The 48 Hour Book Challenge – Hour 12 Report


Progress report as we near the eleventh hour (on the clock, but twelve hours since I began):

Hours Read: 7.75 hours

Blogged: 1.00 hour

Written:  4.00 hours (early start for JuNoWriMo and Kiwi Writers SocNoC in anticipation of today’s events)

DOUBLE VISION by F.T. Bradley is a quick read. And I’m reading as quick as I can with one eye on the 19 month-old, the other on the 3 1/2 year-old… wait. I only have the two. Eyes, that is. The kids are so speedy, they blur past me sometimes. Yeah, so I appreciated the fast pace and short chapters. I barely got through one when I’d have to put the book down to help one of them with something. I have no problem shunning my own daily sustenance (and I’ve done that before when I did back-to-back writing sprints). I suppose it would be a faux pas in my Godmother/Aunt duties if I neglected to feed and care for The Keysmashing Tots (TKT) throughout the day.

Two things I’ve learned so far:

1) I really like this book.

2) I really need to take a speedreading course. When I see #48HBC updates, I’m in awe. People are nearing double digits on their books today alone. Others are reading in excess of 100 pages in under an hour or like our fearless leader–TWENTY books today? Please teach me the Ninjaness of it all.

Tomorrow I am sans TKT. I shall forge ahead and actually try and make a dent in my TBR list. Come on, Tonette, you barely gave it a ding!

That said, I did finish other books, as well, that were not a part of my line-up. All progress is good, yes? 🙂

I shall continue through the night and into the wee hours. I can cram a boatload before having to return to my beloved TKT Sunday.
