This has been a wonderful day so far. After a very slow start with Dimple and myself reading in turns for two hours, we suddenly had an influx of reading when schools closed, and so many children had come in to read with great enthusiasm and perseverance, many with full sponsorship sheets. I think the next two hours are going to be tough as we'll be down to two readers again, but there have been promises from 9 onwards, so I'm hopeful we'll make it. Katherine Hetzel (author of Granny Rainbow) couldn't get in but sent us a video of her reading, so I'll use it to give us a short break, then put on Facebook

24 hours to go to our Reading Marathon. Getting excited! We've just changed the window to alert shoppers in Oadby to what is happening. And Radio Leicester have let me broadcast an appeal for volunteers. I watched Gareth Malone's Choir last night making the Children in Need single and immediately bought one on iTunes. It is SUCH a great cause, helping so many needy children.
