48 Hour Book Challenge 2009: GO!

So, officially my time is starting at 7:00am (EDT) Saturday morning. Um... and I'm currently in Cincinnati watching my college roommate become a rabbi! So I should be back home some time this afternoon, which is when I'll start reading. And I'll read my little eyes out until I can't keep my eyes open anymore on Sunday.

I have a sizeable TBR pile, including these books:


This year, I'm not making a goal of number of books read (although, okay, in the back of my mind I'm hoping to read at least 5). I do have the goal of reading for at least 20 hours.

So, good luck, everyone! Have fun! I am seriously jealous of anyone reading Catching Fire or Fire this weekend! Annnd I'll have another post when I'm actually back in town and ready to start.

Ready... set........ GO!!!

I'm so much a book geek that I clicked on your picture to make sure I could see everyone of your book possibilities. So many good choices! I can't wait to see what you pick.

So did I, MR! :)

YAY Abby! Can't wait to see what you read. (And with all the pressure, I'm going to have to get to Fire, won't I?)

Those are some really really awesome choices.

You have some GREAT books there! I loved Calpurnia Tate and If I Stay... and I have quite a few of those others in my own TBR pile. I look forward to seeing what you think! Enjoy!

If I Stay is an excellent read. One I think you will enjoy too. Have fun reading!

I have a couple of those books in my pile. I just bought Hero Type and BoyToy. Look forward to seeing what you are reading.

Go Abby!!!! I'm really excited to see Impossible and Paper Towns in your pile. Hopefully you will have a chance to get to them.

Well, Cincinnati is a fun place to visit, even if it kept you from reading right away. Next year I want to have about 50 books waiting to be read, because I haven't liked some in my pile. I hope all of yours are good.

Like MotherReader and others I had to of course click and look at your titles...Calpurnia seems to be a popular title for the Challenge, I really must get it as well as If I Stay. Will look forward to what you have to say about those two if they made the final pile for you! Happy reading!

Cool collection of books!

Also, photo-posting is a nifty idea - will hope to borrow that one for the FIFTH Annual Book Challenge!
