Final meme for the read-a-thon:

  1. Which hour was the most daunting? 1am when I realised I’d made it half way but was starting to acknowledge how tired I was
  2. A few high-interest books for others? Don’t think I’ve read enough to make that recommendation, but found crime fiction was both light to read and interesting enough to keep me going
  3. Suggestions for next time? Not really, I thought it was very well-organised and have nothing but admiration for the hosts
  4. What went well? Cheerleaders were very important, I enjoyed reading their comments on my posts
  5. How many books read? 4.75
  6. Names of the books? See above
  7. I enjoyed the first one the most, though pleased that I liked all of my chosen reads
  8. I suppose I enjoyed Nightmares & Fairy Tales the least (though I still enjoyed it); a bit grim for this type of event
  9. I wasn’t a cheerleader
  10. I will definitely take part in future events, probably still as a reader

And that’s me, thrilled at having read over 1000 pages, and off to have some lunch and enjoy the London spring sunshine.
