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
- 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!
- 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!
- Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next season?
It worked really well I think.
- 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!
- How many books did you read?
- What were the names of the books you read?
– Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov (65%-100%, Kindle)
– Ghost World by Daniel Clowes (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)
- Which book did you enjoy most?
The Marvels – it was beautiful in art and story.
- Which did you enjoy least?
Lolita – I really didn’t like the characters.
- 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?
