From October 2008 through October 2009, Nina read a book a day and wrote a review of each book on Read All Day, her blog. She began her year in an effort to come to terms with the tragic death of her oldest sister, Anne-Marie, and to find purpose and meaning in her life. She called her year of reading THE 365 PROJECT.
Nina is a mother, sister, daughter, and friend. She writes, "I fold prodigious amounts of laundry, create ingenious but less than delicious meals from whatever I can find in my fridge, obey the three cats that deign to live within my house, and I read lots and lots and lots of books." She's a graduate of Tufts University and Harvard Law School, and has worked at many jobs and pursued a variety of careers.
Nina's year of reading was picked up by The New York Times in October of 2009, and followed up by other news organizations, including The New Yorker and CNN. Read more about her on her website / book review blog, Read All Day.
