End of Event Survey-Oct'16

1.Which hour was most daunting for you?


None. I started 2-3hours late and didn't read between 3-12am my time. So roughly participated for 12 hours. It's my lowest :(


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


Definitely Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson


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


No, it's perfect.


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


I was more... relaxed. I have a competitive nature so I always want to read more and more during readathons. This time I knew I wasn't going to make it full 24 hours. So enjoyed it more.


5.How many books did you read?


Finished 2. Partially read another 2.


6.What were the names of the books you read?


Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson
Turkish Awakening by Alev Scott
The other 2 are written by Turkish authors and no English translation


7.Which book did you enjoy most?


See #2


8.Which did you enjoy least?


It wasn't bad but as a nonfiction book Turkish Awakening didn't tell anything new to me. But I'm a local and can feel how informative it can be to a foreigner.


9.How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?


Will definitely participate in RaT again! As a reader.
