Congratulations to the staff at the McArthur Library in BIDDEFORD, Maine for 106 hours of uninterrupted reading breaking the record of 100 hours, set earlier this summer at a library in Henderson, Nev. These four librarians, and two high school students, read aloud for more than four straight days putting them in the Guinness Book of World Records! Librarians strive for read-aloud record
Now that the readathon has ended, participants are keeping the spirit of it alive at their blog, World Record Readathon. These enthusiastic, book lovers have certainly given me a goal to share with some of my high school students who say "reading is boring." Hog wash!
