1. What are you reading right now?
I am still working on Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me by Mindy Kaling. I can already say for certain that everyone needs to read this book. She’s hilarious!
2. How many books have you read so far?
I have read two books from start to finish. I’m about halfway through my current read, so I guess 2.5 books.
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?
I am looking forward to being home for the rest of the night. I distracted myself with friend time for two hours earlier, so I’m ready to finish out the second half strong with fewer distractions, though good ones.
4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day?
I had to turn down a couple invitations. The friend time wasn’t planned, but a girl has to eat.
5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
See above. I clearly succumbed.
6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
I’m just shocked by how many people are participating, but it’s a good shock. I’ve done readathons before, so nothing else has really surprised me.
7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
No suggestions. It’s fabulous, dahlin’.
8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year?
DO NOT SUCCUMB TO FRIEND TIME. THEY WILL BE THERE TOMORROW.
9. Are you getting tired yet?
I was a little earlier, but the break helped.
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?
Pace yourself. I think a lot of people find it to be a reading race, even if they don’t realize it. It doesn’t matter if you get one book or fifteen books read as long as you had fun.
That’s all I have for now! You can find me on Twitter (@lostgenreader) for more random updates.
Happy reading! Stay excellent!
