Readers, we miss you.
Your hosts have been busy busy busy with many non-bookish things of late: a baby, job shifts (of both the good and bad varieties), family demands, the rigors of day-to-day living in the current news cycles, international travel. It’s been a lot. And it’s why we decided to pause our beloved 24in48 readathon this winter, skipping the regularly planned January edition while we figure out what the future of this corner of the bookternet might look like (more to come on that; thanks for your patience!).
I mean. Can you even? One of us MADE THAT.
But in the meantime … we miss you. And as more and more countries are implementing social distancing recommendations (if not actual quarantines), we decided it was time to find comfort in books and the community that loves them.
Which brings us to the Social Distancing Readathon.
Wash your hands.
March 21 & 22.
It’s that simple. No prizes. No hourly challenges. No requirements. Just a chance to reconnect with this amazing bookish community (online! no hand sanitizer required!), read some good books, and talk about them with other readers.
This spontaneous Social Distancing Readathon will take place next weekend, (officially) starting 12 a.m. EST on March 21st. You know the drill by now; adjust your timezone as desired, and read with us on Saturday (21st) and Sunday (22nd) from wherever you are in the world.
So, who’s in? Sign up here. Connect with us on Instagram and Twitter, and we’ll use the hashtag #StayHome24in48 all weekend.
Plan on reading—with us—a whole lot.
We’ll see you on the internet, where digital hugs have no virus transmission risk.
