1. Which hour was most daunting for you? 
I started getting tired around Midnight.  That is a couple hours after my normal bed time.  Everything was dark and my eyes were already tired from reading throughout the day and even drinking iced tea wasn’t doing anything for me.  I decided to finally go to bed with the intent of getting up in a couple of hours, but lo and behold, I didn’t even wake up until 8 AM.  UGH!!

2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
Well, this is a hard question since tastes are so different, but here are some suggestions.  I didn’t read this for the read-a-thon since I’ve already read it, but for someone needing an entertaining book I’d try FREAK SHOW by James St. James.  This book is hysterical.  It will keep your attention.

3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
I think everything worked great.  I just seemed to me that if I stayed on the computer to participate in a mini-challenge and visiting other readers and cheerleaders I lost most of that hour’s reading time.   Still, don’t change it…I loved the mini-challenges.  I just need to be more disciplined and get off the computer right away.

4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
I think the Cheerleaders did a great job.  It was so motivating to have comments come in randomly throughout the event. 

5. How many books did you read?
I read 3 books.

6. What were the names of the books you read?
ZOMBIE BLONDES by Brian James
THE COFFIN CLUB: VAMPIRE KISSES 5 by Ellen Schreiber
PENDRAGON: MERCHANT OF DEATH (Graphic Novel) by D.J. MacHale
I’ll be posting the reviews for all three soon.

7. Which book did you enjoy most?
I enjoyed ZOMBIE BLONDES the most.  It was a nice horror novel set in a high school setting.  What is more scary than zombie cheerleaders huh???

8. Which did you enjoy least?
PENDRAGON: MERCHANT OF DEATH the graphic novel is the one I enjoyed the least.  I like graphic novels, but I don’t get as much enjoyment out of them as I do a traditional book.

9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
N/A

10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
I would love to participate in the Read-A-Thon again.  I can’t wait.  I will be a reader again I think.  I love the Cheerleaders, but I think I’d want to spend my time reading instead of being on the computer the whole day.
