July 2018 #24in48 Readathon Sign-ups are Here!

Happy summer reading season, friends! We are back with another #24in48 readathon on July 21-22, 2018 and we cannot wait for you to join us. Back in January, we welcomed close to 1,900 readers and we hope each and every one of you comes back for an excellent weekend of reading.

It’s a perfect way to hang out in a hammock (if it’s not too hot where you are) or chill in the A/C with a stack of great books. However you choose, we hope you’ll spend your weekend reading with us and your 2,000 closest friends.

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, just as we did in January, we’re still accepting donations to help us send more prizes out to international winners through the PayPal donate button on the sidebar. And if you’d like to donate prizes directly, send us an email at 24in48readathonofficial@gmail.com.

Ready to join? Fill out the form below (or if you’re having trouble, click through here) 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.

And you can follow the readathon in all the normal places. We’re on TwitterInstagramFacebook, and Litsy (@24in48) and you can use the official hashtag #24in48 everywhere to keep up with your fellow readathon-ers.

  1. IM SO EXCITED FOR THIS! I’m not going to be at home during that weekend, but I’ll still aim for that 24-hour mark! Been looking forward for this since last year, since I couldn’t join in during the January one

      Hi Linda, I don’t see your name in the sign-up sheet. You might want to give it another try and let us know if you have any trouble submitting. Also make sure you’re using the official hashtag #24in48!

    This is my first time participating, and I accidentally signed up twice (I somehow missed my name when I checked the participants list)–is there a way I can delete the second one?

    Well here’s a thing I didn’t know about until this morning and delightfully has crossed my radar _just in time_ for me to a) realise I have no plans for this weekend and b) sign up to join in. Now I can spend all day delightfully fretting about what to read! So… what are you doing this weekend?
