National Readathon Day is This Saturday !



When I first heard about National Readathon Day on the Books on The Nightstand Podcast I thought it sounded awesome. What is National Readathon Day ? It's an event created by Penguin Random House where readers across the world will use the hours from 12 Noon  to 4PM on Saturday Jan. 24th 2015 to do nothing but read. You can do it in a school, in the library, at home or wherever and don't forget to #timetoread.

National Readathon Day is also a fundraiser for the National Book Foundation. You can raise money yourself or join a team and donate what you can to them. I'll be joining the Books on The Nightstand Team and I encourage you to because it's an awesome podcast hosted by two book lovers/ PRH employees.

Learn more about National Readathon Day on their website ! 

In many states libraries and bookstores  are hosting reading events. We have a couple near me in Virginia, but I'll probably be participating either from my couch or at a local coffee shop !

I'm not sure what I'll feel like reading that day. I have a little bit of  everything loaded up.



Kindle book- A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray
Hardcover - Like No Other by Una LaMarche
Paperback -  A Lot Like Love by Julie James
Graphic Novel - Saga by Brian K Vaughan and Fiona Staples

  1. This sounds really good. Unfortunately with a six month old, four hours of uninterrupted reading isn't going to happen (unless it's between 12 and 4am...) But I will make sure I read my daughter some good picture books on Saturday afternoon!

  2. Love Saga! It's definitely one of my favorite graphic novel series. I hope you're able to sneak it into your reading time. I'm definitely looking forward to participating myself though I have no idea what I'll be reading. I'll probably just pick up whatever I happen to be the most into at that point in time. Happy reading!

  4. Yes, having 4 hours to read is definitely a luxury ! I think a lot of schools and libraries are doing activities in the 'spirit of reading' for four hours since it's hard to get kids to concentrate that long. It's great you are starting her young on books. Happy reading!
