July 2019 #24in48 Prize Pack Winners

Holy moly, readathoners! Can you believe another ‘thon has come and gone? We’re so amazed by the incredible turnout last weekend – nearly 2,500 of you signed up and showed up for the readathon, which is particularly astounding since the summer 24in48 is notoriously smaller than our winter event. But you guys blew past our previous July event records without even blinking.

And if that weren’t enough, 235 of you submitted proof of having read 24+ hours (and I do mean + – some readers clocked well over the 24-hour goal over the course of the weekend). Thank goodness we had more prize packs than ever to give away this time.

So without further ado, let’s give away some prize packs. (As a reminder, here’s what’s in each of these packs.)

Congrats to all our winners and to everyone that finished a full 24 hours of reading! And congrats to all of you that participated, whether you hit 24 hours or not. Winners, expect an email from us shortly.

If you won another prize during the readathon last week, we are in the process of working through all of your entries and will be processing those soon. Please be patient as it takes a little while to get all your mailing addresses sent over to our publishing partners and/or your prizes packaged up and sent out (depending on what you won).

Thank you again to everyone that joined us last weekend for another great #24in48. We had the best time and hope you did too.

Hour 48: It’s The End.

Amazing. You guys are absolutely amazing. We’ve hit the end of this round of #24in48 and are still counting up all the posts and comments and prize entries and emojis and gifs you all shared this weekend but suffice to say it was a successful weekend all around.

Whether you hit 24 hours or not, we all spent a little more time with our nose in a book and isn’t that the best way to spend a weekend?

We have some winners to announce from the Hour 42 Your Favorite One Challenge. If you see your name below, keep an eye out for an email from us to claim your prize!ย :

Hour 45: Feeling All the Feels

It’s Hour 45, which means it’s my last official check-in with you all for the weekend. And you know what that means: ALL THE FEELINGS.

A woman in front of a Christmas tree waves her hands with the caption "Feelings. So many feelings right now."

Seriously, though, this weekend is an incredible testament to the power of books and reading to bring people together in ways that are still mind-blowing to me, even after many, many years of doing this thing. I know I speak for my fellow co-hosts when I say we are so, so grateful for each and every one of you who participate, who share this event with friends and family, who cheer each other on over the course of the weekend. For reals. It’s amazing.

The cast of Saved by the Bell does a cheer with the caption "Friends Forever!"

Don’t worry, there will be more feels at Hour 48 as we wrap this wonderful weekend up, and there’s still three whole hours left to read read read read read!

Hour 42: Your Favorite One Challenge

hour 42

Do you hear the people sing, singing the song of happy readers, it is the music of a group who is sad the last challenge is here, but ready to rock this thing… (I don’t know, Les Mis just felt right, I’m running low on coffee).

We’ve got one last challenge for you, 24in48ers, and this one is brought to you by our partners at Flatiron Books and Algonquin.

Hour 39: Get Up and Go Go Go!

Here’s the thing about reading: it’s (usually) a fairly sedentary activity. So if you’re finding yourself fading, might we suggest you get up and move around a bit? Do some stretches, take a walk (bring an audiobook along if you want to try to cram in more reading time while you’re out and about!), find a new spot to curl up with your book. It’s easy to get lost in the pages and forget about that crink in your neck until it’s too late to stop the crink from becoming a full-blow crank.

Andre the Giant in the Princess Bride shouts "Everybody move!"
“Everybody move!”

Ok, now that we’ve all stretched a bit, why don’t we reward ourselves with a few more door prize winners? This round of prizes is brought to you by Little Brown and Company, and our winners will win a copy of one of the following titles:

๐ŸŽ The Vexations, ๐ŸŽ Chaos, ๐ŸŽ Summer of ’69, ๐ŸŽ A Door in the Earth

For our international winners, you’ll be able to pick between a $15 gift card to your choice of Amazon, Book Depository, or Wordery.

Congrats to each of you! Keep an eye out for an email from us to claim your prize.
