This was my first time participating in the 48 Hour Book Challenge, and it was fun. It’s always nice to have an excuse to read, and being part of a larger challenge was an incentive to blog more frequently.

I might have more to say later, but it’s 2 am and I’m ready to sleep.

Thanks to Mother Reader for hosting, and I hope to do it again next year.

    I read Bad Girls Don’t Die too! It was awesome. I’m kind of afraid to watch Supernatural alone though. LOL. Great job, I hope to see you participating again next year!

    Pretty impressive showing, for someone who decided to enter at the last minute, and hoped to get to 12 hours. I guess the love of reading will out, given the opportunity. I’m going to have to read If I Stay one of these days, aren’t I?

    wow! that’s impressive!
    have you read the book of a thousand days
    by hale? i just finished that and it’s a retelling
    of a fairytale and i enjoyed it!

    how was dessen’s book? i’ve not read any of
    hers and plan on going to her signing next weekend.

    Thanks, everyone!

    Jen – Well, it helps that I didn’t have to work over the weekend, have no kids, and didn’t have anything that I *had* to do. Any other weekend this month, and there’s no way I could read as much. 12 hours might not have been possible. So it was good timing.

    Cindy – I did like Book of a Thousand Days. I liked Along for the Ride, too, even though I have (very) mixed feelings about some aspects of it. Which I’ll discuss when I review it. My favorite Sarah Dessen book is Just Listen.
