January is National Just Read More Novels Month. I bet you didn't know that, but it's true. First I read about it at Charlottesville Words and that sent me to the source.
It's easy: commit to reading a novel during the month of January and then when you finish it you are entitled to download a logo that says NaJuReMoNoMo Winner. Okay, it's a little hokey, but I'm all in favor of anything that encourages reading. I'm determined to read at least two, since I've already got Daniel Alarcon's Lost City Radio underway. The other one I commit to reading is The Gathering by Anne Enright (the recent Man Booker Prize winner).
