I discovered something interesting while scrolling around Instagram on my lunch hour today: The 24 in 48 Readathon!

Sure I had fewer than 12 hours to prepare, but I figured, why not!? So here we are a couple hours out & I’m so excited to probably fail. I’ve got a hike planned for tomorrow morning and laundry to do this weekend. We’ll see if I can squeeze 24 hours of reading in there somewhere. Even if I can’t log all 24 hours, it’ll be good to get a good chunk of reading done. My TBR pile, is all stacked up and ready for midnight.

First up? Some middle grade! Me and Marvin Gardens by Amy Serig King

Wish me luck y’all!
