Sweet Readathon

9 Apr

When I woke up this morning I discovered a message from Rebecca at The Book Lady’s Blog asking if I had ever parodied Sweet Caroline. She was thinking Sweet Readathon should be a song. And I agree, even though I’d already posted this read-a-thon’s song on my own blog.

So I donned the pom-poms and got to work…

Sweet Readathon (to the tune of Neil Diamond’s Sweet Caroline)

Where it began, it all began with Dewey
And wow, it keeps on going strong
It happens in the fall
And again in the spring
It’s when readers have a ball

Books, reading books, blogging books
Cheering here, cheering there
Oh, sweet Readathon
Reading should always be so good
Dontcha just love all the readers in our ‘hood?

And now we, we read intot the night, whooo
And it don’t seem so lonely
We fill it up with all our books, oh
And when we read
Reading brings us together
How can I not read with all of you?

Oh, books, reading one, reading two
Cheering you and tweeting you
Oh, sweet Readathon
Reading should always be so good
Dontcha just love all the readers in our ‘hood?

Ohhh, sweet Readathon, reading should always be so good

See you all tomorrow at the read-a-thon!
