MotherReader's Fourth Annual 48 Hour Book Challenge

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.

Read the full rules here.

See the list of prizes here.

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!

Thanks for the plug. No one can come to my house either - unless they plan on folding the laundry sprawled out on the couch. Hey, but at least I got out of DMV without too much trouble. Hope you did too.

Maybe we should have a laundry folding party! Glad you got out of the DMV ok. Our DMV has a number system, and our number was 188. After waiting an hour and a half, they called 187 and then right after that, the announcement came on, "The DMV is now closed." My son was about to flip out, but then they said that they'd still serve everyone who was already in the building.

Have fun with the challenge this weekend!
