Read-a-Thon Update: Hour Zero

Currently reading: The Hunger Games

Thoughtsicles: I'm not going to lie, getting out of bed was painful. I think I dreamt about the Read-a-Thon all night long and it was awful. But now that I'm awake and I've got my pot of tea and I can smell the scones in the oven, I'm perking up a bit. And I'm hoping The Hunger Games is a good first choice. Here goes!

Book #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 your goals today!

(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.
