Summing up the readathon

I was cheerleading, and had a lot of fun. I managed to get to most blogs a couple of times; I hope that was enough. :)
Here are the post-event survey questions:
1. Which hour was most daunting for you?
Well, I didn't really spend hours cheerleading, so nothing was too daunting. :)

2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
Un Lun Dun, by China Mieville; The Diving Bell and the Butterfly (short non-fiction) by Jean-Dominique Bauby; Momo by Michael Ende; Star Trek novelisations; The Black Jewels trilogy by Anne Bishop; anything by James Patterson (short chapters)

3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
Nope, and I'm in awe of the organisers for doing such a great job.
4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
Renay's feeds really helped; especially for someone as technologically challenged as me. :)
5. How many books did you read?
I was cheerleading, so none for the readathon. I started On, Off by Colleen McCullough for the Orbus Terrarum challenge though. :)

6. What were the names of the books you read?
N/A _ see above
7. Which book did you enjoy most?

8. Which did you enjoy least?

9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
Just keep the enthusiasm going. Also, I had Renay's list open in two windows, and when I did my commenting-sprees, I started one from the top of the list and one from the bottom, so it went a bit quicker.

10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
I'd love to be a reader next time, but don't know if that will happen. I'd definitely cheerlead again.

You did a great job! I like your idea of having two windows with the list opened. You were so organized! I was all over the place, lol. But next time I'll know.
