Well, the 2017 24 in 48 Readathon, January edition, has come and gone.
I’ll use the official 24in48 closing survey as a guide for my wrap-up:
How many books did you read? Pages?
I finished two books, The Graveyard Apartment by Mariko Koike (325 pages) and Broken Monsters by Lauren Beukes (436 pages). I also read about ten pages of Edith Pearlman’s Honeydew, so my page total is about 771. And I listened to a little less than an hour of As You Wish by Cary Elwes while I took a constitutional, but I’m not going to attempt to convert that to pages read.
How many hours did you read?
I didn’t keep close track, but I estimate about twelve hours total, maybe fourteen. Some stuff came up that kind of derailed my reading plans (real life is always trying to push into my reading time), so I didn’t spend as may hours reading as I would have preferred.
What do you think worked well in this readathon?
I like the surveys, and I like the 24-in-48 format. I liked reading about the challenges, although I didn’t keep up with them myself.
What do you think could be done to improve the readathon for next time?
Couldn’t say. I didn’t follow the challenges or the social media presence all that well, but I think that’s my thing, not something anyone else needs to improve.
Will you participate in a future 24in48 readathon?
Absolutely. Anything to give me an excuse to bury myself in books for a weekend.
