The time is here. Time to set aside all other activities to read, read, read. Are you planning to join Mother Reader’s 48 Hour Reading Challenge? It’s this weekend ,June 4-6, 2010. This is from her blog:
Read and blog for any 48-hour period within the Friday-to-Monday-morning window. Start no sooner than 7:00 a.m. on Friday the fourth and end no later than 7:00 a.m. Monday the sixth. So, go from 7:00 p.m. Friday to 7:00 p.m. on Sunday… or maybe 7:00 a.m. Saturday to 7:00 a.m. Monday works better for you. But the 48 hours do need to be in a row.
I am reading 7 PM Friday to 7 PM Sunday. Of course, there are some gaps such at from 11 AM-3 PM Saturday when I need to work at school in order to leave a day early for my 40th high school reunion. But this is my weekend to read the Reader Choice nominations for the coming year:
|The Magic Half||Barrows, Annie|
|Ellie McDoodle, New Kid in School||Barshaw, Ruth McNally|
|The Lemonade War||Davies, Jacqueline|
|Diamond Willow||Frost, Helen|
|The Truth about Horses, Friends, & My Life as a Coward||Gibson, Sarah|
|A Friendship for Today||McKissack, Patricia|
|First Light||Stead, Rebecca|
|Leepike Ridge||Wilson, N.D.|
|42 Miles||Zimmer, Tracie Vaughn|
If I get through these books, I am sure to find others on my TBR pile. Are you participating? What will you be reading?
