rat 2

Two hours down. Two books down. But they were short at 139 pages between the two of them. (Loving short books, may stick with them for whole readathon.) Had one cup of coffee, and one cup of honeycomb. Was reading in den, but ready to nest up in bedroom for a while with dogs. I’m feeling a little cold. DH has gone to McDonald to get us breakfast, for a treat… have a feeling this is going to be a grease/ sugar filled day…

(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.
