48-Hour Book Challenge Finish Line 2011

This year I only managed a paltry 10 hours or so for the 48-Hour Book Challenge. Nowhere near as impressive as the 30+ hours I managed to log last year. I got off to a nice strong start... but then, it turns out, hammocks are truly ideal for napping, and I slept for a good bit on Saturday. Summer Reading Club at the library started this past week, so I must have needed to recharge after a week of hard work making sure our kick-off events all went smoothly.

What a crazy weekend! One thing after another kept coming up. An aquarium emergency that needed my attention... a family wedding on Sunday... some friends from out of town, and this was my only chance to see them for a while.

I did get some reading done, however, and managed to polish off the following books.

The Demon Trapper's Daughter - Jana Oliver
Hurricane Dancers - Margarita Engle
Skinned - Robin Wasserman
Thunder Over Kandahar - Sharon E. McKay

Ah well. There are those times that "real life" just takes over, and this was one of them. I'm sure I'll get more done next year!


  1. That's 10 hours more than I did. Great job! I hope you liked Demon Trapper's Daughter.

  2. Ah, the siren song of the hammock. Hard to resist, indeed. Thanks for playing

  3. I loved Demon Trapper's Daughter! Review to come soon.
