I’m so excited about taking part in this readathon. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a while now and decided it was a great way to start my reading year.

Details can be found at 24in48.com and my biggest regret is that I didn’t visit the site sooner so I could get myself a t-shirt to mark the occasion. If I succeed this time I’ll definitely be getting one for the next event.

This is all very daunting but I have a kind of plan and hope it will work out.

First up the books:

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows

Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman


Blankets by Craig Thompson

The Sandman Vol. 1 Preludes & Nocturnes by Neil Gaiman

Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates

The Travelling Cat Chronicles by Hiro Arikawa

Now this is a lot for me but they are all kind of short and I wanted to have a good mix in there. I may add an ebook or two should the spirit move me!

Next the plan:

I think the best thing for me to do is try and get most of the 24 hours completed on Saturday. At the moment I’m planning on starting at 7am on Saturday morning (I’m out tonight so I need to behave) and getting in a few hours before we go look at a potential house to buy, it’s close by so hoping it will take no more than an hour and then once I’m back I’ll stick at it until lunch. I’ve also scheduled in an hour for a nap on Saturday evening as I’m planning to keep going until 3am. With this plan I can sleep in on Sunday and finish the 24 hours by 5pm on Sunday evening. Now I’m prepared for this not to happen but at least I’ll have a few hours to play with on Sunday if needed.

The eating:

The other half normally does all the cooking on the weekends so I’m sorted. I do my meal prep for the week on a Sunday though so I’ll be audiobooking it for an hour or two on Sunday morning.

The drinks:

Lots of water and tea obviously and well a lot of alcohol wouldn’t be a good idea but I’m going to have some gluten free beer in as I suspect I’ll be in need of one or two! 😀

Once I’m finished on Sunday I can start stressing about the wisdom tooth I’m getting taken out on Monday afternoon!! 😀
