#48HBC Finish Line

And the 10th Annual 48-Hour Book Challenge draws to a close!

My time went from 2:30pm Friday to 2:30pm today. During that block:

Total time spent reading & blogging: 20 hours
Books finished: 7.5
Pages read: 1715 + one hour listening to an audiobook

The books I read during the challenge were:

Terrible Typhoid Mary by Susan Campbell Bartoletti
Enchanted Air by Margarita Engle
George by Alex Gino
Bayou Magic by Jewell Parker Rhodes
The Sound of Life and Everything by Krista Van Dolzer
Another Kind of Hurricane by Tamara Ellis Smith (this was the half-book I started this morning!)

and the audiobook I dipped into is Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari

My favorites this year were the nonfiction titles: Terrible Typhoid Mary, Enchanted Air, and The Boys Who Challenged Hitler

All in all, it was a fun challenge year with many great books, although it turned out not to be the very best weekend for us. Fiance lost steam after Friday night and he was feeling a little under the weather, so I'm not sure he got much reading done. Ah, well. Maybe next year! 

I want to give a huge shout out to Pam of MotherReader for hosting the challenge!!! Thanks for all that you have done. :D
