The total number of hours read is a function of the average number of hours read per participant and the number of participants. The guideline for most libraries for read-a-thons is 30 minutes a day. for a month-long read-a-thon (30 days) this means roughly 15 hours per participant. However, we also envision adding a number of factors to encourage a competitive environment to encourage students to maximize their hours read. See maximizing hours read for details on how we will work to maximize the average number of hours read per participant.
