Dewey's 24-Hour Read-a-Thon Start!

Finally, it's time for Dewey's  24-Hour Read-a-Thon!

I still haven't decided with which book I'll start, I'll just pick one from the pile of books I've chosen for the read-a-thon! 
I'm not setting up any goals, I'm just planning to read as much as I can & to have lots of fun & I'm hoping I'll stay up all night reading!

Happy reading everyone!


  1. Oh the places you will go today
    The people you will meet
    Your books will be your gateway
    Adventure your retreat.

    And if I may, I’ll follow
    As you read and read so more
    Until this day turns to the morrow
    Cheering you on with a loud exuberant roar!

    Best Wishes on maKing your reading goals

  2. (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.
