Update! It’s strange not dedicating the entire weekend to the challenge, but I’m happy with what I have done so far. I think with blogging/tweeting/cheering people on, I will just hit the 12 hour mark. I’ll be thrilled with that, considering I lost an entire day to previous commitments.

I’m reading in hour-long increments now. So many distractions today!

Had to take the dogs for a run/swim at the park.

Time spent blogging/tweeting/encouraging others/catching up on the challenge:
Total time so far: 10 hours, 39 minutes
Capture the Flag- Fantastic MG mystery. I loved it!
One for the Murphys- Get your tissues ready. Loved the connection to Wicked.
The Tiger Rising by Kate DiCamillo- A Christmas gift from my baby sister, which came highly recommended.
Salvage the Bones: A Novel- I am too much of a dog lover to be able to enjoy this book. I appreciate that it is well-written, but it left me feeling sick to my stomach. Warning: excessive focus on dog fighting.
Sudden Flash Youth: 65 Short-Short Stories (Karen and Michael Braziller Books)- Looking forward to using this with my freshman next year. Some of the stories are really powerful!
Mangaman- A student recommendation. Not my favorite, but enjoyable. I’m not a graphic novel reader, yet.
Trafficked- So, so good. I love watching Law & Order: SVU, and this read like an episode of the show.
The Polar Bear Scientists (Scientists in the Field Series)- I love this series so, so, so very much.
