What are you reading right now? Still reading Strange Angels by Lili St.Crow (which is awesome and so much sadder than I expected) Have about 100 pages left till the end.
How many books have you read so far? Alas, zero. I did get a fair bit of my course-related non-fiction read though… just not a whole book!
What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon? PERFECT CHEMISTRY BY SIMONE ELKELES! Whoot!
Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day? I lied and told people I have studying to do. But isn’t a lie in the name of literature a good this?
Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those? Not so well. I have given in to telephone calls and dinner invites… everyone thinks they are doing me a favour, taking me away from my work… guess my lie wasn’t the best idea after all!
What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far? How quickly the hours go! Especially when it comes to challenges. I made posts for two and then missed the deadline… *grumbles*
Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? Please, oh please, post links to the main blog updates on twitter. *puppy eyes*
What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year? Lots, probably. Like stacking up on digestive biscuits…. which are surprisingly yummy.
Are you getting tired yet? Nope! But I’m a night owl, and had a late start anyways.
Do you have any tips for other Readers or Cheerleaders, something you think is working well for you that others may not have discovered? A good soundtrack, people! Having music on can fill up a room – and seems to stop me from getting distracted by the words on the page. If you are a skeptic, start with instrumental music first. A soundtrack you love, maybe? See how it goes!
