Video Break #1 :: Readathon Favorites
This year’s hosts for the 24 Hour Readathon were especially awesome at finding videos that kept us entertained, motivated, and engaged, so I wanted to share a few with you this week. Aside from the glorious video I posted on Saturday of Benedict Cumberbatch reading The Little Red Hen, there was this one from Sesame Street that tapped my nostalgic heart, and another one from middle school kids in my own town (surprising to see, I have to admit!). But the one that made me laugh out loud was a parody centered on a mash-up of Jane Austen and Downton Abbey. I immediately shared it on Twitter with my two closest friends, but I had to post it here for anyone who hasn’t seen it yet. It’s obviously more hilarious to those of us who watch Downton and have read Austen, but maybe you’ll find it humorous, too. (Seriously, how can anything be wrong when it gives a shout-out to Horatio Hornblower*?!)
Come back tomorrow for another video fave from this spring’s readathon!
