Abducted by The End Is Hear - Readathon 2012 totally crashed last night!

I was talking to my friend Kim, then I got off the phone and fell asleep for just like 45 minutes, then I woke up and realized that my friend Kate was getting ready to host the sentence challenge over at her blog and so I started trying to figure out what my sentence was going to be and right as I was thinking up a really good one, I passed out!

Even though I missed my chance to participate, Kate, here is my sentence using just book titles...

It reads "Never let me go one day without you into the wild."

At the time that I was trying to think it up, the challenge hadn't technically started yet and I couldn't remember if I had to use more then three books or not. So I had the part that said "Never let me go one day without you..." but I was trying to work out how to add another book in there when my eyelids became very heavy and that was the last thing I remember.

Anyway, here are my answers for the end of Readathon

A Readathon tradition! In your final Readathon post, answer these questions and then link to it with the Mr. Linky, below.

  1. Which hour was most daunting for you? That would be around midnight, so that would make it hour 17 I think
  2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? I really did love reading my Odd Thomas books. I think I will stick to novellas and graphic novels in the future because the paste is so much faster you rarely feel bogged down by any boring parts. 
  3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? Honestly, my only complaint was that I felt like there weren't enough cheerleaders. But here is the thing, Did I sign up to cheerlead? Nope, I sure didn't! So I have no right to complain if I didn't sign up to do the job myself. I think next year I am definitely going to sign up for a cheerleading slot so I can spread the love too!
  4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? As far as the Read-a-thon itself I would say the challenges were awesome this year! But for me personally I would say the best things I did was kick starting readathon at IHOP because it helped me to get straight to reading and using novellas and graphic novels as my reading material. 
  5. How many books did you read? I only finished one novella and about 80% of a second one and 60% of a graphic novella. 
  6. What were the names of the books you read? Odd Interlude #1 was the one that I finished. Odd Interlude #2 was the one I almost finished and In Odd We Trust was the graphic novel. 
  7. Which book did you enjoy most? I was really enjoying Odd Interlude #2 so I guess that one. I can't wait to finish it later today!
  8. Which did you enjoy least? I don't really have one! I loved the books that I was spending my day with. But I guess if I said I liked Interlude #2 the most then I guess that would make Interlude #1 the one I liked the least by default. 
  9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? Nope, but I can't wait to read the advice of others to help me prepare for next spring!
  10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? Mucho Extremo Likely!!! I love Readathon and I think I would always participate. Some years will be more productive then others, but I think I would always give it a shot!

Bummer you fell asleep! Your phone call woke me up, but I didn't really read much.

I was a cheerleader and I think it would be awesome if you did it next time too! I had a great time visiting other blogs!

Kate @Midnight Book Girl said...

Your sentence is awesome, like you! And April's readathon is going to be amazing!

You're right! I didn't see any cheerleaders this year! I tried to focus on reading though, so I wasn't online all that much.

Katie Pomroy said...

I love your sentence challenge! Sounds like you did a great job! :)

Andrea @ The Overstuffed Bookcase said...

Yeah, I need to stick to the shorter books and graphic novels next time, too.

Great job! And that's a great sentence! I think I used Never Let Me Go last year. It's a good start to a sentence! ;)

I think I'm going to try to be a cheerleader next time, too. That is, as long as I'm not having to read review books...
