Read-a-thon: 24in48 July 2018 Starts Now!

Now!  Now!  Now!  Happy Reading Everyone!!!

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.

This post was obviously pre-drafted and scheduled to go.  Chances are, I am nowhere near my computer right now, and have eagerly started in on my readathon reads!  It took a little while, but I started planning the month, and sort of got into pre-formatting all of my update posts for 24in48 and the next thing I know, I got more pumped than I thought I would.

I have the entire weekend off, including Monday!  Yay!  Which means that, in theory, I could also keep reading until 23:59 on Saturday, July 22.  Whether or not that actually happens is still up in the air.  And knowing how my usual readathon weekends go, for all I know, I could read for a couple hours starting now, go to sleep, then wake up in the morning and suddenly have family obligations.

Sigh.  Thus is life.

Currently I'm reading the following three books, one audio book, one paper back novel, and one e-book novella duet.  I had intended to have Jill Shalvis's novella duet, Blind Date Disasters / Eat Your Heart Out finished before the readathon started, but that didn't actually happen.  So instead, a small portion of the book ended up being finished as part of the readathon.

That's fine, too.

My main goal this readathon... well... is just to get books read.  I've got a whole weekend, and I've got some snacks in mind to keep me happy.

Readathon Hopefuls:

What's everyone else reading this weekend?
