HOUR 24: Meet Me Halfway

Guys, Day 1 of 24in48 is in the books! You’ve hit that mystical midway point, and by the official clock, it is midnight on Saturday night/Sunday morning. By now, you’re probably calculating how many hours you’ve read, how many you’ve got left to read on Day 2, and whether you’ll be able to go to sleep soon (psst, you totally can!).

Hopefully you’ve gotten a ton of reading done and you can cruise tomorrow. Even if you haven’t and are trying to figure out how to squeeze 20 hours of reading in, do yourself a favor and prep for your Sunday reading time, kick your feet up, and ready the coffeemaker for the morning. No matter what Day 1 looked like for you, Kristen, Kerry, and I are all so impressed with you and think you’re absolutely killing it.

  1. But it it’s only 9 pm for me here !!! I started at 11pm locally for me last night so I missed out on the first bit I guess !! Excited to read for another 4 hours and be at 11 ish hours before sleeping 🙂

    I started at 9pm last night (local time) but I had some interruptions (and I went to sleep). I will probably be up later tonight. Not sure if I can keep going long enough to reach 24 in 48, since I only managed 8 hrs in the first 24 hrs. I will see how it goes 🙂

    Rachel – I ACCIDENTALLY WROTE DOWN I won at the 21 hour and I won at the 18 – not sure if that will screw anything up, Sorry Rachel! (I think I was so excited, lol).
