Read-a-thon: halfway-through

Halfway through, and enjoying it! Here’s the stats

Me: 9h30 reading, 1h blogging
Husband: 11 hours reading

Here’s the books:

Me: The Earth: An Intimate History, Novecento, A Storm of Swords
Husband: Starship Troopers

And here’s the mid-event survey:

1. What are you reading right now?
Me: A Storm of Swords
Husband: is between books

2. How many books have you read so far?
Me: finished 1, read 1, started 1
Husband: 1 (started and finished)

3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?
Me: either I continue with this one through the whole read-a-thon, or I don’t know
Husband: The Master of Go, by Kawabata

4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day?
Me: I had a commitment during hours 2-5, so I started reading early
Husband: has forgone a chess tournament

5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
None.

6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
Me: lots of comments (and no spammers, even without comment moderation)
Husband: reading slower than he thought

7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
Not yet.

8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year?
Don’t know yet 🙂

9. Are you getting tired yet?
Definitely (both of us)

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?
Up to now it seems to me that keeping things separate (blogging vs reading time) is working fine.

  1. That’s a lot a lot a LOT of reading: you’re both doing just great. Keep those pages turnin’, as long as you’re still having fun!

    Cheering for you both from Team Trix

  2. One of these days, I’m going to have to rope my husband into marathoning too. As for him, he’s keeping busy today with football and EverQuest2. Maybe in the spring…

    Wishing you both Good Reading!
