The United States is launching its first National Readathon Day tomorrow. More details here: http://nationalbook.org/2015_readathon.html#.VMIYWC416T0.
According to the website, as people get older, they don’t read as much as they used to.
53% of 9-year-olds read for pleasure daily, and by the time they turn 17, that number drops to 19%. Without your help, book worms may soon become an endangered species.
Maybe a similar event will take place in Europe someday!
