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.

  1. Oooo, Age of Innocence. Tough book to power through it. Great job!

  2. Great job! You read, read, read! I took a long break on Saturday night because I had previously made plans with friends. But now I wish I hd just read!
