Readathons and Challenges

January 2018 24in48 Readathon

cropped-banner_plain.pngHello everyone and welcome back to my blog.

Today I am doing a quick announcement that I will be participating in the 24in48 readathon this year.

The 24in48 readathon will take place on 27th and 28th of January and I am so so sooo excited because I actually have this weekend off work and can participate in the readathon. I work in a hotel and very often, when I want to participate in a readathon, I have to work on that particular weekend. So yes, I am even more excited that I can participate in this awesome readathon.

If you don’t know what the 24in48 readathon is, please check out their website with all infos + links to other social media here.

If you’re new to 24in48, this is the basic gist: beginning at 12:01am on Saturday morning and running through 11:59pm on Sunday night, participants read for 24 hours out of that 48-hour period. You can split that up however you’d like: 20 hours on Saturday, four hours on Sunday; 12 hours each day; six four-hour sessions with four hour breaks in between, whatever you’d like.

There is also a FAQ page if you have further questions and you can check up all participants here. You can sign up for the readthon on the main website.

I personally don’t know how I will divide my 24 hours, but probably/hopefully very evenly. I don’t want to end up having to read 20 hours on Sunday because I only read 4 hours on Saturday. I am probably going to end up reading around 12 hours each day and I just hope that this will work out fine.

I will, of course, post my TBR a few days before. I don’t really know what books I am going to read on that weekend yet, because I don’t know what I will be reading until then. However, I will probably aim for reading 2-3 books. I am also thinking about saving up some of my audiobook for this weekend, because I guess it would be nice.

This is definitely a challenge for me. I did read 12 hours a day before, however, I never aimed at that, it just happened, because the book was exciting etc. I will of course try to reach the 24hours reading goal, however, I won’t be mad at myself if I ended up only reading 20 hours or so.

I will definitely post regular updates and an end of the weekend wrap up on Sunday or Monday. I will also share my experiences while reading on my Instagram @sabisaysreads, so definitely check out my profile if you’re interested in that too.

Okay, so, that was all for my announcement. Who else is going to participate?
