You still have a few days to choose a book you’d like to
spend 4 guilt-free hours with. PenguinRandom House has designated Saturday afternoon 24 January as its first annual National
Readathon Day. Read at home, find a quiet spot at the library, or get together
friends, neighbors, or family for a reading party.
More importantly, the event is to promote reading - especially
among kids, since books tend to lose out to technology (see iEverything post). Did you know that 40% of adults in America are
at or below basic reading proficiency? 14% are fully illiterate. The fundraising
component benefits the National Book Foundation’s community reading programs
for those at risk.
