Oh, hour 12. I really thought I’d be further along by now. Instead, I’ve been dozing off and on throughout the day while trying to finish The Weird Sisters, which I have now happily done. Now, it’s on to Dreamland.

I’m removing my minutes spent reading tally, because I can’t really keep accurate track when I am sleeping off and on throughout the event. Come October, I am sleeping more than three hours the night before.

Mid-Event Survey:
1. What are you reading right now? Dreamland by Sarah Dessen
2. How many books have you read so far? Just one- The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown.
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon? Assassination Vacation by Sarah Vowell
4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day? Nope. However, I don’t really have the whole day free. I’m moving my reading over to my brother’s to babysit my niece and nephew for an hour or so tonight.
5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those? My interruptions have all involved little naps and were entirely of my own doing. And I happily succumb to the sandman when he knocks.
6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far? I thought I would have read more by now.
7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? Nope
8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year? Sleep more the night before.
9. Are you getting tired yet? Yes. And when I get tired, I sleep.
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? Sadly, no.
