Final meme

1. Which hour was most daunting for you?

Hour 11- 12 (which was about 5.30 – 6.30 AM here)

2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?

All the books were pretty gripping.. considering Shantaram is already a well-read book.. Chances of a lifetime, though belonging to a diff genre altogether, is pretty fixating

3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?

None as such.. I loved every aspect of it..

4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?

The cheer-leaders and their enthusiasm really kept everything alive.

5. How many books did you read?

5

6. What were the names of the books you read?

Shantaram, Liar’s Poker, Chances of a lifetime, Bobby Fischer goes to war, Story of my life-Hellen Keller

7. Which book did you enjoy most?

Shantaram

8. Which did you enjoy least?

Story of my life… I guess I was just not in the mood

9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?

Not really…

10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?

I will for sure.. there is no way I can let go off this excitement :)… I will be reader for sure.. will think of putting in a mini-challenge too
