Teenreads Monthly Update

Hi Teenreaders,

What did you do last Saturday --- see a movie or hang out with friends? Or, like some of our Teen Board members (and myself!) did you participate in the first annual National Readathon Day?

Sponsored by the National Book Foundation, Penguin Random House, Goodreads and Mashable, this newfound celebration of books encouraged people from across the country to read between noon and 4pm on Saturday, January 24th, whether at a sponsored "reading party" at a bookstore or library or on their living room couch. Readers could join a team and raise money to sponsor the National Book Foundation's programs or just peruse a book to celebrate the spirit of literacy.
