Sleep is probably a good idea right now...
Beginning at 12:01am on Saturday morning and running through 11:59pm on Sunday night, readers read for 24 hours out of that 48 hour period. You can split that up however you’d like: 20 hours on Saturday, 4 hours on Sunday; 12 hours each day; six 4 hour sessions with 4 hour breaks in between; whatever you’d like.
So much for eight hour updates throughout the weekend. I didn't even spend time reading the first half of the day after my last update, and instead immersed myself in food and television. You always end up finding other things to do when you've made plans to do specific things.
Meanwhile, because I'd read zero pages of any book by the time my next planned update was supposed to go up, I decided just to skip it altogether and wait until I'd finished reading a good portion of All Night Long... the next thing I know, midnight is creeping up on me.
Anyway, I jumped right back into All Night Long, and as I'd predicted, being a Jayne Ann Krentz book and all, I just plowed through a good portion of it, reading 189 pages in 3:32:07, according to my stopwatch. This brings me to a total of 312 pages read in 5:20:50.
5 hours and 20 minutes of reading... I'd say not bad for my first 24in48 day, but that means I have about 19 hours of reading left to reach my ultimate goal. I'm not sure that will actually happen, but I'm sure I'll at least make it halfway.

I foresee another two hours or so of reading to finish the rest of this book. And yes, I fully intend to finish it before I go to sleep. Mainly because it's getting exciting now and I'm loathe to stop any time soon.
