Hour 24: Whoa-oh-oh, We’re Halfway There

Listen, I know I’ve been making the same Bon Jovi joke for years at Hour 24. But honestly, is there any better way to mark the halfway point in the ‘thon? I think not.

How’s everyone doing now that we’re halfway through this shindig? It’s midnight on Saturday night/Sunday morning, and you are probably trying to figure out how many hours you’ve got left to hit tomorrow or you’re feeling confident about your numbers from today and thinking you can take it easy Sunday. No matter where you are, just know that Kerry, Kristen, and I are really proud of you guys and you’ve absolutely killed Day One of readathon.
