As you should know by now if you've been reading this blog at all, this weekend is MotherReader's (in)famous 48-Hour Book Challenge. This year my theme is Books I Told Somebody I'd Read. I have a stack of books I've acquired by various means (some devious, muahaha). These are books I told somebody I'd read--authors, publicists, early reviewer programs. I'm reading them all this weekend, or at least giving them all my standard 50 pages. If I perchance finish the whole stack before the 48 hours are up, I'll dive into my regularly scheduled to-read shelf.
I'm donating to First Book, with a standard rate of 10 dollars per review posted between now and noon on Sunday, and 1 dollar for each comment on a post between now and Monday afternoon. Since my blog feeds onto my Facebook page, I'm also counting comments and "likes" that the blog/FB post generates. 50 cents for a like, 1 dollar for a comment. Plus I'll be Tweeting. My god, you guys, I'm so connected I can't stand it.
If you want in on the divine madness, pop on over to MotherReader's blog and sign up. You do need a blog to play, but consider this your impetus to finally start one. What's there to lose?
If you're visiting from MotherReader's starting line post, click this link: 48-Hour Book Challenge to see what I've posted since then. (Also, welcome to Casa de Bibliovore! Have a seat, raid the fridge, but if you drink any of my Code Red I'll be very unhappy.)
My first book will be Fat Cat by Robin Brande. Just because I feel in the need for something fun, and she always makes me laugh.
. . . And I'm off!
