48 Hour Book Challenge: Starting Line and Updates

Final update:  As you can see below, I didn't update at all.  I ended up falling asleep fairly early for a Saturday night and Sunday I was really under the weather, which explains my early night on Saturday.  Did not get any reading done.  Hopefully, I will do better next year.

I had no idea this was going on this weekend until Courtney posted about it over at her blog, Stiletto Storytime.  I've participated in this one before, but I think I may have missed it last year.  Hosted by MotherReader, the 48 Hour Book Challenge is a read/blog-a-thon, from the host's blog: "which includes reading, blogging, and some connecting (for every five hours reading/reviewing you can take one hour of blog reading, tweeting, and general bookish socializing)."  I'm not really sure what I'll be doing.  I have some reading to catch up on and I have some blogging business to take care of.  I was going to start this morning, but I decided to wait until after my Saturday outing so I'm not doing the full 48 hours, but that's okay.  =O)  What I will probably be reading:

Edit:  I wrote this post earlier so it would be ready when I returned home tonight, but I have a little change of plans in the reading.  I picked up the book Picnic at Hanging Rock by Joan Lindsay today at the library and to treat myself and celebrate my first week on my new job this past week, I'm throwing caution to the wind and reading it first! Yes, I like to live dangerously.  LOL!

Middlemarch by George Eliot
The King Must Die by M. Gemini Sasson
A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin
The Edible Woman by Margaret Atwood

I will most likely be dabbling around in each, but who knows.

Beginning stats:
time: 9:00pm

I apologize for word verification, but I turned it off and had close to 50 spam comments within 12 hours (nobody has time for that) so I had to turn it back on. Sorry!
