National Readathon Day Today

National Readathon Day on Saturday.

i love reading bagAre you ready to do some reading this Saturday afternoon? I hope so. Especially because it is National Readathon Day, sponsored by the National Book Foundation as well as some other book and reading promoters.

Publishers Weekly carried the story as introduced here. Follow the link above to learn more about it – and better yet, to participate! That could include reading to your child or grandchild! 🙂

This Saturday, January 24, marks the first National Readathon Day sponsored by Penguin Random House, GoodReads, Mashable, and the National Book Foundation to raise money for NBF’s reading programs.

Since the program was first announced last fall, readers have been encouraged to pledge their support and to participate in the Readathon from noon to 4 p.m. (in respective time zones). They are also encouraged to share their experience on social media, using the hashtag #timetoread.
