Every year, NaNoWriMo (aka National Novel Writing Month) challenges writers to write a novel (or at least 50,000 words) in the month of November.
If you are one of those who has taken up the challenge, good luck! Writing that many words is no small feat. For my part, I am creating a different challenge, National Novel Reading Month. 
Lately, I have gotten into the habit of watching video at night before bed, instead of reading, which used to be my primary form of leisure and relaxation. I could blame it on App Camp. After a long busy day managing a busy bunch of smart girls and volunteers, it was easy to zone out in the evening with an episode or two of Star Trek.
It is a habit, and not a good one. My NaNoReadMo goal is to read novels for 50 hours in November, in an effort to reestablish my prior habit of reading. I think it's like a diet: if you don't plan for it and set goals, if all you eat is junk food, you will crave junk food and you won't magically start eating healthy. My bookshelf needs to be stocked with some good choices. I'm starting with The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell, whose work I love.
I'm open to suggestions. I think I can read 8-10 books in 50 hours. Look for short book reports in this space. :-)
 I know it's not really national, it's just me here in Portland, Oregon. PoNoReadMo?
