The next #24in48 will be taking place on Jan. 27-28, 2018! And I hope you can join us for a weekend full of warm blankets, snuggly pets, stacks of books, and blessed alone time.
If you’re new to 24in48, this is the basic gist: beginning at 12:01am on Saturday morning and running through 11:59pm on Sunday night, participants read for 24 hours out of that 48-hour period. You can split that up however you’d like: 20 hours on Saturday, four hours on Sunday; 12 hours each day; six four-hour sessions with four hour breaks in between, whatever you’d like.
And that’s it. The format never changes but it’s always an adventure.
Have more questions? There’s an FAQ page for that. Also, we’re still accepting donations to help us send more prizes out to international winners through the PayPal donate button on the sidebar.
Ready to join? Fill out the form below and feel free to list any and all of the places you’ll be hanging out online during the ‘thon. Check out who else is participating. If your entry doesn’t immediately pop in to the spreadsheet, give it a few minutes to populate.
And you can follow the readathon in all the normal places. We’re on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and Litsy (@24in48) and you can use the official hashtag #24in48 everywhere to keep up with your fellow readathon-ers.

I have held onto a very old and tattered illustrated copy of The Hobbit forever
First Lines- "The day they tried to burn Odysseus's palace down, the queen of Ithaca was at her loom. So lost was she in the counts and the colors and the threads and the rhythm, she almost missed the entire event." -A Sea of Sorrow
