Read-A-Thon Time!

I have decided to join to the 24 hour Read-A-Thon for the first time, which will happen tomorrow. I am not going to read the 24 hours as I have had a difficult week at school and have English classes in the morning (even though, I'll try to read in my breaks), but for the remains of the day I'll read as much as I can.

I am planning to finish Travesuras de la Niña Mala (Bad Girl) by Mario Vargas Llosa, and read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer Stone by J. K. Rowling and Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. I hope I can finish them all!

I am also being a cheerleader for 6 hours, so I'll be paying attention to all the participants I can besides the ones I was assigned.
It is going to be lots of fun!

(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.

The party’s just starting to pop
And you’re already having fun.
Don’t let the momentum stop
And get some reading done!

Hope you're having a great time! I'm cheering part-time as well--so fun to visit everyone. :) Enjoy Harry Potter!!

I'm reading Harry and the Sorcerer's Stone right now...it's the first time I've read anything from the series. I'm loving it :)

Enjoy!!!
