A coupleĀ blogs I read do link round-ups on Friday. I love it!

I don’t plan to add more noise, but thought it would be nice to link up to their link ups!

I am excited for National Readathon Day tomorrow! I’m headed to Lucky’s this afternoon to get treats to get us through…also having people for dinner tonight so have to get some wine. I’m still going strong with that secret resolution! It’s been fun picking out new things each weekend and actually drinking something halfway decent.

If you’re reading tomorrow, be in touch on twitter or instagram!

This is so good.

Penguin Random House along with GoodReads, Mashable, and the National Book Foundation has declared January 24th National Readathon Day. From noon until 4:00pm this Saturday I’ll be playing along by plopping down with lots of yummy food and beverages, not moving–settling in to READ something.

My Mom is hosting and it should be funny to see if we can keep from yapping the whole time. Many coffeeshops, libraries, community centers, and even bars are hosting silent, group reading this Saturday.

Click here for a list of participating venues throughout the country.

I found out about this from one of my favorite podcasts, Books on the Nightstand. I’m a little overloaded with great podcasts right now…I plan to share a list of what I’m loving tomorrow.
