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?
    7
  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?
