24 in 48 Readathon Wrap Up

Here is my 24 in 48 readathon wrap up. I'll tell you how I read and what books I read. I will have a wrap up video coming up on my channel this week as well so keep your eyes peeled for that!

So the readathon stars at 10pm eastern time officially. If you want to do the readathon from midnight to midnight that's completely up to you but it worked out well for me to do a 10pm start because I'm currently mountain time, 2 hours behind eastern.

Here's how it went:

Day 1

10pm-1am Reading, (total so far: 3 hours)
1am-8am Sleep!
8am-11am Reading (total so far: 6 hours)
11am-11:30am Break
11:30am-6:30pm Reading (total so far 13 hours)
6:30pm-7pm Break
7pm-9pm Reading (total so far 15 hours)
9pm-12am Dinner/SNL

Day 2

12am-8am Sleep
8am-9am Read (total so far 16 hours)
9am-10am nap (woops!)
10am-12pm Read (total so far 18 hours)
12pm-2pm Read over brunch (total so far 20 hours)
2pm-3pm chat with family
3pm-7pm Read (total so far 24 hours)
7pm-7:30pm Listen to audiobook on the way to dinner (total so far 24.5 hours)
7:30pm-9:30pm Dinner
9:30pm-10pm Listen to audiobook on the back from dinner (total 25 hours reading!)

So I read for 25 hours of the readathon (I didn't remember to time the last 30 mins as I was in the car giving directions!). I found I read more slowly this weekend as I wasn't feeling great and I got easily distracted when I was out and about or when there were other people around. But I DID stick to my TBR-yey!

I read 3 full books and most of another book

Book 1: 281 pages

Book 2: 432 pages

Book 3: 272 pages (audiobook)

Book 4: 218 of  320 pages

Total pages: 1203

I took part in a couple of the challenges as well and updated regularly on social media. I would have liked to have taken part in a few more challenges but I didn't want to get even more distracted than I already was!

Did you take part in the readathon? Either way, what did you read this weekend?
