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.
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

I’m a lifelong reader who started blogging about YA books in 2011 but now I read in just about every genre! I love YA coming of age stories, compelling memoirs and genre bending SFF. You can find me talking all things romance at Romance and Sensibility.
