Update Meme!

My mid-event survey is a bit late as this is hour 20 but here it is!!

1. I'm reading This is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper

2. I've read three different books and finished one.

3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon? Since I'm a little late with this update I'll chase say that I didn't plan what I was going to read when I chose the books that I felt like reading when I needed a break from whatever I was reading at the time!

4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day?
I was fortunate in that I didn't have to make any special arrangements for any part of the read-a-thon.

5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those? I have had many cat interruptions today. The weather has been very rainy today so the cats cannot go out and play. They are inside and in need of entertainment and they make it mine and my husbands job to provide it! So I have had to take time out from reading periodically. But I all my cats so that's how it works!

6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far? The time management or managing how long to stay on-line at breaks, how long to take for the challenges etc. It all eats into my reading time. It's fun to visit other reader's blogs and participate in the challenges but I didn't realize how much time it takes away from reading!

7. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year? I think I might just visit other blogs on my breaks and not take time for challenges. I also have to find out how to pre-schedule posts, updates because I didn't update as much as I wanted to.

8. Are you getting tired yet? I'm definitely tired! I'm not sure how much longer I'll make it!

Good luck to all the Read-a-Thon readers! Have fun & Happy Reading!


  1. You've done a great job! Keep it up and enjoy the rest of your reading. The end is near!

  2. Good going! I don't think I could do that -- my vision would suffer!

  3. I'm so impressed that you made it to hour 20. Way to go!

  4. This sounds so intriguing, I wish you well in it - reading as sport, who would have thunk it?


  5. Congrats on a job well done! And I think your strategy of just picking up what you want to read and not preplanning may be the ticket to less stress during the Read-A-Thon! I got it in my head I had to read what I said I would and then I ended up reading "The Chosen," which was a bit to heavy and gave me a headache! : )

    And I know what you mean about how long to stay online -- the fun challenges were so tempting!
