 My answers to the End of Readthon Survey 

Which hour was most daunting for you? None really, I’ve done the Readathon for the past 3 years and have set my pace well. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalinithi 

For Trekkies: Star Trek The Next Generation Crossover or First Contact

Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next season?

Offer more swag, make the writing spaces on the printable bookmark bigger, they are way too small. 

What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?

Everything, it is always well organised and fun. 

How many books did you read? 7 and a quarter

What were the names of the books you read?

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button by F Scott Fitzgerald

When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalinithi

Star Trek Crossover by Michael Jan Friedman 

Star Trek First Contact by JM Dillard 

The Hospital (Mountain Man) by Keith C Blackmore

What She Knew by Gilly MacMillan

A Thousand Naked Strangers: A Paramedic’s Wild Ride To The Edge and Back by Kevin Hazzard

Which book did you enjoy most? Most of them – they were all different and enjoyable in their own way

Which did you enjoy least? The Curious Case of Benjamin Button- I felt a narrator who’s voice was annoying at times ruined an otherwise very good short story

How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? Very What role would you be likely to take next time? Reader and I would love to write a warm up or guest post!
