#24in48 Readathon Summer 2018

#24in48 Readathon!

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.

    So I’ve read (and loved) 84 Charing Cross Road five times and I had no idea that she’d written anything else (other than the sequel where she goes to London?).

    I can’t believe I had no idea, considering how much I love that book! I’ve just gone and ordered a paperback copy of Q’s Legacy, so hopefully I’ll have it soon…

    Good look with your read-a-thon 🙂
