This weekend I am participating, for the first time, in the annual 48 Hour Book Challenge sponsored by MotherReader. The rules are simple: spend as much time as you can reading and blogging in a 48-hour period between June 3 and June 5th. You can read middle-grade, young adult, graphic novels and adult titles. Many participants set their own personal goals. I am trying for at least twelve hours.

I do not yet have a set list of titles to read. Several possibilities include titles from my school's Literacy Closet.
