Wrap-up post for Dewey’s 24 fall readathon

So this happened. My hour nap turned into a full-on several hour sleep. I didn’t hear the alarm. Technically, the readathon started at 7 am yesterday and ended at 7 am today. I didn’t start until 10:30 am yesterday though, so in full disclosure I read until 10:30 am this morning. Thus technically, I missed the end of the readathon because I was asleep but in practicality I read for 24 hours.

Here are my numbers:

Total pages read: 836

Mean pages read: 35.96

Median pages read: 36 (I love when median and mean match!)

Total number of books read: 4 (2 print, 2 Kindle)

And here is my reading log. The huge spike in hour 14 represents a poetry book. So, take that with a grain of salt  🙂

There is always this fun exit interview that Dewey’s provides and of course I will answer those questions.

Which hour was most daunting for you?

This time I had no trouble during the actual reading. I however struggled with getting up on time (which didn’t happen) and waking up after a nap (which also didn’t happen).

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

The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories by Tim Burton

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

I enjoyed the twitter groups we had during the spring readathon. I don’t think they were present this time.

What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?

I am a big fan of the challenges and the facebook group. You guys rocked this!

Thank you so much to everyone who organized and participated in this fall readathon. You guys rock!

 

So long! Until the next Dewey’s readathon on  April 29, 2017.

 

ON A SIDE NOTE: I am super behind on my chapter write ups for the POPSUGAR reading challenge. It is daunting to think about. Guys, I am scared. I really want to stick with it!
