You guys! We made it!!!!! Not only did we make it, we werked it.
First, the winner of the Welcome Intro Survey challenge is:
And the winner of the Hour 42 Favorites challenge is:
If you won a challenge giveaway during the ‘thon, expect an email from me this week to confirm which prize you want and all that nitty gritty stuff.
Next, what would an Intro survey be if there wasn’t a Closing survey to go along with it? No prize for this one but your answers will help make this readathon even better next time. The last time we did one of these there were close to 200 readers; for this go-around, you guys more than doubled that number (I know, I can hardly believe it myself). So with that kind of growth, I want to make sure this is as wonderful an experience as possible.
In the comments or on your own online space linked in the comments, please tell me:
- How many books did you read? Pages? (If you didn’t keep track, tell me that too!)
- How many hours did you read?
- What do you think worked well in this readathon?
- What do you think could be done to improve the readathon for next time?
- Will you participate in a future 24in48 readathon?
Also, I want to just say thank you to all of you readers – all 462 of you – who participated and tweeted and ‘grammed and YouTubed and generally spread the word about this amazing weekend of reading. Just a few years ago, this readathon had barely a few dozen participants, and I’m so excited that so many of you jumped in and made this readathon the fantastic weekend that it is. I hope you had as much fun as I did. You guys rule. Meryl thinks so too.
Last but not least, mark your calendars. The next official 24in48 readathon will be on
July 23-24, 2016
Can’t wait to see you then!
