SiS read-a-thon Final Report!

1. First of all, give us an end-of-read-a-thon status update. Books read, pages read, you know the drill!
*books read: only 1
*Pages read since last update: only 13
*Pages total: 229
2.What is your favorite book you read during the read-a-thon?
The only one I completed was Only You, Sierra, so I suppose that was my favorite!
3. Did you participate in any mini-challenges? Which ones?
I participated in all of the mini challenges! Even the optional ones :-)
4. Which mini-challenge was your favorite?
My favorite was creating a story, I really enjoyed seeing all the ways people connected those four words!
5. What has been your favorite thing about the read-a-thon?
That I was able to connect with new bloggers and make friends, or at least get my very first followers!
6. Are you satisfied with how much reading you got done? Did you do more than you expected? Less?
I'm rather unsatisfied with the amount of reading I got done, but when you are raising a 14-month old you can't expect to do much anything else. I expected to get a bit more done than I did.
7. What did you think of the updates? Too close together? Didn't like the time limit?
I think the updates were perfectly spaced out. It gave me enough time to attempt to get some reading done before I had to post and tell you guys how little I actually got done!
8. If you could change one thing about the read-a-thon, what would it be?
I personally wish that it was held for another day (til Sunday night.) I am in the Easter time zone, so at least 8pm is 10pm for me, but I get most of my reading done after the baby goes to sleep around 9pm. I the read-a-thon was held for another day, then I would have had two full nights to read and would have looked more productive P
9. Would you participate in another read-a-thon hosted by Squeaky Books? Why or why not? (Again, I won't cry if you say "no")
yes, I would! This was my first read-a-thon and it was very enjoyable!
10.Any last comments on the read-a-thon?
Well, I sure would like to win at least one of those prizes...
