48 hour book challenge


I am participating in this challenge and started my time officailly at 7:00a.m.  While I was driving no less as I was listening to my audio book. 

I will be updateing this post through out the 48 hours.  I will also be donating a $1 for every hour I read.  I know that isn't as much as some but money is alittle tight now.  

I will be donateing through Donors Choose and I will decide which one next week sometime.  

So I have read for 39 minutes so far.   


8:53a.m.  Ok so I can add another 73 minutes so my total so far is 1 hour and 52 minutes. 

11:00 a.m.  an hour on book online things and 30 minutes of reading.  So total is 2 hours 22 minutes  

12.07 p.m.  Add another 45 minutes to my total.  3 hours and 7 minutes.  finshed the book Huck by Janet Elder  an ARC I got from Shelfawareness.  

4:53 p.m.  only able to add 3 hours for this afternoon.  total is now 6 hours and 7 minutes. 

10:40 a.m. June 5th   I can add another  6 hours so my total is 12 hours and 7 minute plus 2 hours of online bookish things for a grand total so far of 14 hours.  I am a bit disappointed in myself but it seems like life keeps getting in my way.  I won't be able to do anymore reading or listening till later this afternoon but maybe I can get in a good solid couple of hours.  I did manage to finish Innocent by Scott Turow.  

9:06 a.m. June 6th  so my official time ended at 7:00 this morning .  I can add another 7 hours of reading plus another hour of bookish bloggy things.  For a grand total of 22 hours.  Not quite as much as I was hoping for but still a good amount.  

I got three books read :  Huck by Janet Elder  Review will come closer to the release date, Innnocent by Scott Turow  (audio book)  Review will be later this week,  The Sounds of Murder by Patricia Rockwell a book for Reviewthebook.com.  Review to come later.  Read alittle out of several other books.  

I will write a separate post about the charity I pick for my donation.  

I will try to visit other blogs throughout the rest of the day to cheerlead Good luck everyone!!!
