Time for a break to make a fresh pot of tea and change up my books ;) I've enjoyed my first 2 hours a lot, they flew by in my normal weekend morning routine of reading with a cup of tea. I have a feeling I won't be checking in on the computer too much today, but will just read and look in at others intermittently.


  1. Wow, you're off to a great start! Happy reading!

  2. Hope you're having fun reading! Good luck!

  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.
