105 Ways to Give a Book

Ninth Annual 48 Hour Book Challenge: Finish Line

You made it! Yay you!

When you finish your 48 hours, sign in with Mr. Linky below with the link to your final summary, which should include the number and/or titles of books read and the amount of time spent on the challenge. Rounding to the quarter hour will do just fine. Given different starting times over the weekend and time zones, the absolute end is set at Monday, June 9th, at 7:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time and all final summary posts should be up by then. Winners, prizes and such will be announced on Monday afternoonish.

Thanks to everyone who participated, supported, and promoted the 48 Hour Book Challenge!

Thanks for organizing this! Now that I know about it, I hope to do it every year. I loved the #WeNeedDiverseBooks connection!

Well, I'm afraid before I join an event I should consider my schedule. This weekend's graduation parties and family responsibilities made it challenging so I only read a disappointing 6 hours. On a positive note, I located some interesting Middle Eastern literature and still managed a little quiet reading time which I enjoyed immensely. I will continue to finish these titles after kicking off summer reading with your event. Thank you, Mother Reader. Maybe next year I'll be back at the finish line.

Thanks for hosting, MotherReader, and thanks to everyone else for commenting and inspiring me this weekend! I didn't get as many hours in as I wanted this year but I'm pleased with the results anyway!

I feel the same as some of the other posters - I didn't get quite as much done as I thought I would, but I still loved doing it anyway. Thanks for hosting!!

Thanks, Mother Reader! It was fun, as always.

Thanks for hosting! I enjoyed it, even though I didn't make it up to the 12 hours for official participation.

I needed to post my finish line and go to bed anyway, but I'd like to point out that in the original post you said final summaries needed to be up by noon Monday, not by the end of the Challenge at 7. (Yeah, wouldn't be able to count them as Challenge time then, but nice to have that option.) Also originally you didn't say anything about the Challenge starting and ending times being in EST... but anyway. Like I said, it's just as well, better for me to post it tonight. Meh. Thanks!
