Day To Read

DAY TO READ campaign - January 10, 2008

This morning as I started my blogging rounds I stopped by Regina's blog and saw her post about A Day To Read.

The plan is this- on January 10th we will stop blogging for part or all (gasp) of the day and spend that time reading instead. Now, I've already told Regina that I don't think I can stop blogging for the entire day. I mean- really- can anyone do that? For me the twitching would start shortly after 7am if I were unable to do my morning blog checks. And, if I am twitching it would be hard to hold my book still in order to read it.

So, for me- I plan to set aside part of January 10th to do some reading. If you can do it all (gasp) day- well go for it.

Allison at Soccer Mom in Denial is the one who came up with this idea, so if you are going to participate- stop by her post here and let her know.

Then on January 11th those of us who participated can blog about what we read. So, are you in?

I love reading. I used to stay up late at night -or early morning just to finish an unputdown-able book.. Now, I can only wish I can have more time to do that...but between mothering, working and blogging (!), I've gotta slow down on this . But I think this is great and I'm actually participating to this one.

Thanks for the info.

Sadly, the only thing I read is children's book these days, and I'm guessing that DOES NOT count! :)

You know you can go without blogging for a day, you do it every sunday!!!
But I do understand!!

As soon as I read go a whole day without blogging...I felt the instant urge to throw up, starting with the sweats and shakes...I doubt I can go a whole day without blogging! Even when I don't post- I read and check in on blogs. I read all day long during the week - the reading book, the guided reading books, the directions on everything - the directions on everything again because no on was listening- the questions on the paper, the directions on everything again...well, you get the point! Does that count? ;)

LOL! You're so funny - go to my blog and do the 'How addicted to blogging are you?' quiz... I had been so busy the past weeks, that instead of blogging, I read myself to sleep! So yeah, maybe I can do it :-)

Thats indeed a very nice initiative :) I have been wondering about the lack of reading habit for few days and there comes a thought.
Nice job! :)
