The B&N Reads blog has released research that says the day before Thanksgiving is the biggest reading day of the year!
"A national independent survey concerning reading habits around the holiday season, which proved beyond any doubt the biggest reading day of the year—a day that shall forever more be known as Reading Day—is Thanksgiving Eve. Seventy-seven percent of respondents reported that they read at least one book on that day; 60 percent said they pack or purchase reading materials specifically for pre-holiday reading."
They expound on a few theories for the bump in literary pursuits including holiday travel and escaping chatty relatives.
