Am I crazy?

I've decided to join MotherReader's 48-hour book challenge. I'm a pretty fast reader, but I've never actually tried to read a lot of books in a short period of time. Still, I went to the library the other day and brought back 14 books (just went and counted) and I only have them for two weeks, so I might as well kickstart the process. Not to mention the fact that I need to re-read the Harry Potters before too long.

I'll start as early as I can tomorrow and stop 48 hours later, presumably some time on Sunday. The only real problem is that I have several knitting projects I'm itching to work on, and I have never successfully knit and read at the same time.


  1. Is it to promote reading? Sounds like fun.

  2. I know I'm lookinf forward to replacing my academic reading with other kinds of reading this summer. Though I doubt I'd get very far in 48 hours, these days...

  3. Ha me too. I was just wishing I could read, knit, sleep and eat all at the same time. That would get a lot done, wouldn't it? But I might miss out on some of the enjoyment.... I guess I'll just try to focus on reading this weekend.
