Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon Wrap Up

Yes, this is about a week late. ^^;

I checked out the mini-challenges and had hoped to participate in more (then I fell asleep instead). I ended up participating in exactly ONE mini-challenge.... and I won. O_O
I never expected to, but the challenge was pretty fun. (You had to guess the book title based on a one star review.)

I freely admit, I was not prepared. I didn't think to look stuff up until a few hours after it started and ... wow. This thing is intense and full of activities.

I started the day being thrown off by some home stuff. 
The short version is that I was supposed to have the house (basically) to myself for the pretty much the whole day and night and... that didn't happen. :( I did end up getting my alone time, but my mind was all over the place and I allowed myself to get distracted. When I did settle down to read, I ended up falling asleep.

I did love the event and how encouraging and wonderful people were to one another. 
I can not wait for the next one in April! 
I will be much more prepared (hopefully) next time.

1. Which hour was most daunting for you?
All of them. I had no idea what I was doing.

2. Tell us ALLLLL the books you read!
Trail of Lightning - Rebecca Roanhorse. But I didn't finish it. It's good, but I've been tired and kept falling asleep.

3. Which book would you recommend to Readathoners?
I have no clue. Maybe start with some short stories or novellas to get into the groove. Save the bigger ones for later.

4. What’s a really rad thing we could do during the next Read-a-thon that would make you happy?
Is there a prep class to do for newcomers? LOLOLOLOL 
Seriously, nothing. This has been going on for so long and I feel like you guys have a handle on it.

5. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? Would you be interested in volunteering to help organize and prep?
Definitely! Now that I know how it is, I hope to sort of plan it out a little bit. Try to participate in some of the hourly stuff and what not.
Ummmmm I think I'm terribly underqualified to assist in prepping.
