Dewey's Read-a-Thon...Hour 12

Hour 12...the mid-way point...woot woot!!! And how I LURVE The All-American Rejects!!!

Now time for the little Q&A...

1. What are you reading right now?
Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder
2. How many books have you read so far?
Just one : (
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?
Well, I've been looking forward to the book I'm reading now. It's been on my TBR pile for too long.
4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day?
Nope. Although I kind of forgot the read-a-thon was today. So it's a good thing I had no plans this weekend other than to watch the Phillies game...and thankfully they're not playing today : )
5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
No interruptions...yay!!!
6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
How many people are cheering me on. Last time, I was a cheerleader and not many people stopped by my blog. But this time...I feel the lurve!!!
7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
I have no complaints...things seem to go smoothly...keep it up Dewey crew!!!
8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year?
I'll definitely make sure I mark it on my white board so I don't forget.
9. Are you getting tired yet?
I'm not tired anymore...I woke up an hour ago...I'm feeling grrreat!!!
10. Do you have any tips for other Readers or Cheerleaders, something you think is working well for you that others may not have discovered?
I have no huge tips...just do your own thing and take your time. Don't feel rushed to finish a certain amount of books. You're doing fine as long as your reading and enjoying yourself!

  1. I've got my tea in hand :-)

    I've traveled the world twice over,
    Met the famous; saints and sinners,
    Poets and artists, kings and queens,
    Old stars and hopeful beginners,
    I've been where no-one's been before,
    Learned secrets from writers and cooks
    All with one library ticket
    To the wonderful world of books.
