Sixth Annual 48-Hr Book Challenge Starts Now!

I was going to start in the morning, but then I decided that I couldn't wait! My bookshelf has so many books I've been looking forward to reading that I'm just going to go ahead and start. I do have to work all day tomorrow (curses!) so it'll be a smaller year than usual, but I aim to have a blast anyway. My audiobook will be Anne of Green Gables, so I'll listen to that as I drive to work, cook, take knitting breaks, exercise, and do other things that require two hands for.

For every book I read and review (because the reviewing's half the fun, dontcha know!) I'll donate five dollars to Make Way for Books, a local literacy organization. For every comment on a review, I'll add a dollar. If you're coming here from MotherReader's starting line post, check out my more recent reviews and updates. Also, you can follow me on Twitter or Find me on Facebook.

My first book will be a partial one, Scars by Cheryl Rainfield. I started reading this yesterday and thought I'd have it finished, but it's been a busy couple of days. Since I was getting the "gotta-review" feeling about it anyway, I decided this was going to be my first book.

If you have no idea what I'm talking about ("She wants to do what for 48 hours?"), drop by MotherReader's blog and find out! If you have a blog of your own (or were always meaning to start one), join in!

Have a good time reading! And I LOVE the Anne audiobooks :)

Scars was very powerful. It will be a hard act to follow for the rest of your TBR pile!

Abby said...

Yay! Happy reading!! I've got my audiobook of choice ready for whenever I need to do 2-handed things, too. (I'm listening to Lockdown by Walter Dean Myers.)

Bookologist said...

Haha, I like you "she wants to do what?!" My friend called me "cool." Hope your books go well!

Tammy said...

Go! Go! Go!
Read that book!
This is me cheering you on-with bright silver pom poms!

Melissa - I'm enjoying the heck out of Anne, but the narrator is bugging me just a smidge.

Ms. Y - I'm trying hard to balance my books between serious and light, because I learned my lesson a couple of years ago.

Abby, Bookologist, and Tammy - Thanks for the encouragement!
