The pressure is on for Tampa Bay to enter 2018 as a world record holder. Wordier than thou is responsible for organizing this attempt to gather the most people reading to themselves in a public place at one time.

This Guinness Book of World Records attempt is set for January 1 and will take place in the Curtis Hixon Park. Readers can either bring their own book from which they will read or if they are early enough, they can read from a book which will be given to them. 

As well as the reading activity, there will be food trucks with delicious treats on offer, fun activities, and even some prizes to be won. This is a worthy event for the readers among you. And even if you are not a reader, perhaps it is a good resolution to start off the New Year!
