I'm officially kicking off the 48 HBC now. (Ms. Yingling is hosting this year and there is still time to join in the fun!) I am going to see how long I can go without sleep but am not fooling myself that I won't have to stop and take naps. I am going to try my best not to, but I like sleep. It would be nice if I didn't have to though because this is the current state of my TBR:
And this doesn't include the e-galleys and recently purchased e-books on my Nook.
So to say that I need this 48 hours is an understatement.
Here is my goal for the first 12 hours:
The Chocolate Rose by Laura Florand
The Problem with Being Slightly Heroic by Uma Krishnaswami
The Cadet of Tildor by Alex Lidell
Secrets of Shakespeare's Grave by Deron R. Hicks
The Kingdom of Little Wounds by Susann Cokal
Honestly, I'll be happy if I make it through half of those by 8:15 AM tomorrow, when I will update. I read at a pretty good pace, but I slow down as I get tired so who knows what will actually be accomplished. Also a couple of these are rather long. And three of them are on my Nook, which also slows me down. I have tea, Pepsi, dark chocolate, ice cream, and a huge bag of Red Vines to help me through. My husband is most helpfully taking the kids on a day trip tomorrow. Bit was rather put out when she learned she was expected to visit her grandparents. She wanted to do the challenge too so she is going to be unofficially joining in when she returns tomorrow.
I'm ready to start.
