24 Hour (ish) Check In

6:30 p.m. EST was the 24 hour mark for my participation in Mother Reader's 48 Hour Book Challenge.  I haven't knocked off as many books I had hoped by now but will continue to plug away.  I finished Each Little Bird That Sings by Deborah Wiles, Alive in the Killing Fields: Surviving the Khmer Rouge Genocide by Nawuth Keat and Martha E. Kendall, and The Blue Shoe: A Tale of Thievery, Villainy, Sorcery, and Shoes by Roderick Towney.   I also listened to one CD of The Indigo Notebook by Laura Resau while running some errands today. 

So here are my stats so far:
Time started:  6:30 p.m. Friday
Time now: 7:41 p.m. Saturday
Total pages read:  1,056 (listened to 1 CD)
Time spent reading 15 hours
Time spent blogging/commenting: 2 hours 30 minutes
Books read: 5
Currently reading:  The Birthday Ball by Lois Lowry
On deck:  As Easy as Falling Off the Face of the Earth by Lynne Rae Perkins


  1. Just saw that you're a 4th/5th grade teacher. You'll have to check out my reading list for the challenge which were all books about 11 or 12 yr olds. Happy reading!

  2. Whoa, ALIVE IN THE KILLING FIELDS looks really interesting. I'll have to check that one out.

    Keep up the good work! You're doing great!
