Post-readathon-post: ALL THE AWESOMENESS!

So, I finished. For the stats-lovers:

Books finished: 6
Pages read: 1238
Time spent reading: 9 hours and 50 minutes
Audiobooking: 1 hour

I read the following books:

End of Event Meme:

1. Which hour was most daunting for you?
I would say hour 14/15, because I woke up and felt horrible. Luckily a bit more sleep was able to solve that.

2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
Read Glasshouse by Charles Stross. It’s an awesome book: sci-fi with an interesting plot. Or read one of Ursula Le Guin’s Earthsea books: short but gripping and entertaining.

3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
Put more time into 24hours? Would that be one of the possibilities?

4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
I loved the cheering teams: the fact they had names, and that they made it into a team-effort. That was really awesome to see, and it seemed to work well!

5. How many books did you read?
SIX! Exactly 6.

6. What were the names of the books you read?
I’ll leave you with this link, and I’ll update my Read in 2014 page within minutes after posting this.

7. Which book did you enjoy most?
Dune Messiah, although it was not the book that I gave the most stars. I think it’s the book that fitted the most with what I like to read usually: science fiction-ish, with the ability to immerse myself into another world. I did also enjoy Het Onbehagen van de Man (the uneasiness of the male) tremendously, but that’s because it was on masculinities and feminism, which is a topic I care deeply about anyway.

8. Which did you enjoy least?
As you can see at my goodreads-page, I rated all books (except the feminist one) 3 stars. I enjoyed ALL the books I picked, and so they were all equally most and leats enjoyed.

9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
Not applicable to me :) I did love all their work!

10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
If I’m able, I’ll participate! I’ll be a reader and maybe a #TeamRogue cheerer. I’ll probably take the same approach as I did now: read for a fixed amount of time, then tweet a bit and socialise with people, then read some more.

All the love to all the books and all the readers! See you in October!



  1. I need more time in 24 hours, too. One of those sci-fi writers ought to be able to figure this out for us!
