48 Hour Book Challenge

Ok. I’m going to try this 48 Hour Book Challenge for the first time. Abby the Librarian has talked about it every year, so I figure it’s time. My 48 hours begins now, 9PM on Friday night. I’ve got some books I really need to finish:

  • Gregory Maguire’s Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister (for our Beyond Imagination book group next week)
  • Inferno, by Dan Brown (it’s due pretty soon, I love his books, and I really want to finish it)
  • Wild, by Cheryl Strayed (for our noon book group a week and a half from now)

If I work at it, I can probably get those done before this time Sunday night. First up, finish Maguire!

    Hooray! Glad you finally gave in to positive peer pressure. It’s always nice to be able to say that you HAVE to spend lots of time reading. Hope you enjoy it.

    It’s great to see a guy participating! I just read your “Grad School Jitters” post, and I just graduated from library school last month. There were several older people in our program, some with children in college as well, so you won’t be the only one. Good luck with the challenge and applying to grad school!

    I downloaded Wild on my Nook-It’s on my summertime read list-can’t wait to hear your thoughts on it. Good luck with your reading stack and have a fantastic weekend!

    Hope you’re having fun! I like using the challenge for languishing books that should have been finished long ago.
