The 48 Hour Book Challenge: Saturday


First of all, I must apologize to my followers. At about 3:30am, I clicked something by accident and published a Test post that I had in my drafts folder from way back in the beginning when this was "Grace's Book Blog". I'm sorry. My brain was fried.

I’ve decided to create a different posting for each day because it will help me keep track of what I’ve read each day. I’ve decided that the cut off will be 3am because that is my normal bedtime and the prototypical end of my day.

So, I finished Twilight yesterday. Review to come sometime today. I have no idea what my opinion is yet. I was all enthralled with it but still had some ick feelings. I need to ruminate.

Overall, I am very pleased with my progress in this challenge. I have barely missed any time and the only time I missed was when I conked out at around 5am. I did read for about an hour before I fell asleep. Here is my progress for today:

4-5am-1 hour-read up to page 80 in Need

  1. I was commenting at around that magic a.m. hour, and I'm afraid that I was getting a little loopy myself. But was still a little fun to be up then because of reading - of all things. Good luck!

  2. I always get worried when I comment on other people's blogs early in the morning. I get really inappropriate when I am tired. lol. I am a night owl so I have had to ban myself from commenting after 1am.

  3. Yep, I have read it about twice before. I am a bit ambivalent about it.
