48 Hour Book Challenge Finish Line
As happened last year, I didn't quite meet my goal. Today I didn't keep track, because I could tell from almost the beginning of the day that I wasn't going to meet my goal. So I probably got about 11 hours in total. I was doing great until I got up this morning. Then all of the multitude of chores and a couple of under the weather kids brought my day to a screeching halt. Another thing that didn't help me at all was that after the two books I finished, I had a hard time reading much of anything else. I dipped into an essay in Only Connect: Readings in Children's Literature and read more of How to Eat a Small Country, but because both were nonfiction, it was a lot harder going than the fiction had been. Next year, I will try to read Friday and Saturday and take Sunday as a day to get focused on the week, since this has been a problem for me both years. But it's been a lot of fun, and I read a lot more than I do on any other weekend, which makes it great too!!! Usually on Sundays I might read a magazine or two, but not much else, so I feel accomplished no matter what.
