  1. I can't believe the Readathon is already here!!! Happy Reading.

  2. Apple, peach and pumpkin pie,
    You can’t read everything,
    But why not try?
    Happy Readathon!
    Go Team Simile!!!

  3. (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.

  4. A full 24 hours of reading !!! All the best to you, will hang around to cheer you on!

    Loge your choice of books!

  5. Wow, the full 24 hours! Way to go!

  6. Thanks for all the cheers everyone, some very creative ones out there. Thanks for coming by, and hope all of you had a good readathon.
