Readathon: Hour 10, 11, 12, 13: La Lecture est Fondamentale

This has to be my favorite picture of all time. I'm the "Deborah" in the chair. This was published in our town's newspaper when I was in first grade. Happily, I grew up to be a librarian working in the same town!

I'm posting this in response to Joystory's Reading is Fundamental MiniChallenge.


  1. Great picture! I have a few of me at that age & younger from my hometown newspaper.

    Hope you're having fun! Cheering from your neck of the woods in Houston!

  2. Wow! I just loved this picture. Thanks for sharing...

  3. Just stopped here to leave a cheer - "Rock on, Readathon-er!"

    Great picture! Happy reading :-D.

  4. Hey there.. just stopping by to see how you are doing. I know how hard it is to blog and read so my thoughts are with you. Make sure you get up to stretch every now and then.

  5. Cutest picture ever! You are doing a great job with your reading!!

    The reading will stop
    Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow
    your book count will be higher
    Just keep thinking about tomorrow
    all the great books you will have to talk about
    with your blog friends
    If you get blurred or sore, or sleepy
    Just stick up your chin
    and grin
    and say
    My TO BE READ PILE, Tomorrow
    will be smaller than it was before
    and your spirits will soar
    because then TOMORROW, TOMORROW You can go shopping TOMORROW at Amazon and BUY SOME MORE!

    :D lol

  11. What a great picture of yourself to have! If you haven't already posted it in your library (somewhere, anywhere), I suggest you should do that.
