National Readathon Day

"You might take for granted how easy it is for you to read this sentence, but millions of Americans still struggle with basic literacy. 40% of American adults are either at or below basic reading proficiency, and 14% are fully illiterate." (Penguin Randomhouse blog)

The National Book Foundation, Penguin Random House, Goodreads and Mashable are looking to alter this course by sponsoring the first-ever National Readathon Day on January 24 from 12pm - 4pm. They are hoping you take #timetoread and share the joy of reading with your friends and community. Check out all the details here. (h/t Galleycat)
