Event spokesman Vic Nickson said more people were needed to take part in the reading.
"You will not be required to stand up and read from the pulpit," he said."
He said the event was to be run in a "relaxed" way - and he did not need fast readers either.
"This is not going to be a marathon race. We want the event to last for 72 hours," he said.
