Harry Potter

So, after a long night last night babysitting for some friends, I was wondering if I was going to be able to pop out of bed this morning to start the readathon on time. But thanks to my lovely phone blaring The Pretender by the Foo Fighters and my friend coffee, I was up and at em in time. I started reading Love, Stargirl and have read about 20 pages so far, but decided that for a bit, until my head is completely awake, I am going to listen to Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire.

I love all the HP books. They are just fantastic! So far, I am really digging Love, Stargirl as well. I think that I will finish that one quickly but already have a feeling I'll like it. Anyway, hope you are all enjoying the readathon so far!

More updates later :)

(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.
