j-flamingo reflections

Inspired by the grace and beauty of the flamingo, my life reflected by my love of reading, writing and creating.

One of my favorite gigs: Dewey's Read-a-thon Cheerleading

“The greatest gift is a passion for reading. It is cheap, it consoles, it distracts, it excites, it gives you knowledge of the world and experience of a wide kind. It is a moral illumination.”

~Elizabeth Hardwick



It's coming up and time for one of my favorite gigs during the year. I love signing up for cheerleading those who read in Dewey's Read-a-thon. It's scheduled for Oct. 9-10 this year. It's a 24-hr. read-a-thon just like in the good old high school days when I did this type of reading marathon with my friends. Now, that I'm older with more responsiblities I'm only able to sign up as a cheerleader at this time. I do love to read the blogs and let them know that I'm rooting for them. Not to mention, I'm able to get a few more ideas for books for my ever-growing TBR list on Goodreads.

Go, readers, Go!

Sounds fun! I've never done a read-a-thon type challenge. Like you, I've got too much going on to take a whole day (without sleep) to do nothing but read. But it sounds an awful lot like the perfect vacation. Have fun with the cheerleading. And maybe you can squeeze a *little* reading in during the day.

Thanks, I know I'll have fun cheerleading and I do plan to grab a *little* reading time for myself. :)

She is pure Alice in Wonderland, and her appearance and demeanor are a nicely judged mix of the Red Queen and a flamingo.
