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.
