Happy Readathon

Good morning. I am up bright and early (well…for a Saturday) for Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon. I am taking a laid back approach this time around. I’ll read what I read – no pressure. I’ve had at least 3 absolutely insane weekends in a row and I’m glad for this relaxing one. What does this mean for you? Well, I probably won’t post here every four hours like I generally do. And I’m not sure I’ll track my “stats” as closely either. I just want to read. And maybe get through some library books.

So good luck to all the readers. And cheerleaders. Hope everyone has fun.

    That’s the right attitude! So I don’t need to remind you to take breaks when you need them 🙂 Enjoy your reading.

    Getting through the library pile: that sounds like a great idea. This is my first Read-A-Thon, so I have big ideas about whittling down my reading piles as well. Enjoy!

    Sometimes just taking it slow is the way to go! Enjoy your relaxed readathon!

    Read and enjoy, that’s what this is all about.

    I’m a total stats fool during the read-a-thon, mainly because it’s the only time I feel like I’m making loads of progress and being accomplished in my reading, haha. But, I’m going with my typically chill attitude and maybe taking it one step further but not selecting books before hand and just going with the flow. What I read and when and for how long will be what it’ll be.

    Have a great time!

    (Non)traditional Buddhist readathon blessing:

    Just as the books fill the shelves,
    Pile together on the floor and stack up on the table
    So may the joy of the readathon
    Flow forth to brighten your day and lift your spirit.
    Books already read, books in progress and books yet to be read.

    By the power of every word on the page
    May your book be delightful,
    As scary as Lovecraft’s Cthulhu
    Or as sweet as a box of See’s candy.

    Let the power of the images evoked by words
    Keep you stay awake long through the night
    May no obstacle impede
    Your day filled with books.

    For all of those who are reading today
    Who follow in the path of Dewey
    May your day be filled with the four blessings
    Of fabulous books, tasty snacks, comfy chairs and joy.
