24 in 48.png

Hello, all!! As of 11:01 p.m. CST, 24 in 48 is officially HERE (I follow the official start time)! I’m so thrilled to be participating again & once again shooting for the full 24 out of 48 hours. It’s basically my last free weekend of summer, so I’m super excited that the two coincided. I didn’t really make a TBR for today, but I have stacks of library books, including fiction, nonfiction, & graphic novels, as well as an audiobook ready to go! I’m going to try & update this post at least every 4 hours or so & I’ll include challenges/links to my challenge responses, as well as various stats. I’ll also be posting more frequent updates/comments/etc. on Litsy @ReviewsandReadathons & on Twitter @reviewsandRaTs, if you’re interested. If you’re joining, feel free to leave me a link to your update post as well!

Hour 0

Currently Reading: Finishing Reincarnation Blues by Michael Poore & catching up on chapters in The Hobbit for the Litsy #LOTRChapteraDay readalong

Currently Listening: What I Was Doing While You Were Breeding by Kristin Newman

Opening Survey: 

  1. Where in the world are you reading from? Nashville, TN!
  2. Have you done the 24 in 48 readathon before? Yes! This is my 3rd one, I think. 
  3. Where did you hear about the readathon, if this is your first? This isn’t my first, but I originally heard about it on the Facebook page for the Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon. 
  4. What book are you most excited about reading this weekend? I didn’t make a TBR, but I’m really hoping to get to A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir.
  5. Tell us something about yourself. I’m a teacher, and this is my last pretty free weekend before school starts back, so I’m super excited to spend it reading with lots of other book nerds and bookworms!
  6. Remind us where to find you online this weekend. You can find me here at my blog, as well as on Twitter (@reviewsandRaTs) and on Litsy (@ReviewsandReadathons). Happy reading!
