Closing Survey

Which hour was most daunting for you? I slept for hours 21, 22, and 23 as usual.  One of these times, I'll make it all the way!
Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? For the first time, I had graphic novels in my stack which worked really well for when I was tired.
Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? No!
What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?  Again, I loved the cheerleaders spreadsheets. They make it really easy to visit a lot of people.
How many books did you read? 1 whole book and part of 3 others
What were the names of the books you read? Jacob Have I Loved, The Martian (almost finished), 1/2 of March: Book Two, and part of The Bronze Bow
Which book did you enjoy most? Was really enjoying The Martian, but didn't quite get it finished
Which did you enjoy least?  Jacob Have I Loved - I liked it, but didn't love it
If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?  Nope
How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? There's no question I'll be back.  Likely to read and cheer again.

Thanks to everyone who visited me, the fabulous hosts, co-hosts, and mini-challengers.  It was a blast! A special shout-out to my intrepid RAT pal, Laura, from Pleasepardontheinterruption.blogspot.com. It just wouldn't be the same without you!
