Hour 21: The Doctor Is In

What? You thought this would be the #24in48 where I managed not to draft a post entirely filled with Doctor Who gifs? Pssh. No way. Never going to happen.

David Tennant as Doctor Who leans on a wall and says, "NAH!"

So, since The Doctor is in, as it were, let us know how things are going! Are you hanging in there? Crushing your goals? Struggling and needing a bit of encouragement? Ready for a nap? (I know I am…)

The Thirteenth Doctor gestures and says, "When people need help, I never refuse."

Wherever you are in your #24in48 journey, this is a reminder that you (yes, you!) are doing a great job. Whether you’ve read for 21 seconds, 21 minutes, or 21 straight hours, you’re making reading a priority in whatever way works for you, and that’s an amazing thing!

David Tennant as the Doctor says, "Oh yes!" while wearing 3D glasses.

Be kind to yourself, and give credit where credit is due.

Peter Capaldi as the Doctor says, "Be kind" with dramatic lighting.

And remember…

Matt Smith as the Doctor shouts "You can do it!"

But before you go forth to do the thing, how about some more door prizes?
