48 Hour Book Challenge: Completed (Summary)

I am happy to announce that I have finished the 48 Hour Book Challenge. While I didn't pull in some of the amazing numbers as some of the other participants, I am proud of what I did.

My original plan was to continue reading tonight until I completed Anne Frank but I am exhusted. And that books takes a lot of energy, emotional. I just don't think that I have it in me to continue tonight.

Time Elapsed: 48 hours
