I'm guilty of it, and you're guilty of it. The trick is to have support, which is exactly what #Read26Indy is, but instead of having a few friends hold you accountable for your vows, you have an entire city.
The pledge: I'm calling on every Hoosier to read 26 books in 2014. Think of it as an education, a collective challenge. One book every two weeks. That's 20 pages a day (if you figure the average novel is 280-300 pages long). When you start a book, let everyone know about it on Twitter by using the hashtag #Read26Indy. Feel like telling us what you're drinking while you're reading? Have at it, but use #Read26Indy. The point is to read. Like Faulkner said, "Read, read, read. Read everything -- trash, classics, good and bad."
This is Indy's most exclusive book club. Can't decide what to read? Tweet it out. #Read26Indy has already gathered a large following, and people are eager to tell you about their favorite books.
I hope you'll join me in ranting and raving about your favorite books, authors, quotes, ect....more
