National Read-A-Thon Day!!

I'm a member of Goodreads and learned earlier this week through the Goodreads website that Saturday, January 24, 2015 is National Readathon Day! 

The following is a blurb about National Readathon Day from the Goodreads website:
Celebrate National Readathon Day with Goodreads and the National Book Foundation this winter! 
National Readathon Day is a nationwide marathon reading session on Saturday, January 24th from noon-4 PM (in respective time zones), and a fundraiser for The National Book Foundation’s literacy programs.
You can get involved by joining readers across the country on Saturday, January 24th and reading a book in your home, at a library, at a school, or at “reading party” events, created so the community can come together to share their love of books!
I'm planning to read from noon to 4pm. I plan to spend time reading the following novel Has Anyone Seen Jessica Jenkins? by Liz Kessler. 

So, please join me in reading a book from noon to 4pm in your time zone. 

Until my next post, happy reading!!
