105 Ways to Give a Book

Third Annual 48 Hour Book Challenge: Finish Line

48 Hour Book ChallengeYou’ve read your books. You’ve blogged your reviews. You’ve written your final summary. Let’s suppose you’ve rocked and read.

When you’ve completed your challenge, leave a comment on this post with a link to your final summary post. Don’t make me search for you. Again.

With any luck, I’ll announce the winners on Monday night.

Pat yourself on the back, pour a glass of wine (or beer, your choice), and we’ll do it again next year.

Kristi said...

Here's my wrap-up post.

Boy you guys read fast. I read for a total of 24 hours and did absolutely nothing other than sleep and fix myself food during the 48 hours and I only got 950 pages read (which I was happy with until I started reading everyone else's totals. Sigh...).

Oh well, I made progress and that's good. Can't wait for next year! This is the first time I've done anything like this and I had a lot of fun. Thanks so much for hosting!!

I finished up reading this morning and will upload the last file when my sons are off the computer.
I loved the excuse to read! I just hated not giving my 2 hours attention to each blog post so I'll be musing quite a bit on my 30 hours of traveling this week.
Glad to find a way to stress this out.

I'm a beauty school dropout. I was unable to finish as life just got in the way. I do appreciate all the work you put into creating and hosting this challenge. Thank You!

It was fun! I was basically reading all the time, although my nephew came over for a while and we had to play a bit. And I slept some. :-)
