Which hour was most daunting for you?

Hour 7 as it was past midnight in my part of the world.

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

Crime Fiction novels, me thinks!

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

Too few cheerleaders on my blog. I wish that to be changed.

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

Visit, visit, vist

Yes! And as a reader!

I agree, cheerleaders need to visit more, especially in waning hours of the read-a-thon; I had no comments after 1 am PT and thought nobody really cared; did have people read, but had no comments.

I had fewer cheerleaders this time around too.
