It's Almost Time! Dewey's 24 Hour Read-A-Thon: October 2010

Posted by Ann Roberts at 4:27 AM
I can't believe that it is time to start again!! I'm just getting myself set up and ready to go. Thanks to my bookfriend Shaunesay for helping me out with a new template this year.

I'm going to start by finishing the book that I am currently reading. I'm about 61% through 384 pages. So I'll get to count 149 pages in my total page count...but I won't count the book for the readathon.

I've also got a commitment tonight so I'll be missing in action for a few hours around 5:30pm EST. But I'll try to make up for it by reading longer than scheduled 24 hours.

Almost time to get started!

(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.
