24in48 Readathon! 📚
Calling All Bookworms!
Every six months, 24in48 hosts a 48 hour readathon. This weekend it’s that time again! (January 27th-January 29th) If you check out their website “…this is the basic gist: beginning at 12:01am on Saturday morning and running through 11:59pm on Sunday night, participants read for 24 hours out of that 48-hour period. You can split that up however you’d like: 20 hours on Saturday, four hours on Sunday; 12 hours each day; six four-hour sessions with four hour breaks in between, whatever you’d like.”
Last year was the first time I participated and loved it! I didn’t reach 24 hours of reading, but still had a great time. I plan on snuggling up with my dog and some blankets and getting lost in fantasy land (except for a biography I have on Walt Disney…but hey, everything about Disney is magical 😉).
Check out their Instagram ( @24in48 ), Twitter (@24in48readathon) or their website mentioned in the link above (24in48.com). There will also be prizes and fun activities posted every three hours! If you want to be involved and considered for the prizes, sign up on their website, make sure your social media is set to “public” and use the hashtag #24in48.
Last year I used my stopwatch on my phone to keep track of time read but would also take a screenshot of the time if I took a break (in case the app accidentally closed).
Happy reading! You can keep track of what I’m reading if you’d like on the right side of my blog under “GoodReads” (I’ll be updating as I finish books!). Let me know what you’re reading and if you have any suggestions!
