I also recommend The Marvels as it is over 650 pages but is part graphic novel too so you get a huge boost in less time than reading a full 650 page novel!
  3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next season?
    It worked really well I think.
  4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
    The sense of community was great! The Facebook group made the build up so exciting!
  5. How many books did you read?
  6. What were the names of the books you read?
    – Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov (65%-100%, Kindle)
    – Ghost World by Daniel Clowes (Paperback)
    – The Marvels by Brian Selznick (Hardback)
    – Dead Man Talking by Roddy Doyle (Paperback)
    – My Naughty Little Sister by Dorothy Edwards (Paperback)
    – The Man Who Folded Himself by David Gerrold (Kindle)
    – Sally Heathcote: Suffragette by Mary M Talbot, Kate Charlesworth and Bryan Talbot (Hardback)
  7. Which book did you enjoy most?
    The Marvels – it was beautiful in art and story.
  8. Which did you enjoy least?
    Lolita – I really didn’t like the characters.
  9. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
    I am definitely going to be a reader next time. I may donate some prizes too. Who knows?
