We’re only hours away from the official start of the 2007 48-hour book challenge! Created by MotherReader, the challenge invites you to read as many books as you can within a 48 hour period. The 48 hours can take place any time between tomorrow (Friday) morning at 7 AM and 7 AM Monday morning. There are prizes for the most books read, most pages, and most time spent, as well as some random prizes. Click here for the official rules and click here to sign up in the comments.
I’m not a very fast reader, so I don’t expect to win. For me it’s a personal challenge, but mostly it’s a good reason to spend the weekend reading. I have three books lined up, which is probably all I can handle. If I finish those by some miracle, I have plenty more. I love fairies, so I decided to go with a faerie theme and read some books that I’ve been wanting to read:
- Faeries of Dreamdark: Blackbringer by Laini Taylor
- Ironside by Holly Black
- Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr
I’ll be starting my 48 hours on Friday morning, since Sunday will be a busy day for me. I’ll check in with a post in the morning when I start.
