Readathon update! Augh!

Augh, I've been reading for an hour, and I just realized that I never did my start post! Augh! Augh!

Ahem.

I'm reading Emma, by Jane Austen. And oh my word, the cringe-inducing DRAMA. Mr. Knightly is the only person I don't wanna punch in the FACE.






If you wanna sponsor me to help kids with Cancer, you do that HERE.
Books I've already pledged to read in 24 hours: 7

So glad to comment as the first one ;)
So my name is Agata and I am your personal cheerleader for the next... 23 hours or so!
Have a great day reading and enjoy those pages turned. I will come back to check on you later.
As for me, not a Jane Austen fan :P I kicked off with a short story by Stephen King.

Cheers from Poland,
Agi

You know you're starting the day right when you want to punch things. ::kidding::

I'll be here to keep you from punching everything...and to try to keep you awake of course. :)

(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.

That's ambitious, reading Emma for the readathon! I'm one of your cheerleaders, hope you're enjoying it so far (and kept from punching things :P)

@Agi: Okay, I'm just gonna be extremely impressed now. You're reading Stephen King, AND you're in Poland? AWESOME. :D
@Mister: But that's how I always want to start the day! I must be doing things right! :D
@Ms. Marsha: :D :D :D :D Thank you! I approve of your team name.
@Softdrink: I have no idea how to respond to that, other than awe and delight. I will light a candle in your honour.
@irison: Thank you! I have punched no one, you'll be happy to know. :D I'm just prone to social akwardness, so much of this book is like all my worst nightmares.

Going to take a break and eat and read....but I'll be back to make sure you're still going strong!

On Marsha's team! (Team Hyperbole)
