48HBC: Finish Line!

So I've finished my 48 Hour Book Challenge. It was a fun weekend and I can't believe I worked 8 hours during it and still managed to read as much as I did. (I was an excellent multi-tasker, I had an audiobook at work!:)

Here's my totals:

Hours Read: 30 hrs. 6 min.
Social Time: 3 hrs. 35 min.
Pages Read: 1573
Books Finished: 6- Lovestruck Summer, Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life, Forget Me Not, Something, Maybe, Something Borrowed (part on audio, rest read), Wings
Books Halfway through: 1-Lament
I also started three books, but they weren't what I was in the mood for, so I will come back and finish these: 3-Being Nikki, Twenty Boy Summer, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw

I really enjoyed the challenge and I needed a weekend to just sit and do nothing but read. It really got me motivated! Plus, I've been in such a reading slump for the past few weeks that reading non-stop really helped me find some great reads!

I think my favorite book out of the ones I read is Something, Maybe by Elizabeth Scott followed closely by Lovestruck Summer. They are perfect summer reads! I'm also really glad I finally read Something Borrowed and am planning to pick up the rest of Emily Giffin's books.

Thank you to my husband and my dog who let me read all weekend! We're going to a bring yoru dog day to the baseball park this evening so I'm looking forward to that.

Good luck to everyone else doing the challenge-you can do it!!!
