Another Read-a-thon has come to an end! As always, it was great! Here are my final stats:

  • Which hour was most daunting for you?

I needed a break around hour 7 and was done at hour 18

  • Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?

Anything by Rainbow Rowell.

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


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

The cheerleaders were fantastic!

    I’m super jealous that you have Landline already. I agree. All of Rainbow’s books would be great for the Read-a-thon.
