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.
This round of #24in48 will take place from July 21-July 22. Here are the books I’m planning to choose from:
-I’ll be traveling on Saturday, and plan to listen to the audiobook of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. It’s been a while since I’ve read this lovely novel, and I’ve forgotten a lot of the details. I’m excited to revisit it before the adaptation is released on Netflix next month!
-I’m very excited to start Circe by Madeline Miller, and I may dip into The Seven 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton and/or The Lido by Libby Page. All three are downloaded to my Kindle app, and the latter two are also NetGalley eARCs.
-As for physical books, I hope to read some more of Testament of Youth by Vera Brittain. I’m absolutely loving this memoir but just can’t seem to read very much of it at once. I had hoped to have finished it by now, but as long as I complete it by the end of the summer, I’m fine with it. There’s a slight chance I’ll pick up Human Croquet by Kate Atkinson as well. Since I read Atkinson’s Behind the Scenes of the Museum during the last #24in48, this would be a fun addition.
Have you read any of these titles? Will you be participating in this round of #24in48?
