Nevada librarians seek world reading-aloud record

Nevada librarians seek world reading-aloud record. This looks like it was fun. And a great PR stunt as well as USA Today picked the story up! I am not a big Harry Potter fan (I know, I could have my MLS revoked for that statement) but with the upcoming release of the sixth Harry Potter book the Harry Potter theme seems appropriate.

From the site:

Six Nevada librarians hope to earn a place in the Guinness Book of World Records after reading aloud for 100 consecutive hours.

The team attempted to break the 81-hour, read-aloud record set by a group of Australian librarians by reading nonstop from Monday morning until Friday.

The librarians read in shifts and were not allowed to leave the Paseo Verde Library except for hourly restroom breaks. Team members slept in sleeping bags on the floor.
