This weekend’s extravaganza

Thursday, June 15th, 2006

Okay, so maybe not extravaganza, but at least its sort of interesting. I read this blog called Momchops and she mentioned that we should do this 48 Hour Book Challenge so I took her up on it. This weekend, June 16 – 18, is the Book Challenge. I don’t have time to read normally (due to the 14 month old) but I am going to push myself to read something. Anything. I’m a librarian for goodness sake! Unfortunately, timing couldn’t be worse, because Sunday is Father’s Day, so I’ll have to spend a little time honoring the fathers in my life.

Right now here are the books that I have checked out on my card. You will notice that most are children’s and young adult books. There may be one adult book in there, but I doubt I will get time to read it.

Time out by Helen Cresswell
The ordinary princess by M. M. Kaye
Hope by LouAnn Gaeddert
Little Long-nose by Wilhelm Hauff
Falcon and the Charles Street Witch by Luli Gray
Jennifer Government by Maxx Barry
Abarat by Clive Barker
Snow flower and the secret fan : a novel by Lisa See
A dog’s life : the autobiography of a stray by Ann M Martin
The summer tree by Guy Gavriel Kay
Runaways (vol 2 & 3) by Brian K Vaughan
Teach yourself visually crocheting by Kim P. Werker

After the 48 hours are up, as per the rules of the challenge, I have to give descriptions/reviews of each book I finish.

As a side note, I’m going to post this on my kids and teens blogs and offer a prize to those who read and send me reviews of what they read. Of course I’m sure that nothing will come of it, but we’ll see.
Wish me luck!
