Live from Abu Dhabi Connect the World takes you on a journey across continents, investigating the stories that are changing our world.
Nina Sankovitch has become an Internet phenomenon by documenting her goal of reading and reviewing a book every day for 365 days. Despite having four children and a very busy life Sankovitch has stuck to her goal and published her reviews on her Web site.

On Tuesday Sankovitch will have read her 358th book in as many days. The environmental lawyer is using reading to cope with her sister’s untimely death and to inspire a love of books in others.
Her read-all-day project has some ground rules: all books are ones she has not read before; she reads only one book per author, and she reads one day and posts a review the following morning. By necessity she sticks to books no longer than 300 pages (with a couple of exceptions).
With just over one week to go, Sankovitch talks to Connect the World about her amazing feat. Is reading a pre-Internet, pre-TV anachronism? Nina insists not. She thinks the joy and inspiration you can get from books cannot be found elsewhere.
Send us your comments, questions for Nina and we’ll do our best to use them on Tuesday's show.
