24 in 48 Read-a-thon


It’s a challenge. I’m not sure I can do it. But I’m going to try.

The 24 in 48 Read-a-thon is a challenge to read for 24 hours in a 48 hour span.

The read-a-thon is January 27 (today) through January 28 (tomorrow). The official start time is 12:01am ET on Saturday and the official stop time is 11:59pm ET on Sunday. I’m participating in Mountain time (which translates to 10:01 pm MT on Friday to 10 pm MT on Sunday.

I’m going to try and and read as much as I can, but I also have a bunch of life happening this weekend.

Pro-tip from the 24 in 48 website: It really doesn’t matter if you make the 24-hour goal. The real goal is to dedicate time to reading. (That being said, there are prizes available for those who do make the goal.)

Tracking my read-a-thon participation.

Participation in the 24 in 48 includes using a timer or stopwatch to accurately track how much time I read for. I’m going to use the stopwatch function on my iPhone.

Pro-tip from the 24 in 48 website: each time you stop the stopwatch, take a photo or screenshot of it just in case you accidentally reset it.

Follow along with me as I read!

I’ll be posting about my progress on Twitter all weekend. So will lots of other people! It’s another fun way to build community among readers.
