The 48 hour Reading Challenge is hosted by Mother Reader (click to link to her blog for info. Here are the basic rules from her site:
The weekend is June 4–6, 2010. 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 seventh. 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. That said, during that 48-hour period you may still have gaps of time in which you can’t read, and that’s fine
I'm mostly doing this challenge as a lark since my husband is off camping tonight. I have a lot going on this weekend (party, yard work, husband's birthday, needy dogs) but I am shooting to log 12 hours or more. I want to try it out in hopes next time around I can devote more time and incorporate the charitable part of the challenge.
My official start time is 5:30 EDT this evening. I'm not sure how much I'll be blogging during the weekend but I hope to at least pop in and update with what I am reading and the rating of the book I finished. I will save my reviews for later this week.
Right now I'm reading A Northern Light by Jennifer Donnelly
