48 hour book challenge! June 4, 2010

Posted by Katie in community.

It’s about that time again. I am so excited to be participating again in MotherReader’s 48-Hour Book Challenge! This was my kick-off event in the book blogging community, and it is still one of my favorite events.

Last time, I didn’t post a starting line post — this time I am playing by the rules!

I have a general plan for reading:

– Read my two judging books for Nerds Heart YA.
– Tackle some ARCs from BEA. (Yes, I will also have a BEA post up when I find my camera cord…)
– Read a galley I got from a publisher from *before* BEA.

Other than that, I have no hard plans. I’m such a mood reader that I can’t plan out my reading ahead of time! That being said, I probably will read a lot of ARC sequels that I got so that I can pass them on to my teens in a timely manner. (And, you know, before the book is out.)

And my writing goal is to write reviews for every book I complete during the challenge so that I don’t get increasing behind in reviewing!

(I’ll be using Bloggiesta next weekend to catch up on all my reviews from before 48-Hour Book Challenge.)

I plan on reading from 9:00 p.m. CDT tonight (Friday) to 9:00 p.m. CDT Sunday.

Wish me luck, all! And let me know if you’re participating so I can cheer you on as well!

Good luck with your goals! I always think that reviewing everything back to back is the hardest part. Have a fun weekend!

Fun! I’ve been hearing murmurs about bloggiesta, perhaps I should check it out!

Hope your first few hours are going well! I’m headed into the bedroom to listen to more of the audiobook of The Woman in White with my six-year-old daughter. (Wow, that was a lot of prepositions in a row!

A worthy endeavor! Good luck!! I have some good galleys from BEA but I am so behind in my reading…
