Triumph! 48 Hour Book Challenge Finish Line

The Iron Guy has not only finished his 48 Hour Book Challenge but has triumphed, making this year his personal best. Here's the rundown:

Saturday--started at 8:00 am, read The Boundless and listened to Airborn until 3:00 pm, did an hour of social media, looking and commenting on other blogs for an hour, then listened to Airborn and read Yeah, Yeah, Yeah (a really good book, a fascinating read full of info on the backgrounds on the Beatles that I didn't know--and I grew up in that era!) until 10:00 pm for a total of 14 hours.

Sunday--started at 7:30 am listened to Airborn and read Reflections on the Psalms by C. S. Lewis until 9:00 then started again at 4:30 pm and read and finished The Boundless, listened to more of Airborn and read more of Yeah, Yeah, Yeah and did a little more social media until 11:30 for a total of 9 hours today, bringing the grand total to 22 and 1/2 hours, a new personal best for the Iron Guy. And even though I had only four items this weekend (I must confess that I read slowly), I read/listened to a lot of truly good stuff and will give each item the full review it desreves during the week. Yes, the Iron Guy is always ready to push himself to the utmost so that boys everywhere can learn more about great reads but, hey, that's just what MANLY MEN do!
