1. What are you reading right now? – I’ve gone back to reading stories from Free Speculative Fiction Online
2. How many books have you read so far? – 13 short stories (and it should be noted that some of them were VERY short), almost feels like I’m cheating by reading short stories.
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon? – see above – reading short stories from a web site…
4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day? – Nope
5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those? – Yes, a few like errands that needed doing or eating, just did them and came back to reading more short stories.
6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far? – Nothing really.
7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? – Nope
8. What would you do differently, as a Reader, if you were to do this again next year? – Probably have a better plan of things to read – more than just a web site with short stories. I don’t know that I’d want to read a full length novel since I get bored reading one thing for long periods of time, unless I love the book.
9. Are you getting tired yet? yes but it’s the normal end of the day tired and the fact that I’m way to much of a morning person! I will probably go to bed at 10pm and then get up at 5am to finish the last 3 hours of the read-a-thon. I actually wish it had started earlier in the morning for me!
10. Do you have any tips for other Readers, something you think is working well for you that others may not have discovered? – Short stories are probably the way to go if you get bored reading one thing, but try to vary the location of them or have a set plan of what you’re going to read.
