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.
Happy Readathon! Have fun today!
That’s the right attitude! So I don’t need to remind you to take breaks when you need them 🙂 Enjoy your reading.
Have fun reading today! i wish I could take a break from life and participate!
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!
Hope you’re having fun reading today. Good luck!
I am here
(let it be clear)
(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.
Hope you are having a wonderful readathon, Michelle! Happy Reading and Have a Wonderful Time!
Enjoy your reading!
How is it going? Continue to enjoy your reading and have fun. Remember to take breaks!
Happy relaxing and reading!
