MotherReader's two-day reading fest runs from Friday, June 8, 2012 at 7am to Monday, June 11, 2012 at 7am. You get to pick your 48 hours in that time frame. There are rules including your hours must be in a row! But you can do as many or as few as you want!
I'm going to try to for 20 hours this year! I'll start at 8 pm Friday and end 8pm on Sunday. I have a few errands and a graduation party, but should have the time pretty much to myself!

This will be my THIRD year participating in Donalyn Miller's Bookaday fun! Each year the challenge is to average a book each day of your summer vacation. If you are only off for a week - try to read 7 books! The books can be anything you want! Graphic Novels? Check! Picture Books? Check! An homage to Ray Bradbury? Check! Check! Check! You can read one book one day, 7 books a different day! It's so awesomely un-stressful you may read beyond your goal!!!!
I'm officially off from Friday, June 8 to Sunday, August 12, 2012. That's 66 days! So my goal is to read 66 books before I go back to work on Monday, August 13th! So exciting!!!!
If you want to join in the fun of one or both challenges, click the headline links! If you just want to see what people are doing, follow the twitter hashtags #48hbc and #bookaday. And, guess what? #Bookaday lasts forever! We use the hashtag whenever we finish a book!!! So check it out and find some new reading materials and some new friends!
Now I need to gather all the books! All the books!
