Let the Wild Reading Rumpus Begin!

I'm sitting in my husband's comfy chair, quilt on lap, t.v. on low for background noise, hot coffee in my mug and my first book ready to go!!

    If You Come Softly is a great read-a-thon read, but saaaad. Enjoy! I'll be here to cheer since I did read-a-thon yesterday.

  10. Traditional read-a-thon blessing:

    May the bookshelf be there to greet you.
    May all the books appeal.
    May the fridge be full of tasty snacks;
    the words fall soft upon your eyes and until the read-a-thon ends,
    may you always hold a book in the palm of your hand.

    Good luck today!
