Hour 9: I’m Totally Awake

HELLO AGAIN. It’s time for another check-in (and door prizes!).

Most likely, I (Kristen) am just waking up because my dogs were too cuddly and warm and leaving my bed seemed difficult, and I’m stumbling into the shower to become human. Rachel doesn’t move until she coffees, I don’t coffee until I shower. Kerry has usually run 30 miles or something by now. We all have our morning processes.

Now that I’m awake, I’ll say good morning! We’re about 20% of the way through this thing, and it’s All. Going. Great.

How do I know that?! You’re here, you’re reading, and those are two of my favorite things. This readathon means a lot to me, and watching it grown and morph into an even better version of itself every year is one of my greatest joys.

What are you reading? How are you doing? Are you just getting started, or rolling on into hour nine like a champ? Let us know in the comments, or tag us in a post on social media using #24in48!

Also, don’t forget to complete the Hour 6 Reading Nostalgia Challenge (winner announced in Hour 12!), and I’m gonna give y’all another reminder about the Intro Survey! And now…the door prize winners!

    I am currently 4 hours and 14 minutes in and have less than 100 pages left in my book. I am reading An Echo Through the Snow by Andrea Thalasinos. So much fun!

  2. I’m up and at ‘em. I took a short nap but have been back at it for an hour. I am currently reading a book called Bird of Paradise written by a local Tulsa author who happens to be a friend. I’ve got my breakfast and third cup of coffee by me and am moving on!

    I started reading at midnight, made it for a few hours, then stopped for the night. I’ve been reading for two more hours this morning, and have finished one book

    Finished my first read, and now am onto Morning Star by Pierce Brown. It’s ironic that you keep using The Good Place gifs because I started it yesterday, which I’m regretting because now I really, really want to binge it 😣


  5. Naomi Wilson says:

    I’m reading As Bright As Heaven by Susan Meissner and I’ve read for an hour and 10 minutes so far but it’s only 8:15am. Good luck everyone!


  6. sarambrink says:

    I’m about two hours into reading, and about to finish my first read — A Streetcar Named Desire. This play has been on my list for so long!


  7. Madelyne Anweiler says:

    I woke up earlier than planned so my count is at 3 and half hours so far. I’m reading “Are you there God, It’s Me Margaret” and “Me, My Hair, And I”. Back to reading :)!

    I just got up, heading over to Starbucks and then I am headed home to pick out my first read. I still haven’t made a tbr yet.

    On my second book and feelin good! About to start my second cup of coffee, too 🙂

    Sidenote: I just discovered a Canadian company that does monthly book + bookish treats boxes. It would be awesome if they offered to donate prizes for a future 24in48! https://sweetreadsbox.com/

    I’m slowly getting started this morning. Just went over the hour mark and I’m reading The Murder of Roger Ackroyd for my first book.


  11. Vanessa L. says:

    Good morning! I woke up at 5am and am at 1 hour so far. I am re-reading the Harry Potter series and am on Book 4. I’m also reading A Prayer for Owen Meany. This is fun!


  12. Kristine M says:

    I am currently at an hour and 45 mins and 35 % into I Am Watching You by Teresa Driscoll, but i have no plans today so I am hoping to get more than half my hours in today so I can relax a bit more tomorrow


  13. Doing some sleeping and a little reading but will gear up slowly. the cold is not my friend after living in Mexico and now, living back in Delaware. Into the 100’s of Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee, a long way to go!


  14. Just waking up (I’m on the west coast) but I managed to get in two hours of reading before I fell asleep last night. Now to settle in for a long luxurious day of my favorite things: books, snacks, blankets, books, hot drinks, toasty fire, and books 🙂


  15. Windy Dozier says:

    On hour 4 of reading so far. Finished two books and started another. Just switched to an audiobook to rest my eyes. I’m determined to make it to 24 hours this time!!!


  16. Nichole Ovington says:

    I am just waking up and jumping in. Posting for the Hour 6 challenge, making hot chocolate (because I am out of coffee) and going to cozy up with HP 1 🙂


  17. I read 3 hours last night. Got one small book finished that I had already started. I got a little sleep. Now I am about to start up reading again and finish up a second (average sized) book that I also had already started before the challenge started.


  18. Julie says:

    Started with Wedding Cake Murder earlier this morning, and just finished an audible listen if Nick Offerman’s Paddle Your Own Canoe. Love his hilarious but real nature!


  19. Jumped right into the day with a non fiction tome about Mary Queen of Scots. I figured I’d tackle this one while I was still fresh and save the thrillers for later when I need the boost


  20. I was quite fresh till the 8th hour and then sleeplessness and hunger pangs kicked in &I cooked myself a delicious french toast.
    I started with non fiction and managed to finish 1/4th of it and then tackled Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern and read some 202 pages. Now starting with the third book, ‘The Bear and The Nightingale’ by Katherine Arden.
