NaRMo: National Book Review Month

When November rolls around, we hear talk of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), a challenge where writers nationwide pick up their pens in a mad scramble to a 50,000-word finish line. March will see the start of the slightly less well-known National Novel Editing Month (NaNoEdMo), where writers attempt to edit their November masterpieces. But in between the two, there’s something new and exciting.


This February, SUNY Geneseo launches the first annual National Book Review Month (NaRMo). NaRMo seeks to popularize the too-often-overlooked book reviewing process, and to promote reading in general. Have you found a book you loved, a book you’re just bursting to talk about, or even a book you couldn’t stand? Tell people about it! The more we share our thoughts about what we read, the more we can talk about the wonderful writing available to us!
