Read-a-Thon: Hour 12

I'm chugging along! I just returned from the grocery store, where I went for some much-needed provisions. I picked up a salad for lunch, and if I'm a good girl and finish it, I also got an M&M cookie.

In any case, here's my mid-event meme:

Mid-Event Survey:
1. What are you reading right now?
I had to put down the competitive eating book to read lunch, as it's just too gross. I'm going to start on Lydia Cassat Reading the Morning Paper instead.

2. How many books have you read so far? Finished 2, started a third.

3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon? A Nancy Drew, yet to be determined.

4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day? I skipped my figure skating lesson- I am a bad girl.

5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
Only of my own making (see naptime)

6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
That I actually got up at 5am!

7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
It would be fun to have more themed-reading challenges, like read a certain kind of book during this hour.

8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year?
Stock up on the ice cream ahead of time.

9. Are you getting tired yet?
That's what the nap was for.

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?
See ice cream, above. You may think you won't need it, but trust me, you will.

Oh Nancy Drew: what fun! Enjoy!
