Read-A-Thon, Mid-Event Survey

Halfway there! Can I go the distance? Don't know! Have a terrible feeling I'm going to crash around two in the morning.
  1. What are you reading right now?  Nothing right now. I am taking a little break while I wait for The Husband to bring me vegetable lo mein.
  2. How many books have you read so far?  Seven graphic novels so far.
  3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon? The Ask & The Answer and Monsters of Men (Chaos Walking, Volumes Two and Three) -- don't expect to get through both of them, but you never know ...
  4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day? No, today was my day off and my parents are happy to go to the Connecticut Garlic Festival tomorrow, instead.
  5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?  Oh, The Husband and our cats have engaged in attention-seeking behavior, but kisses and belly rubs don't take up a lot of time. 
  6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far? How much I'm getting read, actually.  Last Read-A-Thon, I took a lot of unscheduled naps and didn't read nearly as much as I'd hoped!
  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? Select more varied titles -- many of my graphic novels are about WWI or WWII and, while well done, are grim going when read back-to-back.
  9. Are you getting tired yet?  Yes, but that is what pie and walkies are for.
  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? Don't look at the clock -- take your time and don't rush reading.
