There's A Book

ReadathonbuttonlgMid-Event Survey:

1. What are you reading right now?
The Heart Is Not A Size by Beth Kephart
2. How many books have you read so far?
One, total…I’ve been doing more cheering than reading.
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?
13 Treasures by Michelle Harrison and Where Teddy Bears Come From by Mark Burgess Illustrated by Russell Ayto (with the kiddos)
4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day?
I tried, but we are visiting family and I’m doing more visiting and cheering than reading. Still having a blast though!
5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
Yep, just deal with it and try to jump right back into what I was doing.
6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
How little I’ve been able to read, but that’s not that big of a surprise…really.
7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
Nope, loving it so far. Most of the improvements would be for me personally and not the read-a-thon itself.
8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year?
Set up in advance more by myself time. Even go as far as set up things for kiddos and hubby to do. Although I have been reading with the kiddos off and on.
9. Are you getting tired yet?
Nope…getting ready to get going for more!
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?
Enjoy it! Have fun and take breaks. Get to know some of the other participants too, you may just find a new great friend!
Back to Cheerleading! I can’t wait to see what everyone has been up to!
