I read about Dewey's Read-A-Thon at Julia's blog yesterday and spontaneously decided to participate.
- Which hour was most daunting for you?
I went to sleep at 3 a.m. because my whole body was shaking and needed rest.
- Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
Every book from Henning Mankell I've read so far - especially the ones involving the character Kurt Wallander.
- Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
I can think of none at the moment...
- What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
Everyone was motivated and kept motivating others, too.
- How many books did you read?
I finished three and a half.
- What were the names of the books you read?
Dogs of Riga, Faceless Killers and Kennedy's Brain, all of them by Henning Mankell. And Nothing by Janne Teller.
- Which book did you enjoy most?
Dogs of Riga and Faceless Killers. They were brilliant.
- Which did you enjoy least?
By far Janne Teller's Nothing. It has won many prizes but I can't see why.
- How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
I would love to take part in another Read-a-thon if I can afford the time! I'll probably take part as e reader again.
|Okay guys, I'm done!|

- Tell us a little something about yourself!I'm in my first year at university. I love reading, but often don't know how to fit it into my day. Also, I love drawing but same problem here. Some people would label me with "goth" or "metal" - but really, I'm just myself and I don't think any label fits me. ;)
- If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to?This is actually my first read-a-thon. I'm especially looking forward to 24 hours which are exclusively reserved for reading. And I am excited to see what it'll be like! :)
