It’s the seventh annual 48 Hours of Reading Extravaganza developed by Pam of Mother Reader. I remember the first year, it was gloriously sunny and I planted myself in the backyard to read. I really haven’t had another weekend like that since our weather in the Pacific Northwest is fickled.
Last year’s stats:
Total Hours: 19.5 hours (joint reading and book activities)
Total Pages: 1373 pages
Total Books read: 7 books
This year’s goal:
Total Hours: 25 hours (joint reading and book activities)
Total Pages: 2000 pages
Total Books read: 10 books

Total Hours: 3 hours (joint reading and book activities)

Off to read.
