48hr Book Challenge

I didn't plan on joining this challenge, but you know, everyone else is doing it, so... And I happen to have a free weekend all to myself.

MotherReader is hosting this excellent challenge, which begins anytime today and lasts for a consecutive 48 hours. Hours spent reading are what's measured in this challenge, and I honestly can't think of how many I'll add up. 10? 20? 30? I like to sleep. And eat. And shower. So, we'll just see.

I'll be starting at 5pm CST today and finishing at 5pm CST on Sunday.

I have many books sitting on my desk awaiting my attention, but I don't want to reveal them because I'm feeling a bit superstitious. Anytime I share my loot, I immediately lose interest in it - so I'll just surprise you all at the end. :)

Oh fine, I'll let you know what I'll be starting with since I'm already about halfway through it - Magic Study by Maria V. Snyder. It's the second book in the Study trilogy, and I am enjoying it quite thoroughly. Though I must say that it is very different from Poison Study, which threw me for a loop. 

Happy reading, everyone!

I'm considering taking baths so I can read while soaking. :)

Personally, I think the chill approach to this challenge is the best. :) Have a fun reading weekend!

Glad to have you with us for the challenge! And I lose interest in books sometimes if I think about them or look at them too long before starting them, so I prefer not to have a set list of books I'm going to read. I like to have a choice. I guess I don't like anyone telling me what to read... even myself. ;)

Happy reading!

Thanks for all the well wishes! I need to tear myself away from my computer and get to reading some more...

I loved Poison Study, thought Magic Study was pretty good, got bored midway through the last book, Fire Study. I did adore the love interest (shoot, what's his name? This was months ago.)

Good luck and happy reading!

God luck with the reading. I will be checking in to see how you are doing. I am presently up to 12 hours and hope to at least finish 20 total.

I don't like sharing what I plan on reading because I end up changing it. I had completely different books lined up than what I've read so far. Read on!
