Penguin Presents: #ProjectReadathon


“From April 17 – 23, the week leading up to UNESCO’s World Book Day, you have an opportunity to #ReadWell and to help young readers in local communities throughout North America. All you have to do is read. Browse and read the free, timed excerpts from our books and authors on this site – from Biography and Memoir, to Health and Wellness, and from Sci-fi & Fantasy, to Young Adult and the Classics – triggering book donations from Penguin Random House to Save the Children, up to 300,000 books. Check the top of each excerpt to see how many minutes you will contribute and how many books we will donate.” —PRH

I love when Penguin Random House promotes incredible initiatives such as this one. Today, I took a little breaking during lunch to read WONDER and help contribute to the cause! Two books were donated to children in need and it only took 10 minutes of my day. A small request for a rather large outcome. I hope that today, you are able to dedicate just a few minutes of your time to this wonderful cause! Start reading now.

Thank you and happy reading!
