Once again, I'll be reading in aid of the Alzheimer's Society, who not only fund research into this devastating disease but also offer help to sufferers and their families. This is a heartbreaking disease that is often dismissed as something that happens to old people and therefore not important. With the sad loss of Sir Terry Pratchett recently, I hope this cause is on the minds of many right now.
I will donate:
£1 for every hour I stay awake
1p for every page read
Josh also thinks I need some kind of forfeit if I do fall asleep, since it's for charity (it's fine to sleep during the even though). Suggestions welcomed or I might well be forced to read Jordan's biography...
A little birdie told me sign-ups for the readathon should be open very, very soon. It's a really fun event, so I encourage you to sign up too. I'll be back soon with some readathon recommendations.
