The 48-Hour Read-a-thon Starts!!

I'm off!!


Starting Time: 3pm Friday June 6, 2008
Ending Time: 3pm Sunday June 8, 2008


I'm going to start with several challenge books that I've been trying to finish:

  1. A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson which will finish up my Book Awards Challenge
  2. Lord of the Fading Lands by C.L. Wilson for the Themed Challenge
  3. Dead Girls are Easy by Terri Garey also for the Themed Challenge to wrap up the challenge
I haven't decided what I'll be reading after this, but I have plenty of choices ;>). I'll keep you updated throughout the challenge. Wish me luck!

Good luck! I can't wait to hear how you do. Oh, and I'm adding you to my feedreader so I can keep up with your posts. :)

I would have jumped at this challenge, but I sort of had my own book binge Memorial Day weekend while my hubby was out of town. I once started listening to A Short History of Nearly Everything, but I decided it would be better read, but I've never gotten back to it. I loved it, it was just a lot of info that I needed to pause and process, which an audio book won't let me do. Have fun!

Thanks for coming by, everyone! And the words of encouragement ;>).

Chain-Reader - I don't think I'd like A Short History on audio either. I splurged for the Special Illustrated Edition of the book and I'm not a bit sorry. The pictures are wonderful! This book will live on my shelves forever ;>).
