Merry Christmas, happy holidays, and happy end of 2017! I don’t know about you guys, but this year was kind of a dumpster fire, both personally and in the world at large. I’m ready to start fresh in 2018 and what better way to do that than blocking off a whole weekend to read?
Setting reading goals for the new year? Taking on a new reading challenge? The 24in48 is here to help. Last summer 1400 readers joined in on the festivities and I’m so excited to jump start the year with all of you again. I’ll personally be using the weekend to kickstart two challenges for the year, Read Harder (as always), and the new Reading Women challenge.
The next #24in48 will be taking place on Jan. 27-28, 2018! And I hope you can join us for a weekend full of warm blankets, snuggly pets, stacks of books, and blessed alone time.
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.
