Last year, one of my friends alerted me to the 48-Hour Book Challenge (then hosted by MotherReader, this year hosted by Ms. Yingling with help from Abby the Librarian). Unfortunately, she alerted me to it after it was finished. Since then, however, I started following some of the blogs who participated in the challenge, and waited to see when the 2013 challenge would be, thinking I'd give it a shot. Well, that time is now! So, this is my first time ever participating in any sort of blogging challenge (I'm in the midst of the Hub Reading Challenge right now, but haven't been blogging along), and I figured this was a good one to try out! Unfortunately, it doesn't fall on a particularly good weekend for me - I have to work all day Friday and Saturday and we have theater tickets for Sunday night - but I will participate as much as I can! I've already warned my boyfriend that I plan on doing nothing but reading when I'm not working, so hopefully he knows I mean business.
As I mentioned, I'm trying desperately to finish the Hub Reading Challenge, so my TBR is mainly made of those books, with a couple of ARCs thrown in for good measure (of course, if none of these strike my fancy, I've got about 200 other books in my house to choose from). My goal will be 12 hours of reading - I'm setting it low so hopefully I can blow it out of the water!
I'm starting at 6pm CST Friday, so I'll be finishing up at 6pm CST Sunday, right before we head to the theater. Have fun everyone!
