24 in 48 Readathon has finished!

The 24 in 48 Readathon ended Sunday night and this being my first readathon, I think I did good. I read for a total of 5 hours in the 48 hours. I spent some time with family and friends as well, so it might not seem like I read much but for me, it’s sufficient. That’s an average of 2.5 hours a day. A lot more that I average on regular days. Someday I’d like to read more, of course, during the next readathon or maybe have my own personal readathon.

Even though it was only 5 hours, I finished two books, Go Ask Alice and Fearless: Run which completed my goal of reading 18 books this year, which I keep track of on Goodreads. Of course, I will continue to read more books till the end of year and hopefully I’ll read at least 6 more. My last years goal was to read 17 books, but I actually ended up reading 23. I would like to use the rest of year to get to 24.

What are you reading goals for this year?

24 in 48 Readathon

This weekend is the 24 in 48 Readathon and I am planning on participating. If you don’t know what it is, it’s a readathon where you read as much as you can for 24 hours within a 48 hour period. The great part is you don’t actually have to read for 24 hours, you can read as much or as little as your time allows. I do have plans this weekend but they aren’t big ones so I plan to read as much as I can in between. It’s my first marathon and I’ve been wanting to participate in one for a while now. I plan to read the Fearless books, which is a series and I have 14 books of it. I really want to finish that series so I hope I read a good chunk of it. Plus they are small books, good enough to carry around.

I might do status updates here on my blog but definitely on my Twitter. If you want to learn more about 24 in 28 Readathon and/or sign up, go here.

In other news: On Sunday, I might even do hourly journaling in my physical paper journal for the hell of it and also because I’m almost done with that journal and can’t wait to start on my new journal.

Anyway, let me know below if you’re participating in the 24 in 48 Readathon!
