48 Hour Book Challenge
I have participated in the 48 Hour Book Challenge every year since MotherReader (@ http://www.motherreader.com/) began it. I was planning to read along this year too, but alas, a foul virus or SOMETHING has gotten a firm hold on my respiratory system and I am doing more coughing and napping than reading. I've spent a year of dodging, evading, bobbing and weaving, ducking, retreating, and hiding from the various germs that coat the surfaces of library books and public schools. I was successful until the reading reward FIELD TRIP.
Alas, there is no out-running the recycled air and germ smeared, virus encrusted surfaces of a bouncing/sliding emporium.
Still, I plan to attempt some reading because, over the past years, I have read some of my favorite books during this annual weekend challenge. I've participated on airplanes, during high school graduation ceremonies, and sometimes, from the comfort of my easy chair. I hope I can accomplish 48 minutes.
I am grateful to MR and to her dedication to this splendid event.
