24 in 48 Readathon!

by Colleen Morrow in


So on Thursday, I saw a tweet about a 24 in 48 readathon.  I had to investigate.  I used to do the Dewey Readathon with fair regularity but it's just not the right readathon for me.  But this 24 in 48...  Now here was something I could work with!  The aim is to read for 24 hours over a total period of 48 hours.  And that is perfect.  Because it means I can sleep and I can spend some time on SM seeing what other people are doing and it doesn't cut into my reading time.  So I signed myself up.

I picked out an armful of books last night plus two audios and I'm going to get cracking.  I'll be posting mostly to instagram & twitter with the hashtags #24in48 but will update this post periodically.  If you want to find me at either site, I'm @janeycanuck on both.  

Progress updates:

  • Finished Slow Food by Carlo Petrini (total of 2 hours, 37 minutes)
  • Progress on The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender (3 hours so far)
  • Finished Eat More Better by Dan Pashman (total of 4 hours, 5 minutes)
  • Finished The Sharper Your Knife, the Less You Cry by Kathleen Flinn (total of 4 hours)
