Good morning, readathoners! It’s 6am on the east coast and chances are like, 50/50 that I’m still in bed right now. Because this is the readathon for people who like to sleep! So I’m sure I’ll be rolling out of bed soon enough, grabbing my coffee and settling in for Day 2. Is there anyone that stayed up all night reading? Or most of the night?
You might be thinking that Day 2 is the easy day, right? You’ve got a routine figured out, you’re settling into a rhythm, and Sunday will breeze by. I warn you now: Sunday is the secret killer of 24in48 ambitions. Naps come much more easily and the relative success of your reads on Day 1 can have unintended consequences for Day 2. Did you find that the books you read were bananas good? Sunday books could suffer by comparison. Find yourself in a slump where nothing really clicked? That slump could continue into Sunday.
I’m not trying to scare you, but be warned: Come into Sunday with a plan and an understanding of the pitfalls. Or don’t, and let the day play out as it will. Either way, enjoy yourself! the 24in48 is all about making time to read in big chunks, which you’ve done. Congrats! You win!
Stay tuned both here, and on Instagram and Litsy for more amazing giveaways and challenges all day. And you can still leave a comment with your survey answers on the Hour Zero post to win!
Happy Day Two reading, ‘thoners!
