48 Hours

This weekend is the Sixth Annual 48 Hour Book Challenge.

MotherReader explains in detail at her blog how the Book Challenge works, including reporting and prizes.

To give the bare bones of what it’s about, this weekend (June 3 to 5, 2011) select a 48 hour period.

Select middle grade, young adult, or adult books.

Then…read! Some people, like me, are a bit “laid back.” In other words, I’m challenging myself for how many books / how much time to read, but I know I’m not going to be one of those powerhouses who don’t sleep or shower during the 48 Hours.

If you’re Twittering about it, use the #48hbc hashtag.

Head over to Mother Reader, sign up, and start reading!

  2. Yay Liz! Glad to see you in the challenge! 😀
