Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon finishing post

End of Event Meme:

Which hour was most daunting for you?

As I live in India, my start up time is around 6 PM. Saturdays are working for me so in a way it is the end of the day for me. I also have to do the household chores. I do manage to read for three hours. I find difficult to stay awake after 11 30 PM.

Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?

Go for Historical romances. Those keep one riveted.

Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?

I like the Read-a-thon the way it is.

What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?

Cheerleaders? I don't know. I did a start up post and now doing this finishing post. I did not do any mini challenges. In fact, I stayed away from my laptop.

How many books did you read?

I read 4. 5 books. Three and half  romances, one poetry. 

What were the names of the books you read?

Bought: One Husband by Diana Hamilton
The Prospective Wife by Kim Lawrence
Bedded by the Billionaire by Leanne Banks 

The Robot Scientist's Daughter by Jeannine Hall Gailey....poetry

Which book did you enjoy most?

The Robot Scientist's Daughter by Jeannine Hall Gailey....poetry

Which did you enjoy least?

Bought: One Husband by Diana Hamilton

If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?

They did they job pretty well..

How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?

Wow that would have been hard starting after a working day, so congrats! You also did really well with the number of books your read.

You did great. I agree, after 11:30pm, it is hard for me to stay awake as well.

I find it difficult to stay awake after 11, too. You did very well. That's a lot of books read!

It would be hard to start that late in the evening, but I'm glad you had a successful Readathon anyway!

You did great! I also went to sleep in the middle of the challenge. It started 3 pm here.

I was hoping to get to a romance this year but I ran out of time! Great read-a-thon!
