48-Hour Book Challenge 24-Hour Update

I’m just about halfway through my 48 hours of reading and blogging. Why do I feel I’ve gotten so little done? I suppose it’s because 48 hours sounds like soooooo much longer than it ends up actually being.

I’ve finished only two books, but the first was the very long (516 pages) The Red Pyramid, by Rick Riordan. The second was shorter, Lois Lowry’s The Birthday Ball. I’ve only gotten the first of those reviewed, but I have done a total of 8 posts, counting posts on Sonderjourneys, Sonderquotes, and Sonderblessings.

Here’s how my time has broken down:
Reading: 6 hours and 45 minutes
Blogging: 4 hours and 20 minutes
Listening to an audiobook: 1 hour, 40 minutes
Networking: 50 minutes

For a grand total of 13 hours and 35 minutes! Woo-hoo!

I wish I thought I could get this much time in during the second half.

I should point out that in my reading, I like to read nonfiction a little bit at a time. I have a stack of devotional books out of which I read a page a day. Then my other nonfiction, I read a chapter at a time. So in that 6 hours and 45 minutes, I may have finished only two books, but I have read parts of 15 books.

I am going to do some networking now — visit the blogs of others who are doing the 48-Hour Book Challenge. But then I really want to get some more reviews written. I don’t want to end the weekend more behind on reviews than I was when I started, after all!
