105 Ways to Give a Book

MotherReader 48HBC Update IV

Last bit of time on the clock, it’s the overnight shift, and I’m out of Diet Coke. We’ll see how this goes.

8:00 p.m. – 9:15 p.m.Read The Strange Case of Origami Yoda. Guys, why didn’t anyone tell me that the Kidlitosphere is thanked in the acknowledgements? Awesome!
9:15 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.Brief tweeting, then blog post updating.
9:30 p.m. – 9:45 p.m.Heading to the school early to pick up teen because the parking there sucks. Decide I’m going to bring my notebook — actual spiral notebook — to see if I can draft some posts while I wait, because I’ve written nothing so far. Nothing!
9:45 p.m. – 10:15 p.m.Yeah, that didn’t work. But I did bring a back-up book to read in the car.
10:15 p.m. – 10:45 p.m.Heard about the dance on the drive home, and sat through the retelling at home. She had fun, though the boys didn’t dance with the girls. Typical.
10:45 p.m. – 11:00 p.m.Post updating.
11:00 p.m. – 12:00 mid.Social Media time.
12:00 mid. – 1:00 a.m.Writing reviews. Kind of. Not going well.
1:00 a.m. – 2:00 a.m.Dozing on the couch.
2:00 a.m. – 3:00 a.m.Writing final summary.
3:00 a.m. – 4:15 a.m.Last Social Media time, checking in on the last thirty blogs.
4:15 a.m. – 8:00 a.m.Sleeping away the last hours of my time, I’m guessing quite happily.

Six and a half hours of the twelve-hour period.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Really am enjoying participating for the first time this year. Added The Strange Case of Origami Yoda and How I, Nicky Flynn, Finally Get a Life (and a Dog) to my TBR pile! Thanks!

From the blogs I have visited it is clearly another highly successful #48HBC, congratulations! Interesting to see that boys still don't dance with the girls, but hope lives eternal in the girls!
