Moving on to book #4, which was actually book #3 until I I had to go out for a few hours and I realized my battery would die on my phone, so I detoured to the library to pick up a book to tide me over until I got home again.
Crossing the finish line - while I won't go so far as to say I stayed awake the full 24 hours, I came close. I power-napped to an audio book from about 1:30-3am, then finished off Juliet, Naked just before 5am.
Closing Survey!1. Which hour was most daunting for you? - Probably the first. I am not a person that does well waking up at 5am.
2. Tell us ALLLLL the books you read! Still Life by Louise Penny, The Soul of America by Jon Meacham, The Comforts of a Muddy Saturday by Alexander McCall Smith, Juliet, Naked by Nick Hornby. I also read a few pages of Russka by Edward Rutherfurd on my phone while I was walking to the voting station, until the battery started to die, and I powernapped to The Rogue Prince by GRRM.
3. Which books would you recommend to other Read-a-thoners? The Comforts of a Muddy Saturday - or really anything by Alexander McCall Smith. It's a gentle and fast read, so you get the satisfaction of finishing a book fairly easily, while being soothed.
4. What’s a really rad thing we could do during the next Read-a-thon that would make you happy? Just having them makes me happy.
5. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? Would you be interested in volunteering to help organize and prep? I'll definitely participate again. I'm too overloaded to help with organizing at the moment, but if they're still going on when I'm closer to retirement (or at least down to one job)...
