48 Hour Reading Challenge


June 6 – 8, 2008

Mother Reader at The Heart of a Mother, The Soul of a Reader is hosting the third annual 48- hour book challenge. For those of you unfamiliar with this challenge, participants commit to 48 hours of reading, reviewing and blogging – a marathon of sorts! The rules are simple:

  • Read and blog for any 48-hour period within the Friday-to-Monday-morning window. Start no sooner than 7:00 a.m. on Friday the sixth and end no later than 7:00 a.m. Monday.
  • The books should be about fifth-grade level and up. Adult books are fine, especially if any adult book bloggers want to play.
  • For promotion/solidarity purposes, let your readers know when you are starting the challenge with a specific entry on that day. Write your final summary on Monday, and for one day, we’ll all be on the same page, so to speak.
  • Your final summary needs to clearly include the number of books read, the approximate hours you spent reading/reviewing, and any other comments you want to make on the experience.
I’ve decided to participate this year as a warm up to Dewey’s 24 Hour Reading Challenge coming up at the end of the month. I’ll be starting the 48 hour Reading Challenge on Friday afternoon – probably around 4:00pm PCT, but will create an introductory post (or add onto this one) to give the exact time when I start.
