Update 2: 48 Hour Book Challenge
I’m reading for the Joplin Schools Tornado Relief Fund (Joplin Schools – Tornado Info). I’ve finished two books, ten dollars per book — that’s twenty dollars already! You can help, too. I’m donating ten cents per person who comments on my blog during the 48 Hour Book Challenge, so leave a comment. I haven’t added them up, but there’s a bunch already and I am happy for more!
I am at the 24 hour mark of the Sixth Annual 48 Hour Book Challenge and here are my stats so far:
Reading: 6 hours and 15 minutes
Blogging: 1 hour
Socializing: 30 minutes
Number of books finished: 2
This morning, I finished Savvy Auntie by Melanie Notkin. I skimmed a lot since my youngest nephew is 15, long past the age for me to need to know how to deal with diaper changes and toddler tantrums. But, I’m going to hold on to this. Who knows? Maybe I’ll be a great-aunt someday.
Next up, I’m going to go comment on other blogs for awhile. Then, I’ll take a look at The Little Women Letters by Gabrielle Donnelly.
You’re doing great so far – and what a worthy cause to be reading for. My heart goes out to all those impacted by the tornadoes.
I’ve also passed the 24-hour mark. Sounds that last book wasn’t really a success. But still, at least you know where to find the information if you need it.
Wow, Joy, you are doing so well! I’m very intrigued by the Little Women Letters book. I’m assuming this is a tie-in with Louisa May Alcott? I look forward to your impression of the book. Keep reading. You are doing great.
What a wonderful thing to do, Joy. Good luck!! I am so happy to see librarians doing so much for the folks in Joplin. The annual MOBIUS Conference is this coming week and they are collecting gift & store cards for library staff at Missouri Southern State University and Joplin Public Library who lost their homes.
