Here is the 48 Hour Book Challenge.
Here are my books, an assortment of mostly sci fi/fantasy books, all of a diverse nature:
Here's how I did last year:
Total of pages read/listened to: 3086
Total time read: 23 hours and 32 minutes
And off I go at 4:40 pm to do even better.............
5:50: have read Dragon Keeper, by Carole Wilkinson (333 pages). Here's my review.
6:08: have visited other blogs and commented
8:23: read from 6:18 to 7:50. Blogged from 7:50 till now. Ten minute break, then read till 10:05
Totals for day 1: 5 hours and 12 minutes of reading 48 minutes of social media
After 25 minutes of reading, finished my second book--The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, by Rebecca Skloot. Am feeling rather stunned by it. (328 pages). Also got in 5 minutes of social media time and 25 minutes blog post writing time.
7:08 pm Not a good day for reading-I fell aleep, and woke to find my help was need on Project Fix Leaking Roof.
But I have finished a third book--Across the Nightingale Floor, by Lian Hearn. I'm not going to bother reviewing it, cause of not liking it much. I think if girls are described as strong when we first meet them, they shouldn't be progressivly described (with no sickness or anything) as more and more delicate. I think if we are told in no uncertain terms that the main character boy won't make a good assassin because he was raised to abhor killing, some time should be taken to explain how he gets to be the sort of person who casually thinks "Oh I want to kill that person." I think a few lessons isn't enough to make a novice a compitent sword fighter. That sort of thing.
Plus the insta love was REALLY over the top.
Kirkus described it as "a rousingly muscular adventure," and I am not sure if we read the same book. Nor am I sure what a "muscular" adventure is.
stats update: 1 hour of audiobook listening (Throne of the Crescent Moon). 2 and half more hours of reading. 10 more minutes of social media. 1 nap. 1 hour scraping paint off really long piece decorative molding taken from area of suspected roof leak.
day two totals: 5:55 hours of reading. 1 hour of social media
Day three: 7 hours and 35 min of reading, 10 min social media
