Which hour was most daunting for you?
We went for a walk at around 11pm last night. The moments leading up that were pretty difficult. In complete fairness, and in the interest of full-disclosure, we all needed to get a fair bit of sleep last night. This is Canada's Thanksgiving weekend, and we need to be in different places with family today.
Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
I'm really enjoying Stephen King's "On Writing." It's my second time reading it, and there's something incredibly warm and engaging in his voice. I would recommend it to anyone interested in writing, regardless of whether they like horror or not.
Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
I feel that having more engagement from the cheerleaders would have been nice.
What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
The challenges are nice. I wish I had the time to do the tea stain doodle challenge (can't remember what it's called). I enjoyed spending time with my friends.
How many books did you read?
I started and finished The Witches.
I started and am halfway through "Dark Companions" by Ramsey Campbell and "On Writing" by Stephen King.
What were the names of the books you read?
Which book did you enjoy most?
Which did you enjoy least?
No preference, really. They were all quite different, and they're all from writers I like. I chose them because they were sure thing.
If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
Well, I was only hit by one cheerleader during my experience, so I'm not seeing a lot of impact at the moment. Disappointing, to be honest.
How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
Pretty likely. Would probably just be a reader again. :)
