So, what are you doing this weekend? No, I'm not inviting you over. Not that I don't want to see you, but, well, my house is kind of a mess. But if you aren't doing anything, how about spending the weekend reading? What could be better? Oh, how about prizes, too?
It's not too late to sign up for MotherReader's Fourth Annual 48 Hour Book Challenge. In essence, you just commit to reading as much as possible over any 48 period from Friday to Monday morning, review the books you read, and keep track of your time and other stats. There are prizes for the winners and also some randomly drawn prizes for participants.
If, like me, you can't participate this year, you can follow along on participants' blogs, on Facebook, and on Twitter with the hashtag #48hbc . Some bloggers are also blogging for a favorite cause, so anyone who can't participate might consider sponsoring a blogger.
Good luck to all the participants, and have fun!
