Woman Reads A Book A Day!

Check this out. Last October 28, on her 46th birthday, Nina Sankovitch read a novel, The Elegance of the Hedgehog (Muriel Barbery). The next day she posted a review online deeming it “beautiful, moving and occasionally very funny.” The next day she read The Emigrants (W.G. Sebald), and the day after that A Sun for the Dying (Jean-Claude Izzo). Since then Sankovitch has read a book a day every day. And, as if that weren’t enough, she’s reviewed each book on her website, ReadAllDay.org. And somehow she’s managed to take care of her husband and four boys, ages 16, 14, 11 and 8. Sankovitch, a former environmental lawyer, follows some rules. All the books are ones she has not read. She reads only one book per author. She reads one day and posts the review the next morning. By necessity she mostly sticks to books 250 to 300 pages or fewer, and reads everything from fiction to memoirs to sci-fi and nonfiction.

I’ve recently began to read a lot and I am loving it. – Justin
