Five students recently set a world record after reading aloud from the complete works of historian and former Dominican President Juan Bosch for more than 300 straight hours. Their goal was to raise awareness about books in the Dominican Republic, and they hoped to encourage business owners to donate to local libraries. Unfortunately, less than 40% of primary schools in the Dominic Republic have a library, (and many of those that do are stocked with out-of-date materials), so here's hoping their efforts are recognized.
