This Is Humbling

The winner of The 48 Hour Book Challenge only read three hours longer than I did, but she read twice the number of books and three times the number of pages.

Yeah, sure, but it's the quality of my reading that mattered.

I begin training for next year's challenge tonight.

You see, now I wasn't going to say that.

I think you did a great job. You carved out time for the task and more than met your goal. And participated in something different, and dare I say, a little bit cool.

Plus, out of the eight books I read, yours was my favorite. So, smile Happy Kid.

If you read my closing summary, you'll see that my reading was fueled by an unquenchable thirst to get back to something I so desperately miss. Once I got going, I was unable to stop! It was like that giddy feeling of rolling down a grassy hill on a warm summer evening surrounded by fireflies!

And by the way, I loved The Hero of Ticonderoga.

Yes, MotherReader, I definitely feel I did very well this past weekend because of all the good attention Happy Kid! received.

zg--My reading was fueled by obsession.

Thanks for the mention of Hero. I had a little Ethan Allen obsession going for a while when I was working on that one.
