(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.

Sorry you won't be joining in, but regardless I hope you have a good day and spend some of it with a good book.

One, Two, Three, Four
Get one done and read some more
Five, Six, Seven, Eight
Reading so much, can't see straight
Nine, Ten, Eleven, Twelve
Pick another up off the shelf!
Happy Reading!

It's tough to balance reading and cheering - I'm cheering for you to keep cheering for others! :-D (And hope you get some book time in, too!)

Congrats to the winners! I can't join in the Read-a-thon officially, but will hopefully get some reading in, and leave a few comments on participating book blogs. :)

Don't let the late hour
