Finish Line

27 books
6479 pages
31 hours

It's a weird thing to do this challenge.
One book after the next.
Liberating and indulgent, sure.
But also gluttonous and shallow.

There's not time to savor the story a while.
Or to recall a particular passage or phrase.
Or to wipe away a tear.
Or to seek out someone to read a piece aloud to.

I want to talk more about all of the books I read for the challenge -
but now is not the time,
as time is up.

48 hours goes by very quickly.

Too many books, too little time.

Your brain must be fried!! I couldn't have read that many even if I didn't sleep.

Congratulations to my namesake

there will be new titles to add
to my book list! Bring them on!

I've enjoyed the time this morning perusing your 48 hour book list and beyond. I felt I was sharing your "reading nook" ... a very inviting and comfotable space.
