Here is a way of reading the files in a *apply loop. The file names are 
created by getting them from file (list.files) or by a string editing 
function (sprintf).

# file_names_vec <- list.files(pattern = "data\\d+\\.csv")
file_names_vec <- sprintf("data%d.csv", 1:24)
data_list <- sapply(file_names_vec, read.csv, simplify = FALSE)

# access the 1st data.frame
# same as above
# same as above

Hope this helps,
