I am finished with my reading for the 48 Hour Reading Challenge! Thanks every one who stopped by with encouragement, and thanks to Ms. Yingling for hosting it!
Total of pages read/listened to: 3086
Total time read: 23 hours and 32 minutes
(there were Demands on my time. Some polite requests too).
Plus three hours (ish) of social media
Books finished: 11. Books being actively read: 1
(clearly I need to do this every weekend. This is not even a drop in the bucket. I listened to a long audiobook for much of my time, which was fun, and allowed me to work outside, but it cut down on my book count lots)
Here's what I read, broken down by category (mainly for my own interest)
(I started with 5 each in 6 categories). I am pretty happy with all the books I read; In the Shadow of Blackbirds was particularly good, as was Hat Full of Sky.
