169. 48-Hour Reading Challenge

I had a week off, and thought I’d finish up with one of my favorite things to do – a 48-Hour Reading Challenge.

I got the idea from Mother Reader, years ago. I admit, it’s more fun when you join people from all over the internet doing it at the same time, but I didn’t plan enough in advance.

In the 48 hours from Friday morning at 8:00 am to Sunday morning at 8:00 am, I managed to read and review for 29 hours and 5 minutes.

I finished 7 books in that time, 4 of them started from the beginning.
I wrote reviews of 10 books, writing 5,466 words.
I posted 3 reviews.

I figure next year, when I’m on the Newbery committee, I’ll need to do this much more often! (Without taking time to post reviews!)

But in the meantime, it was a lot of fun.
