48-Hour Book Challenge

Friday, June 3

11:03 a.m.
I’m looking forward to a weekend of reading on the beach! For this reading challenge, I’m hoping to finish several books that I’m in the middle of right now. In no particular order:

  • The Art of Travel by Alain de Botton
  • A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers
  • The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien
  • The Crossing by Cormac McCarthy
  • A pretty diverse collection! I have no idea much time I’ll have to myself this weekend, but I’m sure I’ll finish at least one or two.

    12:36 p.m.
    I’ve made some progress on Fellowship, but Jack’s here now so we’re headed to the beach!

    Whew, my weekend was even busier than planned! I had a great time on the beach, but I didn’t accomplish nearly as much reading as I’d hoped. But I’m not too upset–after all, the reason I read is to have fun, not to work!

    Maybe I’ll have more luck with reading challenges in the fall, when there are fewer temptations outdoors!
