Augie Holds 12-Hour Reading Marathon
SIOUX FALLS, SD - Sprawled all over couches and chairs, sipping coffee and eating donuts, students and faculty gathered together Saturday afternoon at Augustana College for a 12-hour reading marathon of "Paradise Lost" by Milton.

From 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. the entire 12 books are expected to be read. Participants, which were a variety of majors, signed up to read each of the different characters. Most of the English faculty also participated.

A new group of readers stepped in front of the microphones for each book.

Mitchell Harris, assistant professor of English, chose "Paradise Lost" as a supplement to his curriculum.

Harris hopes to make this an annual event and is contemplating reading "The Great Gatsby" for next year's marathon.
