48 Hour Book Challenge - Here We Go!
OK peeps, I have a towering TBR stack and a cozy place to read, so I'm all set to start off MotherReader's 7th Annual 48 Hour Book Challenge. I'm so excited to be a part of the challenge this year - last year I hadn't started up my blog yet, so I missed out, but this year I'm ready to roll.
There are a couple of potential stumbling blocks for me, though:
1. Sleep. As in, haven't had much for several days. Ah, the perils of having a three-year-old who wakes up at 3 a.m. ready to roll. I'll tell you what folks, this is not going to be an all-night proposition for me, that's for sure. Even if I wanted it to be, I'm just too dog-tired.
2. Work. I have a shift tomorrow morning, albeit a short one. If I'd been thinking, I'd have downloaded an audiobook for that timeframe. . . hmmm, maybe that's not too late. . . .
3. Date Night. OK, I know what you're thinking - why not just reschedule? Well, reference the aforementioned three-year-old plus the fact that with our school and work schedules, we just NEVER get out anywhere together. Like, haven't in months. So there's no way I'm turning down an offer of babysitting for tomorrow night - guess I'll just have to make up for it on Sunday!
All of these factors taken into consideration, I'm still ready, willing, and happy to be plunging in for the challenge. I'm committing at the 12-23 hour level and looking forward to whittling down my TBR pile by even a few titles. I'm thrilled to be able to participate in this event with so many fantastic book bloggers of all stripes. Are you joining in??
