#48hbc : True Blue Scouts & halfway point!

I've reached the halfway point in my 48 hours and I'm still going strong! I think I've crafted my TBR pile well this year and I've enjoyed every book that I've picked up. My biggest problem has been deciding what to read next when I finish one because I want to read ALL THE BOOKS AT ONCE. (Which is impossible. For me, anyway.)

I'm at about 14 hours of challenge time, so it should be no problem to get another 10 hours in before the deadline and meet my goal of 24 hours. Boyfriend has not been as into the challenge this year (maybe last year he was just trying to woo me?), but he's read several books and will probably read more tonight and tomorrow.

Anyway, onto my latest finished book!

Book finished: The True Blue Scouts of Sugar Man Swamp by Kathi Appelt

Kathi Appelt is a master storyteller and this is one of my favorite books of the year. Reading this book, I honestly felt like I was sitting in front of a storyteller hearing the story unfold. It has the same excellent writing and strong sense of place that The Underneath had, but the story's lighter and more humorous, giving it a wider audience. Don't miss it! 

Challenge update:

Time spend reading/blogging: 14 hours
Pages read: 1056
Books finished: 5

Boyfriend is working on Cooked and took a break to BAKE BANANA BREAD. I am the luckiest librarian. :D
