Hour 16 Reading Sprint

The harder part of this readathon has set in for many of us, and we are starting to feel the ‘burn’, that pressing need to take a nap, or do dishes, or watch a movie. Here’s a great chance to regroup. Grab your book and your beverage and let’s rock out a good, solid hour long reading sprint.

On your marks!!! Get Set!!! Go!!!!!!!
