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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and Litsy (@24in48) and you can use the official hashtag #24in48 everywhere to keep up with your fellow readathon-ers.
