WHOOOHOOOOOOOO!!! Happy #24in48 everyone!!

Going to bed now, but I‘ll be waking myself up in about 8-ish hours with the audiobook of Matilda, read by Kate Winslet 😍

(Honestly my fave part about this Readathon, apart from you guys, is that I feel absolutely no guilt about getting in my 💤, which has become Very Important as I get older. What‘s your fave part about this Readathon???)

Freespirit I am yet to join in but I‘d love to do one in the future! 12mo
Sharanya @Freespirit it‘s not too late if you‘re interested!! 12mo
Freespirit Thankyou @Sharanya I would love to but I have 3 12hr shifts this long weekend. I'd love to try in the future. Good luck🤗 12mo

Not bad for my first #readathon : 13 hours and 40 minutes! I am not much of a night owl so I consider the fact that I made it to 12:30 before falling asleep a success.
I got up to fit in a little more reading before the end of the readathon and now it's time for coffee, a shower, and then...more reading!
I finished 2 books and am halfway through 2 others, so I'm pretty happy with my readathon results!

I could really use a weekend of reading. Probably not 24 hours of reading because I want to do a few other things too, but as much as possible would be great.

Trying to think of what I could do to decorate the letters for my house library (aka my tiny second bedroom). I have had the letters for a couple years and it is time to put them up! Any crafty ideas?

Caleb Green, this adorable four year old from Chicago, had the perfect weekend—he read 100 Books!! He wanted to do a read-a-thon and his parents suggested he read fewer books but Caleb insisted on 100 👍🏽His parents live-streamed the event on Facebook and Caleb celebrated every 10 books read by dancing 😊—how fabulous is that??!!?? 💜💜

So 52 books aren't a whole lot but I figured I'd be doing okay if I read at least one book a week. I'm proud of myself for getting it done. Lol.

#BookNerdConfessions:
📚The more books I read at one time, the fewer details I remember
📚I ❤ book art
📚 I have no qualms about throwing away old books. Fight me 👊

EchoLogical @Redwritinghood @Simona @CaliforniaCay @Libby1 @samesfoley @Avanders Thanks guys. I think 52 is a decent number but I've seen Littens who read like 20 books a month. 😅 2y
samesfoley @EchoLogical I know, but I have no idea how they do it!!!!!! 2y
vicgreentoriafield 👏👏🎉🎉🎉 2y
MiyakoBunny 52 is a great number! I find it difficult to read when I get swamped with other duties especially since I'm not an audiobook person so it's completely understandable 😃 besides it's not the quantity that matters just that you're reading 📖 2y
CaliforniaCay Right? I'm only at 17 out of 35 and I feel accomplished. But then I come on Litsy and see that other people are basically reading a book a day - how are they doing that?! 2y

Hey Littens, we don't need any reasons to read but if you are looking to explain to THAT non reading friend why you need to stay in every night next week, say you are doing #ProjectReadathon! It will help give kids books!

#24in48 wrap-up...though i only read for about 12.
.
all of Ghost, half of Universe, about 20 pages of Bright (which i have been picking away at), all of the March series, and about an hour of Here Comes the Sun on audio in the car.

DebinHawaii 12 hours is still a lot of reading!! Great job! 🎉📚👍 3y
