The goal of #24in48 is to read for 24 hours over the course of 48 hours.
I wavered back and forth on whether to join this time around. I really wanted to, but I have a previous engagement on Sunday night and, well, I like to sleep. (Sleep has become more important as I’ve gotten older.) But then I remembered that *technically* the readathon starts at midnight Saturday Eastern Time. Which is 9pm Friday night for me! So, if I get a few hours on Friday, a solid Saturday, and a good Sunday morning… I should be close.

Total at the end of Saturday: 13:52:00
Saturday, 22:35 – God’s War isn’t working out for me. Checked out the audio version of The Black Dove by Steve Hockensmith. Total time logged: 12:10:07
