48 Hour Book Challenge Completed
I read for about 22 hours, which included some Twitter time and some blog visiting done at random times throughout the weekend. Here's what was read:
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne
The Silent Boy by Lois Lowry
Al Capone Does My Shirts by Gennifer Choldenko
Countdown by Deborah Wiles
Trading Faces by Julia DeVillers (finished with 11-year-old daughter)
I listened to a couple of hours of Guests of the Ayatallah by Mark Bowden, and started The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson.
My 15-year-old daughter also finished My Lost and Found Life by Melody Bowsher.
I'm looking forward to doing more visiting in the coming week to find out how everyone did and what great books are recommended. Oh, and I suppose I should do some reviews. It's good timing for the Bloggiesta coming up next weekend, June 11-13. I'm not sure if I will be able to participate yet, but I am hoping to! I have a lot of little tasks I would like to accomplish, and this event makes it fun.
*For the 48 Hour Book Challenge, we will be donating to Love 146, an organization my daughter heard about at her high school that she has become involved with.
