So much fun! I really love doing these I did a huge dent in my tbr pile. Now I'm recovering and getting ready to go to a Tea with author Gail Carriager!

Hey everyone I'm halfway through doing OK here is the Mid event survey :)

1. What are you reading right now?
The Dead by Charlie Higson,

2. How many books have you read so far?

3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?
I don't know maybe the witches of east end

4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day?
yes I had the day off because of an event but then had a dental problem and had to cancel :( so Ive been home all day

5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?

6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
I won a prize! I picked a four book pack by Gregory MacDonald which is cool since Ive wanted to read him for a while

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

8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this
again next year?

nothing different, Ive hosted and cheer leaded in the past might do that again next time

9. Are you getting tired yet?
a little

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?

Just being patient and don't be too hard on yourselves this is the most productive readathon for me so far but sometimes I've done a lot less.

I think not being hard on yourself is good advice. If you are sleepy take a nap, if you are bored, do something else for a little while. It's all about the fun, so if you aren't having fun, change it up! :D Hope you are enjoying the rest of your readathon!
