  1. Read-A-Thon Update: Hour 12

    Sunday, April 11, 2010

    So, I may have, erm, accidentally fallen asleep. For ten whole hours. I was going to stay up until at least 1AM and sleep until 6 or 7AM but I guess my tired brain had other plans. Instead I managed to doze off while reading around eleven o'clock - only one hour in to the Read-A-Thon. I do think that I can still catch up. I am a third of the way through the first Harry Potter book and I don't see why it should take more than two hours to finish the rest. Maybe I can push for one hour?

    Okay, so to get back in to the groove of things, I am going to take part in the mid-event meme - a survey!

    1. What are you reading right now?
    Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

    2. How many books have you read so far?  
    Just this one! T_T

    3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon? 
    Getting a start on the Harry Potter Reading Challenge is a pretty good highlight for me.

    4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day? 
    Nope. No work for me on Sundays so I was good to go.

    5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?  
    Falling asleep for ten hours. I'm going to read like I have never read before! After I have had some breakfast that is.

    6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far? 
    I've slept through any surprises that could have happened!

    7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? 
    None as of yet. Darn sleep. It looks like everything has been handled really well, though.

    8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year?
    Have a nap before the event starts.

    9. Are you getting tired yet? 
    Noooo. I feel wonderfully refreshed after that sleep, thanks for asking.

    10. Do you have any tips for other Readers or Cheerleaders, something you think is working well for you that others may not have discovered?
    Read somewhere comfortable but no so comfortable that you will doze off! The comments from Cheerleaders have definitely been motivating too!

      Sleep is good!

      Readers rule
      Readers rock
      As the hour grows late
      I wouldn’t be reading any John Locke

      Sometimes sleep overtakes! Oh well, hope you get lots of reading in now that you are awake.

      I did more snoozing than I would have liked, but sometimes I guess our bodies need it. I love HP--I hope you enjoyed your reading!
