Penguin Random House along with GoodReads, Mashable, and the National Book Foundation has declared January 24th National Readathon Day. From noon until 4:00pm this Saturday I'll be playing along by plopping down with lots of yummy food and beverages, not moving--settling in to READ something.
My Mom is hosting and it should be funny to see if we can keep from yapping the whole time. Many coffeeshops, libraries, community centers, and even bars are hosting silent, group reading this Saturday.
I found out about this from one of my favorite podcasts, Books on the Nightstand. I'm a little overloaded with great podcasts right now...I plan to share a list of what I'm loving tomorrow.
