#BookishBloggersUnite – 24 in 48 Day 1 Wrap Up

The Bookish BloggersUnite tag is talking about the 24 in 48 readathon all weekend. You can still sign up and check in for prizes! Also I would recommend having a read of Katy’s post over at The Bookish Cronk for some excellent readathon tips.

I made it to just over 7 hours yesterday which wasn’t awesome. Starting off with a big dense book was a tactical error and made me feel like I wasn’t getting anywhere
(although it is excellent!).

I had some invaluable help during the day.

And I changed up my location in the afternoon so I could get some sun and feed the ducks. But the wind was freezing, so I beat a retreat home after only an hour.

I finished:

  • Artificial Condition by Martha Wells
  • Ruby Moonlight by Ali Cobby Eckermann
  • Too Afraid to Cry by Ali Cobby Eckermann.

This year you can submit the titles of your books through the 24 in 48 website. The titles are getting added to Goodreads, and I suspect that spreadsheet queen Rachel Manwill will have some cool stats for us about page numbers, authors of colour and LGBTQI+ representation once the dusts settles.

I’m about to kick off day 2 with Taboo by Kim Scott on audio. This biggest dilemma I’m working on right now is do I want to work on a baby blanket or socks?

Let me know how your day one went! You can link your day 1 wrap up post in the linky below.
