48 Hour Book Challenge--The Final Summary

Number of Books Read: 8
Number of Pages Read: 1,580
Number of Hours Spent Reading: 22 and 3/4
Number of Hours Spent Blogging: 2 hours and 25 minutes

Someone here is disappointed that I didn't make 24 hours of reading. Yeah, yeah, yeah. It's never what you did. It's what you could have done.

This was a satisfying Book Challenge. I feel steeped in the short story. In fact, last week before I even started reading short stories I spent some time reading about writing them in What If? to sort of prepare myself for my weekend.

I'm not sure that I've actually learned anything, though I am very aware that the YA or kidlit short story writer should be concerned with making her piece not just a good short story but good YA/kidlit fiction as well. I just don't know how exactly I should go about doing that.

Nonetheless I'm feeling good tonight.
