Do Nothing But Read Day 2011

Hey folks!


This year’s Do Nothing But Read Day is going to take place on August 6, 2011. This gives us all plenty of time to find a stack of books to keep us occupied!!

A reminder about the rules of engagement: 1) Read. 2) Have fun! I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: reading should be a fun experience, and I don’t care what you’re reading as long as you’re doing it.


I’ll post a sign-up form in the next few days (tomorrow is my birthday!), so stay tuned.

Parting question: what are you reading right now? I’m reading the third book in the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series, Morality for Beautiful Girls, and now I want to go to Botswana!

    [Where the Apple Ripens] by [[Jessie Kesson]]
    [The Ballad and the Source] by [[Rosamond Lehmann]]

    We’ll see how it goes. Good reads all,
