Be Part of the very first National Readathon Day!!! Saturday, January 24, 2015

Help change lives this winter by celebrating the first National Readathon Day with Penguin Random House and the National Book Foundation.
What's National Readathon Day (NRD)? 
*NRD is a nation-wide marathon reading session on Saturday, January 24 from Noon – 4pm (in respective time zones)
*You can share your love of books and support programs that promote reading by pledging to read and fundraising for the National Book Foundation
*It's like a walk-a-thon charity drive, but we're turning pages instead of walking laps.
What does the National Book Foundation (NBF) do? 
The NBF's mission is to expand the audience for literature in America. We're dedicated to promoting literacy and reading through programs like the National Book Awards, BookUp, 5 Under 35, and the Innovations in Reading Prize.
How do I get involved?  
Pledge to make #TimeToRead by registering for National Readathon Day on Firstgiving. Fundraise individually or as a team and you'll be eligible for great prizes for book lovers of all ages. You can start your own team of friends and colleagues, or join a team captained by your local bookstore or library.
