Saturday, January 24th has been dubbed National Readathon Day in the US. It is an event sponsored by Penguin Random House, Mashable, Goodreads, and other various outlets. It kicks off at noon, with the reading marathon lasting four hours. You can donate here, if you choose. The proceeds will go to BookUp, which is an after-school reading program, one of which that I took part in when I was a child.
Spread the joys of reading on January 24th by picking up a book at home, with friends, at a bookstore, or perhaps a library. Search out a location to share this event with others or sit in your favorite reading spot.
