Read With Me Readathon



For months now, my TBR shelves have been filling up, I have six books I received from requests at my local library, there’s a Jemisin sci-fi book I haven’t gotten to—IT’S TIME FOR A PERSONAL READATHON!!! Who wants to join me? SIGN UP TODAY!

SATURDAY, OCTOBER SECOND, beginning at 7 a.m. CDT

Read along with Rae in the READ WITH ME READATHON

Get your snacks from the store tomorrow and cook ahead, so all you’ll have to do Saturday is warm over.

My Better Half is the first to sign up…look for the comments and be the next. There is no ending time, just read, read, read for as long as you can, then sign off. I hope to do at least twelve hours, myself.

Greetings, it’s National Coffee Day.

September 29th is National Coffee Day in the U.S., just two days ahead of International Coffee Day on October first.

Let’s celebrate the glories of coffee! Nothing acts like a perk-me-up, like a help-me-stay-up-late, like a wake-me-up like good old coffee.

However you take your coffee, whether you add something to it or take it black, coffee has insinuated itself as part of the American lifestyle.

Let’s celebrate first thing Wednesday morning together with our first cuppa’ together, giving coffee its due and toasting mugs to National Coffee Day.

Open the Magic Day

Annette Rochelle Aben

National Open the Magic Day is

September 25th.


The purpose of this special day is to encourage read-alouds, picture books, the love of reading, and children finding their reading voice.

 To celebrate the day, people are encouraged to read a picture book with a child (children). 

 This is the first year that this day is to be observed, so think of the wonderful time you can have setting up an even bigger celebration in the coming years…
