48 hour book challenge--finish line!

Here's my final stats for the book challenge:

Time: Friday 8:30 a.m. until Sunday 8:30 a.m.

Read: 8 books: Good Night Maman, Is It Night or Day, Warriors in the Crossfire, Once, Little Blog on the Prairie, The Year of Goodbyes, Smells Like Dog, and Revolver.

Reviewed on blog: 7 books (all except Smells Like Dog)

Hours spent reading/blogging: Day 1: 9.5 hours; Day 2: 12 hours: Day 3 (early morning): 1 hour

Total hours: 22.5

I know I won't be among the highest in total hours but I'm pretty happy with my total considering I had to take a long break last night to take my kids to the local high school production of West Side Story (a musical that never seems to get old!), and yes, for sleeping too!

Thanks, Mother Reader, for sponsoring a fun event for the blogging community! It's also a great opportunity to check out new blogs, since I have been trying to take a look at the blogs of all those who have signed up for the challenge.

Hey, Margo! I love your blog. All historical fiction, all the time. What a neat concept.

I only got 4 books read during the 48HBC, but wow, did I power through my backlog of reviews to write!

Congratulations you did so well. I wonder who made it the whole 48 hours.

Those are great numbers - I still feel a little silly with my read two books, finished two books. Eh, next time I'll pick shorter ones :)
