January 24th, 2015 will be the first National Readathon Day. Penguin Random House, Goodreads, Mashable, and the National Book Foundation have created the readathon to encourage literacy and fundraise to support programs to teach and encourage reading.
Join readers across the United States as we read between noon and 4 p.m. in our respective time zones. The tags #timetoread and #readathon are already lighting up Twitter, so be sure to post and use the hastags if you are participating! Many groups are hosting reading parties to celebrate.
