National Readathon Day

NationalReadathonDayHave you ever wished you could just curl up for a day with a good book? Well, you’re in luck: Penguin Random House has teamed up with the National Book Foundation to hold a marathon reading session!

Join us along with GoodReads and Mashable for an afternoon of reading on Saturday, January 24 from noon to 4 pm (in our respective time zones).

Did you know that millions of people struggle with basic literacy skills? Consider starting your own FirstGiving Fundraising page or directly donating to this worthy cause to support the countless people across the world who read below the basic reading proficiency or are completely illiterate.

You can also raise awareness and join the online conversation with the hashtag #timetoread!

We’re also giving away five Bob’s Hungry Ghost reading kits – a poster and a doorknob hanger to ensure that you get the privacy you need to read!
