48 HBC - Final Lap!

I finished For YOUR Eyes Only.  I loved the two very believable main characters, Lucy and Andy.  It's a title I'll add to my collection of books that inspire students to keep writer's notebooks and write poetry!
I made it a little past halfway in Major Pettigrew's Last Stand.
I also listened to 1.5 hours of an audio book (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix) in the car, while preparing meals, and while picking up around the house.

Here are the results of my first 48 HBC:
Time Spent Reading and Blogging :  15.5 hours
(Reading - 13.5 hours   Blogging:  2 hours)
Books Completed:  For YOUR Eyes Only, Inside Out & Back Again
Books in Progress:  Major Pettigrew's Last Stand (halfway through)
Total Pages Read: 688 Pages

Not so memorable, but considering I decided to join Sat. at 7:00 a.m. and quickly created a blog before leaving for a doctor's appointment that morning, I'm pleased!
This event pushed me out of my comfort zone to create something that I would otherwise have spent weeks worrying over!

  1. I love pushing people out of their comfort zones! Really, it's one of my favorite things. (But I'm a Girl Scout leader, so maybe that explains it.) Great job on the reading and on getting started with your blog!
