NEW BEDFORD, Mass.—The New Bedford Whaling Museum is calling all "Moby-Dick" fans.

The museum is currently seeking readers for the 16th annual "Moby-Dick" reading marathon early next year.

The readers will get a 10-minute slot in the marathon when Herman Melville's classic novel of man versus whale is read from cover to cover without breaks. The reading takes about 25 hours.

The Standard-Times reports that the event scheduled for Jan.6 through Jan. 8 has turned into a three-day celebration that includes Melville-related exhibits, lectures, quiz programs and a dinner.

Anyone interested in being a reader can call 508-997-0046, ext. 151, to request a slot.
