Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a vivacious reader. For those of you who only know me through my blog, I haven't posted about the books that I'm reading but you can see my ever-growing list on the right. If you've been particularly observant, you will see the title that I'm "reading now" change every week or so. For the last couple of years, on my list of new year's resolutions is to read the New York Times Top 50 books of fiction. I have yet to succeed in reading all 50, and while I still have a ways to go, I'm pretty proud of how many titles I've devoured in 2011.
Today is the annual 24-hour Read-a-Thon and I'm participating for the first time. I suppose my spending time reading today isn't so different than say, yesterday ... or tomorrow ... but I love the idea of people from all over the world making sure that they devote a large chunk of today reading.
We're a reading family so I won't be doing this alone; each of us is never without a book-in-progress, but today we'll put aside a few hours when we can tune everything out and quietly read. I don't think I'll try to stay up for a solid 24 hours, but I promise to spend time when I'm not knitting (or blogging) with my book! Oh, and did I mention that reading all your blogs count? Happy reading!
