Read-A-Thon update: halfway through!

It’s already time for the Mid-Event Survey!

1. What are you reading right now?
Me: Neil Gaiman, Smoke and Mirrors.
Husband: David Gemmell, Knights of Dark Renown.
2. How many books have you read so far?
Me: 3
Husband: 2
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?
Me: At the moment I’m sleepy, and some graphic novels would do fine.
Husband: Arto Paasilinna’s The Year of the Hare.
4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day?
Me: not really, on weekends we’re pretty on our own.
Husband: No, at the moment we are quite free at weekends.
5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
Me: not even one, at the moment almost nobody knows we’re back, and those who know are too far to interrupt.
Husband: No interruption at all, luckily.
6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
Me: being sleepy already.
Husband: Not being very tired yet.
7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
Me: I’m all for less mini-challenges and more visiting each other’s blogs.
Husband: Dunno.
8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year?
Me: I would try to organize things better at home (meals and such).
Husband: I’ll think about that next year. 🙂
9. Are you getting tired yet?
Me: definitely!
Husband: Not so much.
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?
Me: can’t think of one right now…
Husband: Me neither.

  1. I’m not so good at clever cheers – just keep on reading, and we’ll be here (to keep you motivated – yeah!)

    Looks like you’re doing great – and we’re past the halfway point now :-).

    Happy Readathon!
