Friends, if you entering proof of 24 hours read, please share a direct link to your Litsy post showing the screenshot, not just to your profile. We expect 300+ entries and it takes a long time to go through them all when we have to check your profile. If you don't know how to share a direct link, click the arrow button at the bottom of your post, copy the link, and paste it into the form directly.

Welcome to Hour 33 of #24in48, which for many of our US readers is roughly the start of Day 2. Quick check-in to see how things are going; we've seen a few people already hit 24 hours (amazing!) and some others with big plans for today. If you're not going to hit 24, that's cool too! Remember, this is all about making time and space for reading. (And don't forget to hop over to 24in48.com to see if you won one of this hour's door prizes.)

As most of you US readers get going on day 2, a few reminders: 1) check the hourly posts to see if you won, 2) don‘t stress about whether you hit 24 hours, the point is to have fun and read, 3) there is no such thing as failing #24in48, 4) log your books! (Link in profile), 5) audiobooks def count, and 7) if you‘re entering challenges you need to use a static link. Have any more questions? Drop a comment or DM! Now! Back to the books!

saguarosally Forgive me for the note as I haven‘t done this readathon in a while, but that is the most terrifying bookstore ever. It could also have something to do with my dislike of small spaces. 😂 Ok back to reading! 9mo
cathysaid When you say “static link,” I assume for Litsy it just means mentioning Litsy and including our handle? 9mo

cathysaid Hi there. Could you respond to my question please? @RebL Thanks! 9mo
BarbaraJean @cathysaid @RebL I‘m not a host so this isn‘t an official response or anything, but I think they do mean you need to include a link to your post, even on Litsy. You can get a link by clicking the arrow at the bottom of your post, to the right of the stack icon. I copy the link from there and paste it in the Google form on the challenge blog post. I‘m on iOS, if that makes a difference—not sure what it looks like on Android. Hope that helps! (edited) 9mo
24in48 @cathysaid @RebL There are instructions to find the static link for a Litsy post here: https://24in48.com/2017/06/26/how-to-readathon/ 9mo
24in48 @BarbaraJean Thanks! We're trying to stay on top of comments/questions but there are three of us and 1500+ readers, so always appreciate someone else jumping in with an answer. 9mo
cathysaid So based on the instructions, telling you we‘re on Litsy AND listing the handle is the correct way to do it. That‘s how I‘ve done it all along. Thanks. 9mo

Who‘s still awake? Where are my international ‘thon-ers holding the fort down? We‘re more than halfway there and you guys are chugging right along. We pulled more door prize winners for this check-in (along with lots of unclaimed prizes from previous posts). Don‘t forget to scroll through and check to see if you won. Okay, back to the books! You‘re doing great! #24in48

We did it! We hit the halfway point! So many prize winners announced this hour! Check to see if you won (and don‘t forget to look at past check in posts for your name - still lots of unclaimed prizes up for grabs.) Are you still going strong as we head into day 2? #24in48

The_Heeler_Booklife If you won and submitted a prize claim form, will you get a confirmation of what prize you would get out of the 3 options? And if it is a galley, is it an e-galley or a physical gallery that will be mailed? 10mo
24in48 @allthingskayla No email confirmation. And it will be a physical galley. Most people get their first choices though. 10mo
The_Heeler_Booklife @24in48 Okay awesome. I can go cancel my preorder of what I chose as my first choice. 😊 Thanks for answering my question. Actually, one more question. How long does it take to get the galley? 😀 10mo
24in48 @allthingskayla It depends on the publisher, since they send it directly. (And on how quickly your hosts recover from readathon week 😝) 10mo

Scarlett_ohara Hi! I have a question. I want to participate but I live in France so I'm 6 hours ahead of you guys. Which means any reading I do on Saturday between midnight and 6AM won't count. Is it possible to do the challenge in my time zone? EDIT : never mind, I got an answer on the blog. Thank you so much 😘😘😘 (edited) 10mo
