October 2010 24 Hour Read-a-Thon

This is my first foray into the 24 hour Read-A-Thon. I haven’t joined up for this – it started today at 1.00pm (GMT) and I’ve only just decided to give it ago, but I know there is no way I’ll be able to stay awake for the whole 24 hours. I like the blog button so that’s another reason for doing it.

I’m currently reading Exit Music by Ian Rankin, so that’s going to be my first choice. I’m not going to plan what else to read. I’m going to take whatever I fancy for variety. I have a bookcase of unread books to choose from plus a number of library books.

Unread Books

And so to read …

  1. (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.


  2. Wow! You have as many TBRs as I do! I never know whether that’s good or bad – do I cheer that I have so many wonderful choices, or do I get depressed and think I’ll never get them all read? Oh well, choosing the next read is so much fun.
