#Readathon: Shel's Second Update

So far so good:

Coffee:  One cup drunk.  (Plus more poured!)

Books Read:  Monkey and Me by Emily Gravett (picturebook), The Cow Loves Cookies by Karma Wilson (picturebook) and The Village Garage by G. Brian Karas (picturebook).

Book Currently Reading:  Anything But Typical by Nora Raleigh Baskin (50 pages to go!)

Snacks Consumed Since Last Update:  None!  I'm becoming a hungry bear.  (And after reading The Cow Loves Cookies, I want COOKIES!  That would clearly be the breakfast of readathon champions.)


  1. Oh I really enjoyed Anything But Typical, but I listened to the audio book. Sounds like you're off to a great start!

  2. Anything but Typical is in my reading stack for the read-a-thon! You're doing great!

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

  4. read, read, read
    don't think of it as a deed!

  5. (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.
