Sarah | 6 comments I know I'm halfway through but I needed a central location for updates and mini challenges. There will be more on Litsy (@saguarosally) and Instagram (@booksandcacti and @saguarosally).

I'm not going at this full bore. If I read for four or five hours today, I'm happy.

Sarah | 6 comments It has been fun!

Which hour was most daunting for you?

The ones at home. It's insanely hot in the house and I can't get to the thermostat. Outside the high was something like 97.

Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?

I'd go with easy, fun reads. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child was a good choice.

Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next season?

Centralize social media updates. I confused myself trying to keep up with blogs, Instagram, Goodreads, Litsy...

What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?

The engagement and lack of pressure to read through 24 hours.

How many books did you read? About 2.25

What were the names of the books you read?

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Between the World and Me, currently reading Room.

Which book did you enjoy most?
Which did you enjoy least?

I like them all.
