Happy summer, fellow readathon-ers!
I hope that everyone’s warm- (or cold, for you Aussies) weather reading is in full swing and you’ve been plowing through your summer reading lists or beach stacks. Or if you’ve had a bit of a slump because you’re doing ALL THE THINGS, I have the answer.
Our next #24in48 is back! Join us on July 22 & 23rd for a weekend full of reading. It promises to be another great one. (You’ll be happy to know I’ll not be steering the good ship 24in48 alone this round. I recently relocated for a job in another country and finally decided to call in reinforcements. So cheers to Kristen and Kerry who will be manning most of the social media during readathon weekend.)
If you’re new to 24in48, 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.
And that’s it. The format never changes but it’s always an adventure.
Have more questions? There’s an FAQ page for that. Also, in response to some feedback, a more detailed “how to participate” post is coming soon.
Ready to join? Fill out the form below and feel free to list any and all of the places you’ll be hanging out online during the ‘thon. Check out who else is participating. If your entry doesn’t immediately pop in to the spreadsheet, give it a few minutes to populate.
