Hmm, Interesting

I've heard about this little event before but never participated. Now, I'm wondering if the time is right.

It's Mother Reader's Third Annual 48 Hour Book Challenge. Check out her blog post for rules, information and sign-ups. The challenge will last from June 6-8. There are prizes!

I was hesitant at first to take on this challenge for a few reasons. I am not a speed reader and worry that I wouldn't get very many books/pages read in the 48 hours. Also, do I really want to compete in reading...hmmm. Finally, I did consider the fact that I do have 3 children and surely they would be needing a bit of attention over the weekend.

But, there are prizes, and from the sound of it, some of them seem to be right an original drawing by Mo Willems (well, that was last year, but I hear this year's prizes will be even better). Ooh, also, there are door prizes, so it's not all about speed and short books.

So, is there anyone out there with a "Heck yah! Let's do it!"?

At this point I'm curious, but not committed...not yet, that is. Anyone, anyone?

Yes, it does sound interesting, but I'm not sure I'd be able to commit to something like that for a whole weekend either! :) Do you actually hang out there? (Wherever it is?) How do they know people really finished the books? Where is it held? (I'm sure I could find these answers on the website, but I thought I'd let you do the legwork.) Haha. :) Anyway, interesting post--let me know what you find out.

I could have done it last year, but this year I'm reading retarded. I don't know what my problem is.

Catherine, I think you have just set reading aside so that you can focus on growing things and gardening. There will be plenty of time for reading.

I LOVE YOU said...
