HOW LONG HAS IT BEEN SINCE I STARTED? 48 hours!!!!!

take away 5 hours and 35 minutes for my four hours of sleep (i actually timed it and set an alarm), 52 minute long dinner, and 43.5 minutes spent dressing/doing hair/doing makeup/putting books up in pile/brushing teeth (i timed all of this too, then just made it as simple as possible--instead of putting 43 minutes, 51 seconds). i know it might seem hard to believe, but other than this carefully mapped out time, i was walking around with my nose in a book--even when i got up to make coffee. next time i am definitely doing what Liyana did--think audio book!

HOW LONG HAVE I BEEN READING/BLOGGING/NETWORKING? 42 hours and 21.5 minutes

HOW LONG JUST NETWORKING? I spent about 3 hours (2 hours and 58 minutes is what i got, but to be on the safe side I'm just adding two minutes) networking/twittering/visiting ReviewerX, Motherreader, and LiyanaLand. but, as one of the new rules was , "For every five hours reading/blogging, you can add one hour of 48HBC networking. (Or if you prefer to think of it, one out of every six hours can be social time.)" Wait, and before i continue i want to say im really sorry for not putting the tag after all of my tweets . . . i actually didnt even know we had to do it . . . i think i may have missed that part in the directions:(] i feel guilty. So first lets see, subtract 3:00:00 from 42:21:50 = 39:21:50 . . . 5 goes into that evenly 4 times . . . so then ive got four hours of time, and i used three . . . so i can pretty much just put all three of those hours back on . . . which leaves me with 1 extra hour and cant do anything with. am i correct? but if you (meaning Motherreader) feel like it, i wouldnt mind you adding that hour onto my total *smiles inoccently*

ANYWAY, MY FINAL TIME TOTAL JUST READING AND BLOGGING IS: 42 hours and 21.5 minutes

Oh, and not to be offensive to anyone else, but i'd like to say thanks to a few people who commented more than twice on my blog: Liyana (you are just plain cool), Laina (eh. jk lol:[), and Barry Eva--or Storyheart (you rock my socks)! Also, thanks again to Liyanna (live and breathe smexily? i still dont get that) who also was encouraging me to keep on going on twitter! (once again, SO SORRY for not putting the tag for more than like 4 tweets) I actually think i may have added MORE books to my TBR while looking for books to read--all of the ones i didnt get a chance to read are waiting for me. It definitely went down, though!

Also, congratulations to everyone who participated in this challenge at all . . . even if you werent able to read a ton of books, the fact that you really wanted to do it counts. Yays to all of you who went the whole time with no sleep at all (*cough*Liyana*cough*).

oh, and a big yaya to Motherreader for holding this challenge--if only my mother were so cool. (just kidding, Mom, just kidding. "Leah, why would you say that?" mom, its sarcasm. really. "that doesnt sound like sarcasm, honey. how am i supposed to tell?" mom, its really obvious when im being sarcastic. you see, when im being sarcastic, my voice takes on a sarcastic tone, and-- "leah, dont be smart with me." what, do you want me to be dumb? "Leah.")
