This Saturday I’m doing something I’ve wanted to do for years. I’m doing a 24 Hour Reading Challenge.
And I’m not just participating in it, I’m also hosting it.
24 Hour Reading Challenge Defined:
It’s where you set aside 24 hours – for this one, it’s from Midnight on Friday night until Midnight on Saturday night – to read as much as you can.
I’m going super chill, so it’s a free-for-all as far as what you want to read. The category I’m choosing to read during the challenge is re-reading middle-grade childhood favorites. I’m still trying to figure out what exactly that means – so if you want to see that journey, you can check out my Instagram Stories.
What A 24 Hour Reading Challenge is NOT:
-It’s not a contest to see who can read the most
-It’s not high pressure
-It’s not a time when you have to finish a ton of books
What a 24 Hour Reading Challenge IS:
-It’s a time for readers to have fun as they’re all reading at the same time
-It’s relaxing, rejuvenating, and rewarding
-It’s a time to see what other bookworms are reading
-It’s a time to pick up that book you’ve been wanting to read for a while
How to Join the Challenge:
–Comment here or over on my Instagram telling me you want to join
–Choose what books you want to read
–Clear as much of your Saturday as possible so you can get more time to read
How to Participate in the Challenge:
-Read as much as you can/want
-Keep track of the number of pages you read/listen to. (Yes! Audiobooks count!) This challenge tracks the number of pages you read, not the books, so you can switch back and forth to keep your mind engaged
-Post pictures on Instagram Story (or any social media venue) throughout the day with the Hashtag #24HourReadingChallenge
-Fun Option: Tag me on your 24 Hour Challenge pictures so I can see them, too!
What I’ll be Posting in my Story:
-Updates on what I’m reading
-Where I’m reading (inside, outside, upside-down)
-Snacks I’m chowing down on during the challenge
-Number of pages I’ve read
-Anything else book related
-Plus, I’ll be re-posting what other people are posting with the #24HourReadingChallenge hashtag
I’m so excited because I already have several people from Instagram (including my mom!) interested in the challenge.
Let me know if you have any questions.
