48 Hour Book Challenge: Finished Books List!

Here's the list of books completed by the 48-Hour Challenge Participants. I culled them from everyone's blogs, so if I missed any, let me know and I will update the list! I did not include the picture books and board books that some of the alternates read - but if you are looking for some great recommendations in those genres, stop by those blogs.

Incredibly, there was only ONE BOOK that more than one participant read - two of us read Betty Birney's The Seven Wonders of Sassafras Springs. Many read books from the same authors:Caroline Cooney and Beverly Cleary and Helen Frost and Sharon Creech were represented -- but in terms of most appearances by an author with the most unduplicated titles - definitely Hilary McKay and her Casson clan.

What a fine array of books, too! Books in verse, series books, non-fiction, autobiography, fantasy, graphic novels, classics - a true reader's buffet!

Thanks everyone for reading and posting so many great suggestions for those more leisurely weekends when we are looking for a new book to savor!

Hey, cool! Thanks for lining them all up! Now I know what else to track down and read! And funny thing, I just finished the McKay books weekend before last! And they are indeed my favorite family of the week thus far.

Congratulations on your win!
