24in48 Readathon | Sign-Up & TBR

Hello, welcome on this rather gloomy Friday, I bring you an exciting readathon sign-up/TBR post. For those unaware, the next round of the 24in48 Readathon is happening this weekend – that’s right,  for the 22nd and 23rd July, for those 48 hours, the ultimate goal is to try to read for 24 hours out of that time.

(For more information, you can check the readathon website or see my previous 24in48 post.)

Last time, back in January, I really enjoyed the readathon and managed to read what seemed like a ridiculous of amount of books, even if I didn’t manage to read for the full 24 out of 48 hours. This round, I’m hoping to do better than last time. I’m still skeptical I’ll be able to make it to 24 because I need to leave the house on Sunday afternoon and that eats into valuable reading time, buuut I’m going to try my hardest anyway.

(Side note: last time the 24in48 readathon happened I was trying to get through War and Peace and completely failed to do so because the 24in48 readathon reminded me how nice it was to actually, you know, finish books instead of slaving away at a tome for weeks on end. Now it’s the second 24in48 of the year and I just so happen to be trying to read War and Peace at the same time again – weird conincidence but I really hope this readathon doesn’t kill my progress with it!)

So this is my official sign-up post and also I thought I’d mention a few books on my TBR because that seems relevant:

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

Crooked Kingdom 
by Leigh Bardugo

The Art of Asking 
by Amanda Palmer [audiobook/PB]

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue 
by Mackenzi Lee [audiobook]

& I’ll probably completely stray from that TBR and end up reading something completely different too.

I’d like to say that I will try to keep my blog updated at various points during the weekend but, since I enjoy sleep, I really do need to be reading for every moment of my weekend in order to try to get to 24 hours. The upshot of that is that blogging takes up too much valuable reading time and I’ll likely forget to update here with my progress. However, I’ll definitely be periodically posting status update tweets on Twitter and annoyingly frequent page count updates via Goodreads though, so be sure to follow me over there if you’re at all interested in seeing how I do! And until then, I’ll see you on the other side, folks…

    I’m trying to read/listen to war and peace to through this readathon. I’m thinking of starting a puzzle and listening to the audiobook.

    I may have to sign up for this readathon! It sounds fricken awesome! Plus it will give me motivation to actually finish a few books! I am almost done with my current digital ARC and I think I’ve picked out the next one I want to read! :)

      Whoops I’m late getting to this comment and the readathon has already finished but I would totally recommend giving the readathon a go sometime! :)

      I love blowing through a few books in the space of a weekend, it gives me a sense of achievement, and since I’ll be working my way through a long book over the next couple of months it’s nice to still feel like I’m finishing books!

        I will give it a shot next time! I am trying to do booktube-a-thin this week! It sounds like another readathon is coming up in a few months anyway
