Mid Event Meme

Wow- Its hard to believe that its been 12 hours already!  Here is my progress: 
7pm read 2 hours (total 10 hours)
finished  Nightshade, Jenny Pox for myself and read Goodnight Moon 123, Snip Snap, and Fairy Tales Disney style to my daughter
Mid-Event Survey:
1. What are you reading right now? The Duff
2. How many books have you read so far? 2 adult, 3 kids
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon? The Duff
4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day? Not really- daughter is running around, so is hubby
5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those? My daughter- read to her, play for a few minutes and go back to reading
6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far? page hits
7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? no
8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year? get a baby-sitter :)
9. Are you getting tired yet? yes
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? take a break at each hour to post, and eat or stretch if needed


  1. Let's go
    Let's go, chip in, it's time to cheer,
    It's simple, yell what you hear,
    Go Reader Go,
    Go Reader Go,
    Fire up and scream,
    Read Read!

    You're doing a great job!! And yes, definitely move around after a bit to keep from getting too tired. :)

  2. I remember when my first child was a toddler she would have a fit as soon as I put a book in my hands. Luckily, she's 16 now!
    I hope you enjoy your reading!

  3. Thanks for visiting my site. Have fun hoppin. Tea!!!!!

  4. You're doing great! Keep up the good work.

    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.
