Nigeria’s Bayode Treasures-Olawunmi blew the mind of several internet users few days ago when the news of his 120 hours non-stop reading feat spread across social media platforms.
It all started as a dream but now reality for the young amazing reader.
Treasures-Olawunmi over the weekend earned the world record for the longest marathon reading.
His over 120-hours loud reading with two hours break spread over every 24 hours meant that he surpasses a record set in 2008.
The now second-best record was set by a Nepalese who read a total of 17 books aloud in 113 hours 15 minutes. In his case, Boyade read for 122 hours over a five-day stretch at the Herbert Macaulay Library in the commercial capital, Lagos.
His Twitter bio reads: “I read for 120 hours non-stop for the Guinness World Record in the Longest Marathon Reading Aloud Category. For the love of READING; I did it for the CULTURE!”
He shares his story and his motivation at the start of the adventure.
