Starting Line: 8th Annual MotherReader's 48 Hour Book Challenge

48 Hour Book ChallengeReady to read?Check instructions posted yesterday, and sign up below.

Read a bunch, then spend some time visiting other people's blogs to see what they are up to. If you tweet, use #48HBC.

Once you wake up and have enough coffee, post a picture of your TBR if you would like, and possibly a picture of you reading in your favorite spot, so it feels more social and we can get to know each other!

Ready? Set! Go!

Ooh I just realized mine might have been signed in with my other blog name. My Kelly @muellerspace one is bookotomy.blogspot.com. Bookologist, I am. I think this should be the correct one.

I am heading to the library to pick a couple of last minute reads. I am starting my reading at 4 pm.

Good luck and happy reading everyone!

Hello, everyone!

Posted my initial (and flexible) line-up and have already taken a peek at some blogs. Will hop around throughout the day when I get a chance.

Looking forward to learning about your great reads.

Mea culpa.

My link for the starting line should be http://bit.ly/19Q7o67

I was busy cutting and pasting links, I only realized after that it goes straight to the main page on Linky Tools.

Nice to see such a wide selection of books so far. :)


Cheers,

Tonette

I'm so excited to be participating! I asked permission from Hubby at dinner tonight and he turned around and asked my sons if they thought it sounded like fun too.

S (age 10 finishing 5th grade) decided he had too much homework (end of year book report), but R (age 9, finishing 3rd grade but has been reading "middle grade" books for about a year) thought it was fun. So I'll be posting on my GoodReads page about the fun we are having reading as a team. @jml_tweets
