48 Hour Book Challenge: Finish Line

So, shall we do stats, this lovely Sunday morning?

Start time: 7:30 a.m. Friday

Finish time: 7:30 a.m. Sunday (yes, I know this is later than that, but I had to get A breakfast.)

Hours spent reading: 20.5

Hours spent blogging/social media: 3 (my husband took the laptop in for some repairs during the middle, and I loathe the dinosaur downstairs. That really cut into computer time.)

Total time 23.5 (and that included getting K’s pictures taken and going downtown Friday evening to watch the Riverfest fireworks. Hooray for Hubby’s help!)

Books read: 9 (I wanted a dent, I got a dent. It’s still a big pile on the shelf, though.)

Favorite reads: Waiting for Normal, Dragonfly and A Thousand Days in Tuscany

Things learned: It really does help to take breaks every couple of hours. That, and getting outside helps for me. I thoroughly enjoyed taking Friday evening off and watching the fireworks with my family, and my total time didn’t suffer for that. That, and eating an entire box of Oreos, while good, is not something I really should do anymore.

I always look forward to this weekend: it’s so nice to get away (maybe someday I’ll actually get away away; we were talking yesterday about things I’d like to do for my 40th birthday if we had the money…) and do nothing but focus on the books for a couple of days. However, I always enjoy coming back to real life when I’m done. I guess extremes are good for appreciation.

As always, thanks Pam! It was a blast.

  1. I didn't get to Dragonfly, sigh. But I will! I really will!

    I hear you on the oreos! Mercifully, we ran out of cookies early on, and I couldn't be bothered to drag everyone to the store.

  2. I know what you mean about the Oreos! After all the caffeine and junk food I put into me this weekend, combined with lack of sleep, I was so not ready for my soccer game today! So continuing that food/drink thing is not a good idea. Sounds like you had a good time. I look forward to reading Waiting for Normal.
