Sunday - 48 hour reading challenge

The 48 Hour Book Challenge is over for 2010.

Friday - 2 hours of reading
Saturday - 8 hours of reading; .5 hours of blogging
Sunday - 5 hours of reading

Total - 15.5 hours of reading and blogging

Considering how much Other Stuff I also managed to get done over the weekend (you know - chores, cooking, sleeping), I'm feeling pretty good about that.

Books read:

Finished The Cardturner by Louis Sachar
Began and finished True Believer by Virginia Euwer Wolff
Began and finished Miracle's Boys by Jacqueline Woodson
Began and finished The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick
Began and finished Locomotion by Jacqueline Woodson
Began and finished Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta

Total - 5.5 books read

Many of these (all but the Sachar and the Marchetta) needed to be read or re-read for a committee I'm on. I'd been putting this off because my stack of new books is so tempting and tantalizing, but this weekend was the perfect opportunity to motor through those Woodsons, the Wolff, and the Selznick. And I'm so glad I did - great stuff deserves to be read again and again!


  1. Yay for you!

    Did you like Finnikin?????

  2. Very much! I'll review it soon, I promise.
