I hear tell from The Internets that Yellojkt is pushing hard this year on his bid to spread the gospel of January being National Just Read More Novels Month, so I’m setting this post up to appear at one minute past midnight on New Year’s Day, just to start the year off right. So if you’re reading this just after midnight, Happy New Year! Hope you resolved to get a life. Jeez.
As it happens, NaJuReMoNoMo is, as Yellojkt describes it, "astoundingly easy." All you have to do is read a novel from beginning to end during the month. The only thing that makes this difficult for me is that, while I’m a voracious reader, I’ve been on a curious run of a great deal of nonfiction lately. So I’m going to have to order some new fiction from Amazon and do some re-reading in the interim.
If you’d like to play along, it’s only fair to do a post about it and don’t forget to use some artwork. Yello’s site has a link to all kinds of NaJuReMoNoMo pictures.
This should be fun, no kidding.
