Readathon Midway Point

Oh my word, I’ve last this long with several irritating interruptions.

1. What are you reading right now?
Persepolis by Majori Strapi
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?
Stitches by David Small
4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day?
Yeah, I got a new job so I wouldn’t have to work weekends
5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
Yes. I have had to dog-sit today. OH MY GOD. First the damn dogs run after a bird and jump through the fence into a cornfield, so I had to set down my book and run screaming after them. Then they left me a huge present outside. THEN I go inside after “tiring” them out, and the big one starts barking in my face for half an hour and I couldn’t figure out why… turns out he wanted food.
6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
That I won something, lol
7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
More readers of the hour
8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year?
No dogs
9. Are you getting tired yet?
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?
Read manga, it takes a short amount of time to read and will give you confidence

Into The Land Of Unicorns by Bruce Coville

    Happy Halfway there!

    I was hypnotized by Persepolis! I read it on a plane and it was possibly the fastest flight I've ever been on!

    Keep it up.

    Love the Vlogs.
