Yes, indeedy! MotherReader is hosting the third annual 48 Hour Book Challenge this weekend. (Not to be confused with the Bookmark Challenge.) MotherReader is–say it with me–one of the blogs I read regularly. Do you get the idea I read a lot of blogs?
What is the 48 Hour Book Challenge? You mean, besides a heap of fun and an excuse to spend two days reading, reading, and reading some more? Well, it’s that and a chance to mingle with other bookish folks on your blog and/or their blogs, and a chance to win prizes for reading, reading, and reading some more. Read…win prizes. Hmm. As if an excuse to read for 48 hours isn’t prize enough.
Rules and sign-up to participate are here. Note on that list which blogs will be posting reviews. If you don’t have your own blog, you can hang out with them; although you may need a blog to be eligible for prizes. I’ll let someone else take that up with MotherReader.
Unfortunately, I can’t participate as a reader/blogger, but you know I can’t resist a Challenge, so I’ve offered to provide a prize. Depending on someone else’s schedule, I may be able to pull off 24-36 hours on Sunday/Monday, but that’s the best I could do, and it’s possible that won’t even be possible.
First, there was/is the TNNA NeedleArts Market this weekend. When I first learned the dates of this year’s 48 Hour Book Challenge, I expected to be in Columbus at the trade show, but then that plan changed. Second, there was/is a two-day needlework class with my embroidery guild, Arctic Needleworkers, and that is what I will be doing on Friday and Saturday.
Which brings me to this: If one of you wants to participate in the Book Challenge, but you don’t have a blog to post reviews, maybe you can borrow this one. I bet we could figure out how to make you a guest blogger here.
So how’s that for a Challenge?!
