Guys, the 24 in 48 readathon is back. I mean, I’m sure you guessed that by the title of this post, but it’s back this weekend and I have decided that I’m going to (kinda) take part! I did this last year at around the same time for the first time, and although I haven’t read as much this year as I did last January, I am looking forward to putting aside some time to read some quality books! Unlike last January, I am off this weekend, so I will be free to actually read (life aside).
So with that in mind, what is it, how does it work, and who created this? Well, 24 in 48 has all the details, but simply, track reading as much as you can with the aim of it being 24hrs in 48hrs over the weekend of the 27th and 28th January. It’s low key, with few rules and even less pressure. You can read more, you can read less, it’s up to you. Once you’ve committed, sign up and track your own/other progress all over the internet.
I tend to get a bit distracted when I’m readathon-ing, so I’ve created a provisional TBR that I am hoping to read/finish over the weekend. Life events this week will mean that I know going in I will not read close to the 24hrs that the readathon aims for, so I’ve decided to aim for a more reasonable 12hrs, and hope that doesn’t impact that more important events going on in my life.
