48HBC: Poop Happened

Checking in here... I just finished Poop Happened!: A History of the World from the Bottom Up by Sarah Albee, which was gross and informative and too European-centered (but kids are going to love it). I wrote a full review, but I'll be posting it on Monday for Nonfiction Monday.

So, my 48-Hour Book Challenge Update...

Time spent reading: 7.5 hours
Time spent blogging/networking: 1.75 hours
Books completed: 3
Pages read: 757

I'm going to have to take a little break here in a bit and go to work for a few hours for our Summer Reading Club Kickoff Party, but I'll try to read a bit more before I go (maybe something YA...) and I'll be back by 5 to continue reading! We're on hour 17 of the challenge and I've read/blogged for 9.25 hours so far.

To everyone who's still going - you can do it! Keep going!

This book does sound like it would go over well in my elementary and middle school libraries. I am just ready to start reading again. I worked this morning. Keep up the good work!

I'm such a 12-year-old boy on the inside. I love the sound of this book! A little sad to hear that it's Eurocentric, but what're you gonna do.

Have fun at the kickoff party and keep us posted on the good stuff!

Thanks for cheering me on! I took an unscheduled nap so am feeling a little behind right now! Added Scumble to my TBR list! I love Savvy! Seems like for every book I get done...I add two more to the list! ;)
