Can you believe we’re just a few days away from the start of #24in48? (Let’s not even talk about the fact that this is our fifth year doing this whole shebang.) During the last round, we gave away some prize packs to a few lucky readers who managed to finish a full 24 hours of reading and you guys really liked it! So we’re doing it again, thanks to some fantastic prize sponsors. We’ve got four prize packs to give away this time, three for US-based readers and one for international participants.
First of all thanks to our prize sponsors for these amazing donations.
In order to be eligible for one of these prize packs, you must:
- Sign up officially using your name, a valid email, and a URL/username for the platforms you’ll be updating during the ‘thon. (If you need to edit your response to include an actual link or username, you can do so by following the confirmation link you received when you signed up.)
- Be active on those platforms during the readathon.
- Use some method of tracking your time. This can include your phone’s stopwatch function or a digital stopwatch (preferred) or a written time tracker, but your 24 hours must be clearly recorded. (If you need a digital stopwatch, Google “stopwatch.”) *Pro-tip: take a screenshot of your stopwatch every time you pause it, just in case you accidentally reset it instead of restarting it.*
- In the post that goes up at the end of the readathon, you’ll be able to submit your info and proof of 24 hours of reading. You’ll also be asked to note whether you’re US-based or international.
- You’ll have until midnight ET on July 25th to submit this proof, after which the form will be closed.
Obviously, your proof is on the honor system and, while I’m thrilled to be able to offer these prize packages, please don’t abuse it.
