National Read-a-thon Day!

Big Announcement! If you don’t already know, NATIONAL READ-A-THON DAY IS COMING UP! EEEEEEEE!!! XD

If you know what is it, good! What book are you going to read?

If you don’t already know what it is, here’s the deal! January 24th, 2015 is National Read-a-thon Day. From 12 Noon to 4pm Local Time (whatever timezone you’re in!) you try to read as much as you can. Since it’s only 4 hours I don’t think many people will be doing more then 1 book, unless they’re mass-reading Graphic Novels, Manga or Comic Books, which is all cool, more power to you guys for doing more then one book! National Read-a-thon Day is also a fundraiser held by the National Book Foundation. Here’s a link to their fundraising page so you can read more about it:

Also, Goodreads is joining in on the fun as well! They have a space you can pledge to Read a book of your choosing! Here’s the link for the Goodreads page with the Info:

There’s a link on the goodreads page where you can make the pledge of which book your going to be reading, I believe it’s the second link in the article, so click that when you see it and choose your book!

I’ve already pledged my book, and it’s going to be: The Anubis Oracle: A Journey into the Shamanic Mysteries of Egypt By Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf with illustrations by Kris Waldherr. I’m not expecting to finish it during the read-a-thon but at least I’ll get a nice bit of it done during those hours.

For those of you who might be elsewhere in the world, I don’t see why you have to miss out on the fun. Why not make it an INTERnational event and pledge a book anyways? It’s an excuse to read! X3 Like us book people need more of those, right? XD

So, what books will YOU pledge to read?
