Our own Pam "MotherReader" Coughlan is taking a well-deserved rest this year from hosting the 48-Hour Book Challenge--handing it off for the nonce to Karen "Ms." Yingling, also a familiar face around the Cybils, and this past year's Middle Grade Fiction Chair.
In case you've never heard of the 48-Hour Book Challenge, what it is, in essence, is a fun opportunity to Drop Everything And Read...and blog. In Ms Yingling's words, "My favorite thing about the challenge (after the lack of housework, of course) is connecting with other bloggers and seeing what is on everyone else's TBR pile."
This year it's going to be held June 7-9 (which coincides nicely with my book birthday on June 8th!), and to find out more about prizes and other stuff, check out Ms. Yingling Reads.
