48 Hour Reading Challenge

Mother Reader is hosting a 48 hour book Challenge on June 6–8, 2008. Here are the details:
~The weekend is June 6–8, 2008. Read and blog for any 48-hour period within the Friday-to-Monday-morning window. Start no sooner than 7:00 a.m. on Friday the sixth and end no later than 7:00 a.m. Monday. So, go from 7:00 p.m. Friday to 7:00 p.m. on Sunday... or maybe 7:00 a.m. Saturday to 7:00 a.m. Monday works better for you. But the 48 hours do need to be in a row.
~The books should be about fifth-grade level and up. Adult books are fine, especially if any adult book bloggers want to play. If you are generally a picture book blogger, consider this a good time to get caught up on all those wonderful books you’ve been hearing about. No graphic novels. I’m not trying to discriminate, I’m just trying to make sure that the number of books and page counts mean the same thing to everyone.
~It’s your call as to how much you want to put into it. If you want to skip sleep and showers to do this, go for it. If you want to be a bit more laid back, fine. But you have to put something into it or it’s not a challenge.
~Your final summary needs to clearly include the number of books read, the approximate hours you spent reading/reviewing, and any other comments you want to make on the experience. It needs to be posted no later than noon on Monday, June 9th.
Mother Reader has some more guidelines so hop over there and sign up. Realistically it is going to be very difficult for me to read 48 hours straight...above all else because there is NO way I will be able to stay awake 48 hours. Plus 1 year olds do not understand what the "Do not disturb" sign hanging around Mommy's neck means. :) But I figure if I can do 20 or so hours I will be doing good! So I am recruiting a friend and we are going to convince our husbands to take the kids somewhere fun...while we stay at home and read!! :) Let me know if you are joining...and if you can stay up for 48 hours!
