National Readathon Day

So evidently Saturday, Jan 24, is National Readathon Day! Brilliant. So I can do what I would be doing anyway, only smile smugly at people and feel entirely justified when I hold up a finger and say, “I’ll get to that after I finish this chapter.”

I tried that technique as a kid.

Dinner? After this chapter. 

Chores? After this chapter.

Sleep? Where are your priorities?

What I should have done is had a holiday like National Readathon Day. Which is even better than a plain old excuse to read books, because it promotes literacy and raises $ for funding National Book Foundation programs.

What will you be reading?
