Cheerleading for Team Simile

Today is the Dewey 24 Hour Readathon! I knew my daughter-shuttling life would be too hectic to spend a day reading, so I signed up to cheer. (Seriously, it's all about the pom-poms!) This time the Cheering Teams are divided into literary terms. I'm on Team Simile -- although I definitely would have thought I belonged on Team Irony :-)

I'll be heading to as many Team Simile blogs as I can throughout the day, and tweeting to the Twitter-verse (I'm @ Col_Reads), cheering on the valiant readers! I wish everyone a day of Good Words!


  1. Thanks for the cheer! I'm looking forward to a wonderful literary day!

    Julie @ Knitting and Sundries

  2. great name (I am a Colleen too) :)

    Thanks for cheering!

  3. Thank you for the adorable poem! Have fun!

  4. So loved the personal 'cheer' which arrived from Ellie yesterday. Is there anything nicer than a handwritten note? I think not. Kisses to you both, and a happy day (hour? minute?) reading to us all.

  5. Julie -- I'm happy to cheer for a fellow knitter and booklover!

    Colleen (Booksync) -- It's always nice to meet another Colleen!

    Kanaye -- It's the least I could do, glad you enjoyed it!

    Bellezza -- The kisses are for you! Thanks so much for the book. Ellie's older sister is being inundated with information from colleges now, so it's so nice for her to get something in the mail herself. Have a great day reading, I'll stop by and cheer there too!

  6. I wish colleges would have wooed my son! He's only a student when he wishes to be, which wasn't in high school. We're ecstatic he returned to our local junior college this fall. Ah, the pride of an educator (me) needed to be adjusted in our family!

  7. Bellezza -- some day we will have to talk at length about the alternate issue of getting what you expected -- in spades :-). Motherhood is a wonderful rollercoaster, isn't it? I have loved the ride, as I'm sure you have, but I've had days where I wondered if I could handle the next plunge! I hope your Readathon was wonderful!

  8. Thanks so much for the cheers! I appreciate the support :) I've taken a little time off of reading for some mother-daughter time. More reading after dinner!

    Thanks, Lucy / thereadingdate

  9. Great cheering - your making me smile!
