Saturday - 48-hour Reading Challenge

I'm doing much better than last year so far.

8 - 10 pm - finished Sachar's The Cardturner; started and finished Wolff's True Believer.

9 - 10 am - started Woodson's Miracle's Boys

noon - 3 pm - finished Miracle's Boys; started and finished Selznick's The Invention of Hugo Cabret; started and finished Woodson's Locomotion.

4 -5 pm - started Marchetta's Finnikin of the Rock

6 - 8 pm - continued Marchetta's Finnikin of the Rock

8:15 - 8:45 pm - read kidlit blogs and wrote this post

Tally so far:
9 hours reading
.5 hours social media

I plan to read for at least 1.5 more hours tonight and then at least 5 to 7 hours on Sunday.

This was a good day! Besides lots of reading, I also did a couple errands, went on a long run, and did laundry - a nice balance.


  1. I'm so out of it lately, hadn't even heard about that Sachar book! Library, here I come...

  2. I'm very curious to hear what you think of Finnikin! And I hope your reading goes well today.

  3. I really must read The Cardturner. Were you there for the CLC Fall Gala when he spoke about his writing process for it?

  4. No wonder you sounded so perky on the phone last night.
