If you’re new to 24in48, this is the basic gist: beginning at 12:01 am (official timezone is EDT) on Saturday morning and running through 11:59 pm on Sunday night, participants read for 24 hours out of that 48-hour period.
You can split that up however you’d like. Whatever works for you.

What are your ideas about love? Is love an overwhelming romantic feeling? Can it be a decision or a duty? Can you fall out of love? Have you wished for a better understanding of the love of God? Can friends love each other? What about families and our love for them? In English, we use the same word for all these feelings … love …. but the Greeks have different words for these feelings of love and each has its different distinctions. Do you want to learn more? Then please join Classical Carousel in a read-along of C.S. Lewis’ The Four Loves for the month of June! To find out more about the read along, please go here.
