48 Hour Book Challenge

Finally a weekend that's all mine--no guests (although I dearly love having them!) and no planned activities (although I dearly loved being at both of the graduation weekends we've celebrated recently!). To make sure I give myself plenty of "me" time this weekend, I've decided to jump on the bandwagon and join the 48 Hour Book Challenge, hosted by Mother Reader. It's my first time doing this challenge and, while I want to make it a challenge, I also want it to be a time for me to relax. So I'm going to start reading at 6 p.m. on Friday and shoot for the minimum of 12 hours between now and Sunday at 6 p.m.


I'm starting off the weekend with Meg Waite Clayton's The Four Ms. Bradwells which I just started. Then I'll move on to The Cookbook Collector by Allegra Goodman which is the June selection for the Omaha Bookworms. 


And now, off to read! Enjoy your weekend!

  1. Yay, Lisa! So glad you're joining in. Let's see how much reading we can get done. I just woke up from an almost two hour nap. Doh! Could not keep my eyes open! Good luck and I'll try to check in with you again some time. =O)
