48 Hour Book Challenge: Starting Line

So the 48HBC didn't go so well for me last year. I started at the last minute with no preparation (I hadn't even heard of it until that weekend), no sleep (I hadn't slept at all the night before, because, well, just because), and then I had to left town for the entire second day to celebrate my 21st birthday. So, not so good.

However, this year, I am much better prepared. I had a good night's sleep, I made no plans for this weekend, and I have a stack of books ready to read. A metaphorical stack I mean. Well, a real stack and a metaphorical one. A stack of real books made of real paper, and a metaphorical "stack" of ebooks on my Nook. So, here I go-

Dreams of Joy by Lisa See
Kindred by Octavia Butler

Physical books-
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
Boneshaker by Cherie Priest
The Likeness by Tana French
The Passage by Justin Cronin

Starting Line: 7:00 PM

  1. You sound ready. I like your reference to your metaphorical books. Enjoy both stacks.
