Hour 3: Why Hello There!

YOU GUYS. It’s #24in48 weekend, we’re three hours in, and THINGS. ARE. HAPPENING.

(Ok, let’s be real: for some of us, sleep is happening, because it’s the middle of the night. But if you’re awake and reading because you are THE BOSS and/or are in a timezone where it is not the middle of the night, LOOK AT YOU GO!)

If this is your first time joining us for #24in48, or your first time joining in a while, let’s go over some of the basics we get asked a lot as the weekend kicks off:

First, and most importantly, it’s not too late to sign up! You do need to be officially signed up in order to be eligible to win door prizes, challenge prizes, and/or 24-hour completion prizes. And yes, we will check. (Can’t remember if you already signed up? Check the list of July 2019 #24in48 participants here.)

Also, don’t forget to check out the Intro post at Hour 0 to be sure other readers around the world get a chance to know you. And then hop around to other’s intro posts to see who else is participating! Cheers and encouragement from other #24in48 participants are one of the best parts of the whole weekend, so don’t be shy.

We’re trying something new this time around: going Live on Instagram! We have no idea what we’re doing, but we’re doing it anyway! Catch Kristen on Insagram Live at Hour 10 (10am EST!).

We hope you’re all settling in for an amazing weekend of reading and connecting with other readers. Feel free to send us any questions on TwitterInstagram or via email, and we’ll get back to you as quickly as we can. You can also check out the FAQ page for answers to the more commonly asked questions.

Get it? Got it? Good. Now back to the books!

While you’re here! Don’t forget to check back at Hour 9 for our first door prize drawing of the weekend, and be sure to enter the first prize challenge coming up at Hour 6 for even more chances to win a prize!

As in recent ‘thons, we’re aiming to keep track of ALL of the books read during the #24in48 weekend. Enter the titles of all the books you’ve finished in this form, and then pop over to our July 2019 24in48 Goodreads shelf to see what others have been reading during the weekend!
