Get Ready for National Readathon Day!
Join Penguin Random House, the American Library Association, and fellow readers across the country for the second annual National Readathon Day on Saturday, May 21, 2016. Celebrate the joy of reading and giving during #Readathon2016 by raising funds while joining fellow readers for a day of reading.
