24 in 48 is hosted by Rachel at A Home Between the Pages. Rachel had a lovely idea for what I randomly hashtagged as #readerswithlives: a 24 hour readathon over an entire weekend! (Hence #24in48!) Basically, it’s the perfect readathon for those of us who like sleep and also have lives that refuse to be ignored for 24 hours straight no matter how great the book is.
Rachel is starting with Ender’s Game, which is a fantastic readathon book, though I haven’t read it in years. I have to finish The Forrests by Emily Perkins for a review set to go up on Monday for TLC Book Tours, so this is the perfect weekend for such a readathon. I’m not sure what’s on the docket straightaway after that, if/when I finish in time to start another book, but I have 100s of options!
Fortunately for me and my reading time, the coconspirator is working all day long, so he won’t be sad that I’m ignoring him in favor of a book. Unfortunately, I’m on call for 2 long shifts for my volunteer life as well this weekend, so I’m hoping everyone behaves themselves & no trips to ERs are necessary. Also, that will allow for more reading time. But: If I disappear, that’s likely where I’ve disappeared to, unless I’ve gotten lost in a book.
Either way, check back here (or better yet on twitter) for updates on progress! (I’ll most likely just update this particular post.)

Though I didn’t manage to read for 24 hours (it was just way too nice out), I did manage to read a lot more than I normally do! All in all, great readathon!
