Hello, hello, hello, readers! I hope you can hear me over the sound of the coffee percolating, or the kettle boiling, or whatever other morning ritual you’re in the middle of.

By the official timeclock, it’s 6AM on day two, my favorite day of the readathon. Day two feels a bit cozier, as we all hunker down and try to hit 24 hours (or whatever our personal goals are). Currently, Kerry and I are hunkered on a couch in her house in the woods, buried under blankets and dogs and cats and consuming all the coffee.
Like I said last year, over the years, your three hosts have progressively retreated from everyone who isn’t ‘thonning on 24in48 weekend…and I’m not mad about it. This community and these weekends are our favorites; reading for the sake of reading with readers the world over is the most important aspect of this weekend. You’re here because you want to read and connect, and that’s a beautiful win, no matter how many hours you read or don’t.

All smooshy feelings aside, it’s time to kick off our day two challenges! Today, we’re gonna follow a bit of a theme: book recommendations.
First up, we want to hear about your favorite series. YA, SFF, Mystery, Kidlit, it doesn’t matter. We want to see and hear about your favorite series, and what makes it so wonderful.
