Readathon October 2010 - Update 1 - The Familiars

Title of book(s) read since last update:
The Familiars by Adam Jay Epstein and Andrew Jacobson
really enjoying this so far.  I can see how it would be appealing to students who like action and adventure.  Although there are humans in the book, I think the animals will make it appealing to even more students.

  1. "Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body." - Joseph Addison
    Have a great workout today :)

  2. Just stopping by to cheer you on! Looks like you have some great books picked out for the read-a-thon!

  3. Have fun with your choices, you're doing great!

  4. (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.
