Nigeria’s Bayode Treasures-Olawunmi had kicked off and attempts to set a new Guinness World Record for ”The Longest Reading Marathon (Read Aloud).” and we’re rooting for him. He will be reading for 120 hours straight, with only 2 hours break every 24 hours.
He began reading 1:30 PM on Monday, and is set to break the record at 12 am today. Bayode is reading and hoping to break the Guinness World Record Marathon from Herbert Macaulay Library, Yaba in Lagos Nigeria.
He also made the announcement via Twitter saying
My name is Treasure Olawunmi Bayode. Starting 12pm today, I’ll start the journey of breaking a Guinness World Record in the “Longest Marathon Reading Aloud” Category at the You Read Library, Herbert Macaulay Way, Yaba.
