As you may know, National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo or just NaNo) just kicked off its 17th year on November 1. Participants commit to write a 50,000 word novel in the month of November. Most of these novels aren’t any good, but several have gone on to be published, such as Cinder, The Night Circus, and Fangirl.
(I participated last year and wrote a little about my NaNoWriMo the experience here. For the record, my novel is terrible.)
NaNoReadMo stands for National Novel Reading Month. We need great novel writers, of course, but we also need great novel readers. And while not all of us dream of writing novels, many of us adore reading them.
Austin Kleon created a site for NaNoReadMo, where participants can pledge to share one novel they love every day. You can do this on facebook, twitter, instagram, or in the comments here at MMD.
Starting today, and every day of November, share a novel you like with the #NaNoReadMo tag.
I’ll be sharing mine mostly on my instagram account (@annebogel), and I’ll tag every picture of my great novel recommendations with the tags #NaNoReadMo and #MMDreading. If you do the same, I’ll share a round-up (or two) of my favorite photos and recommendations here on the blog.
