Readathon: Hour 12

Here's my mid-point survey questionnaire

Mid-Event Survey:
1. What are you reading right now?
Sue Monk Kidd's When the Heart Waits

2. How many books have you read so far?
I've only finished one: Douglas Coupland's All Families are Psychotic

3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?
David Sedaris, When You Are Engulfed in Flames

4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day?
Not really, but I've not been reading the entire day- I didn't do the 5am wake up, because I can't afford to screw up my sleep schedule, nor can I give all of Sunday over to recuperating.

5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
Not many- my mom called, but she called while I was eating lunch, and I blogged while we were talking.

6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
It's actually much more fun than I thought. I figured it would be sort of fun, but it's really fun!

7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
Not yet.

8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year? I'd start with a shorter book.

9. Are you getting tired yet? Not yet, but I didn't do the 5am wake up.

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? Not yet.

I have When You Are Engulfed In Flames set aside for if I get tired, it seems like a great book to get me going again.

You're doing great, happy half-time :)
