In less than an hour the Readathon will be over, so now is the time to fill out the final survey – I slept during mid-event survey, so sorry 😀
- Which hour was most daunting for you? That would be hours 11 – 18, the ones in which I slept – more or less. I was up every two hours, not by choice, and therefore they made me even more tired. But that’s nothing a good chocolate cappuccino can’t cure, is it?
- Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? Oh, how should I know? Personally I’m looking forward to the next issue of ‚Ghostsitter‘ by Tommy Krappweis, but that’s not out by now. And I hope I finally make it to reading the mortal instruments series and of course ‚A song of ice and fire‘.
- Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next season? My last suggestion (not that many challenges with ‚US only‘-prizes) obviously was accepted, so I’m happy. I missed the cheerleaders a bit, but that’s okay.
- What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? There was nothing that didn’t work well.
- How many books did you read? Only 3. And 3 fanfictions. A total of 544 pages. Which is about 5 times my daily average, so it was a success, I guess. (Plus the pages in book #4, I started half an hour ago.)
- What were the names of the books you read?
Bernd Perplies, Christian Humberg – Die unheimlichen Fälle des Lucius Adler. Der goldene Machtkristall
Der Tod – Mein Leben als Tod
Verschiedene Autoren – Das kleine Teddybuch
And currently reading: Ransom Riggs – Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children
- Which book did you enjoy most? Lucius Adler. The rest was so-so, but Lucius Adler was fun.
- Which did you enjoy least? Mein Leben als Tod (My life as Death). The author is good as a comedian, but the book was rather boring.
- How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? If I have the time, I will do this again. As a reader. Being a co-host would be interesting as well, but I don’t know anyone I could ask for sponsoring prizes and I myself am not exactly a millionaire … But it would be cool. Because I would make a challenge a bit more international. Forcing readers to think outside their own country.
Thank you all for staying with me, reading with me and the Dewey’s team for putting up the event. Until next time!
