MotherReader put out a save-the-date for the 48-Hour Book Challenge. If you've never indulged in this divine collective madness, make 2010 your first year. A bunch of us read and review as much as humanly possible in a 48-hour period. (Some people really and truly read for 48 hours straight. I reel just thinking about it.) It's lots of fun, even more so because we're all egging each other on. Watch MotherReader's blog for more updates, and if you have something to donate as a prize, let her know! This year it's scheduled for June 4-6.
You know what this means, don't you? It means I have less than six weeks to figure out my reading challenge theme for this year. Most people don't do themes, but they're not as nuts as I am. In the past I've done ARC-a-Palooza and the Hypetastic Carnival.
My ideas so far: re-reading childhood faves, clearing off the shelf-of-shame (meaning, those classics I really should have read but haven't), and finally tackling those books I promised somebody I'd read. Votes? Any further ideas? Let me know!
